    Helmut Schauffler, a young Nazi working in the small English village of Comerford, sets out to play upon the post-war sensibilities and fears by terrorizing his new neighbors.

    A peek into an earlier time.

    This book was written in 1951. Sometimes when I read a modern novel which takes place in an earlier time, I wonder how close the author's imagination..Show More »

    Alfred Armiger was like a bull in the ring, belligerent and sure of himself. But Armiger was mortal after all. There was no stronger proof of it than the blood that oozed from his skull, mingling with the red wine he'd spilled on the floor at the moment of impact.

    This book won an Edgar award, and it deserves it.

    A vacation in Cornwall embroils the Felse family in the beguiling 18th-century legend of Jan Treverra and his beloved Morwena. When Felse assists a famous scholar in exhuming their bodies, he pulls away the stone on an even greater mystery.

    Not Your Run-Of-The-Mill Mystery

    I was never quite certain where the story was going. I love it when a mystery is unpredictable.

    The death of unpopular Herbert Terrell seems accidental - although this expert mountain climber plunged off a mere hill in Czechoslovakia. The saddest part of the tragedy is that no one cares, not his ex-wife, his step daughter Tossa at Oxford, or his colleagues at a British scientific institute...until Tossa is shocked into emotion by a mysterious note suggesting Terrell was murdered.

    The day after a Gothic door is returned to its original place in the Mottisham village church, two men are found dead. The Welsh villagers, closed and suspicious of outsiders, believe their deaths were not accidental, but part of an ancient legend that told of an unrepentant monk who tried to enter to the church by grasping the door's iron knocker.

    As usual with Ellis Peters, the characters were engaging, the story was interesting, and the ending was gripping! Simon Prebble is a wonderful reader..Show More »

But there was one place he hadn't expected to end up, and that was beneath the steeple of St. Eata's church, his body smashed like a cracked walnut. Superintendent George Felse is charged with sifting through a long list of suspects to catch the killer.
