Publisher's Summary

The body of a dead man is discovered in an overgrown cemetery in Bristol, the sign of the cross gouged into his flesh. At first it seems to coroner Jenny Cooper that all the evidence points to a horrific, if routine, suicide. Then an enigmatic young priest, Father Lucas Starr, arrives on Jenny’s doorstep, entreating her to hold an inquest into the death of Eva Donaldson, a high profile political campaigner whose past life continued to haunt her.

A young man, Paul Craven, has recently been sentenced for Eva’s brutal murder. But despite Craven’s conviction and the evidence against him, Father Lucas is convinced of the man’s innocence...

Good read!

I read the first book and enjoyed this one even more thanks to the excellent narrator. Complex and absorbing plot line. Recommended.

Tagged-on Ending

I enjoyed this book, right up until the end. I felt the story ended abruptly and then the real ending was tagged-on. Too much was packed into the epilogue, as though the writer had grown bored of developing the plot and wished to end it quickly. I'm sorry to say I'm returning it.
