Murder at Maddleskirk Abbey Publisher's Summary

After Constable Nick of Aidensfield's retirement, he helped create a small private police force of monk-constables serving Maddleskirk Abbey and its adjoining college. The body of an unknown man is discovered in the crypt and Nick and DCS “Nabber” Napier welcome the assistance of the monkstables, as they have become known, as their knowledge proves invaluable.

As the investigation hots up, a prominent pupil of the college goes missing and the monkstables find themselves pitched into an intense investigation as they search for the missing boy. With help from retired Sgt Oscar Blaketon and ex-PC Alf Ventress, and some input from Claude Jeremiah Greengrass, Nick's experience is put to the test.

    When a woman confesses to Father Will, one of the monk-constables at Maddleskirk Abbey, that she has committed murder, he can do nothing but absolve her from her sin. The seal of confession is absolute. When a body is found in the nearby woodland, his moral dilemma grows. Detective Chief Superintendent "Nabber" Napier and his team have a murder to solve, but monks sworn by oath to silence are hardly the ideal candidates for questioning....
