Canon Daniel Clement has suffered a secret humiliation and to recover takes respite at the monastery where he was a novice.

But the monastery doesn't allow the break he needs, for tensions are building there too. There is a death at the monastery, and Daniel thinks it might be murder.

Meanwhile back at Champton, Daniel is the subject of village gossip, his mother Audrey is up to something again, there's trouble at the dress shop, trouble up at the big house, and the puppies are running riot.

As dark secrets unfold, can Daniel solve the mystery at the monastery without the help of Detective Seargeant Neil Vanloo?

Reviews for Murder at the Monastery

Coles's feline wit and infectious enthusiasm for ecclesiastical trivia make for a very moreish read. -- Jake Kerridge * THE DAILY TELEGRAPH * Written in Coles's customary wry style which owes much to the work of Alan Bennett. -- Geoffrey Wansell * DAILY MAIL *
