Grantchester Mysteries 2 Loveable full-time priest and part-time detective Canon Sidney Chambers is back, continuing his investigations. A mysterious stranger seeks sanctuary in Grantchester's church; a shooting weekend in the country has a sinister end; a friend receives poison pen letters; a piano falls on a musician's head; a school cricket match has an explosive finish; and on a holiday in Italy, Sidney is accused of stealing a priceless painting. On the home front, his new curate has become irritatingly popular with the parish and his daughter is starting to walk and talk.

The fourth of James Runcie's delightful Grantchester Mysteries, which ought to bring about a critical reappraisal of the genre rather dismissively referred to as cosy crime ... The ongoing plots bind the stories, yet each in themselves is precise ... They are a joy -- <b>Stuart Kelly</b> * <b><i>Scotland on Sunday</b></i> * All manner of nostalgic delights. Perfect reading for a sunny English garden * <b>Kate Saunders, <i>Independent</b></i> * The author knows the location well and has caught its dour charm and great art treasures to perfection. The story is a little art lesson in itself * <i><b>Country Life</b></i> * The violence in the Chambers stories takes place off-stage; the moral crises are internal. Perhaps the most startling aspect of these low-key, beguiling tales is their matter-of-fact depiction of a person of faith incorporating spiritual aspiration into daily life * <i><b>Wall Street Journal</i></b> *
