Review:

Baroness Troutbeck--"Jack" to her friends--is the hard-drinking, hard-living lady of "a certain age" who stars in Ruth Dudley Edward's series of comic mysteries. In Murder in a Cathedral, the seventh installment, Jack persuades her impecunious friend Robert Amiss to take a job with her pal Canon Flubert, inadvertently sending him into a firestorm of ecclesiastical scandal: in a church run by gay priests, witches, and New Age enthusiasts, the appointment of a fundamentalist dean is anathema. When the dean turns up dead, everyone's a suspect. Bad enough that Amiss has to cope with the scandal, but soon he also has the Baroness on his hands in a madcap search for the Cathedral killer.

From AudioFile:

Ruth Dudley Edwards has written a humorous mystery, which includes high levels of Anglican ministry, as well as those who are outside of church society. The vivid description of the cathedral and the areas around it make it easy to picture the setting and people living there. Bill Wallis's reading does full justice to the plot's twists and turns, and he gives a perfect rendition of the characters' voices. Lady Troutbeck's manipulation and maniacal driving while talking on her cell phone; the small asides between Robert Amiss and David Elsworthy, the new bishop; the niggling arguments between the various clergymen--all add to the witty tone of the novel.

Westonbury Cathedral has been dominated by a clique of High-Church gays, so when Norman Cooper, an austere, intolerant evangelist is appointed dean, there is shock, outrage and fear. David Elworthy, the gentile and politically innocent new bishop, is distraught at the prospect of warfare between the factions and cries on the shoulder of his old friend, the redoubable Baroness Troutbeck, who forces her unofficial troubleshooter, Robert Amiss, to move into the bishop's palace. Soon there is a clerical corpse in the cathedral. Signed by Author. Book. Bookseller Inventory # 014704
