A fork of lightning and a crash of thunder herald the completion of a heinous crime.

In woodland belonging to the eccentric Lord Wychbold, a body has been crucified on a tree. On Easter Day, the Reverend Tobias Campion returns from morning service at St Luke's and discovers the corpse, already beginning to putrefy. A crown of thorns frames his face, bludgeoned beyond recognition, and a loincloth preserves what is left of his modesty.

The victim will not rise again, though the well-concealed secrets of the village will have to if the perpetrators are to be found. After a postmortem examination fails to identify the victim, Tobias and his old friend, Dr. Hansard, pledge to uncover the truth.

About the Author:

Judith Cutler began writing at an early age, and after studying English Literature she worked as a teacher in Birmingham for many years. Her career as a writer began in earnest whilst recovering from chickenpox and her short stories have been widely published in magazines, anthologies and read on radio.

Review:

Do not miss one word when reading this elegant, faultlessly edited, sometimes terrifying and hugely entertaining novel, which deserves high praise for a wonderful but unsparing picture of country life in the early 19th century. (Historical Novels Review)

"Notwithstanding the horror of the events that unfold as the book progresses, Campion narrates his memoir with self-deprecating frankness and humour. He accompanies the reader through numerous enigmatic twists with the charm of an amiable companion, an experience that I enjoyed immensely." (Dorothy Marshall-Gent, Promoting Crime Fiction Blog)

"Now with "Cheating The Hangman" she has once again demonstrated her impressive skills as a novelist and storyteller. An ideal selection for community library large print Mystery/Suspense collections, "Cheating The Hangman" will prove to be a highly entertaining addition for the personal reading lists of all enthusiastic mystery fans." (Midwest Book Review)
