Archdeacon Sidney Chambers is beginning to think that the life of a full-time priest (and part-time detective) is not easy. So when a bewitching divorcee in a mink coat interrupts Sidney's family lunch asking him to help locate her missing son, he hopes it will be an open and shut case. The last thing he expects is to be dragged into the mysterious workings of a sinister cult, or to find himself tangled up in another murder investigation. But, as always, the village of Grantchester is not as peaceful as it seems...From the theft of an heirloom to an ominous case of blackmail, Sidney is once again rushed off his feet in this eagerly anticipated fifth instalment in The Grantchester Mysteries series.

Review:

Those who would like an engaging summer read should pack James Runcie's latest tale of clerical detection, Sidney Chambers and the Dangers of Temptation -- Alexander McCall Smith * Observer * The running theme is love and loyalty between friends and within the family ... Runcie has the gift of the born story-teller with an easy style that makes it hard to put the book aside * Daily Mail * Perfect reading for a sunny English garden * Kate Saunders, The Times * Runcie has honed his style of light, escapist, small-town crime stories to something approaching perfection * Herald * Runcie works his magic using simple sentences, archetypal characters and a sense of suspense that creates an atmosphere of delicious anticipation * Independent * There is no reason at all why this series should not run and run and why Sidney Chambers should not occupy the same place in the pantheon as Miss Marple or Poirot * Catholic Herald * I'm always searching for perfect deckchair escapism and Runcie's `Grantchester Mysteries' tick all the boxes ... The clerical setting is perfect - Runcie is the son of a former archbishop, but it is his talent for old-fashioned storytelling that makes the magic * Saga * Follow the adventures of clergyman Sidney Chambers in six absorbing stories set in 1960s England * My Weekly *
