A scholarly, inspiring speaker, a devoted husband and father...Gabriel Neville is the model of a modern minister. And it doesn’t hurt that he’s as beautiful as a gilded angel. More than one member of this swanky London parish has suggested that Father Gabriel would do credit to an archbishop’s robes. But all those hopes will blow away like smoke if one unknown blackmailer has his way. In desperation, Neville calls on a long-lost lover, the one person he feels he can trust with his secrets. This may not, it turns out, have been the cleverest idea.

About the Author:

Kate Charles, who was described by the Oxford Times as 'a most English writer', is in fact an expatriate American, though an unashamedly Anglophilic one. She has a special interest and expertise in clerical mysteries, and lectures frequently on crime novels with church backgrounds. Kate lives in Bedford with her husband and their dog, and is a former Chairman of the Crime Writers' Association and the Barbara Pym Society.

From Publishers Weekly:

Mixing sex and and ecclesiastics in her complex first mystery, Charles generally steers clear of sentimentality, although she comes dangerously close. The much-admired Father Gabriel Neville of St. Anne's, in London's Kensington Gardens, is a noted scholar and gifted orator. Outwardly a model minister--he is husband of Emily and father of exquisitely beautiful young twin daughters--Gabriel has a secret past that someone in the parish has discovered and threatened to reveal. In a desperate move, Gabriel asks David Middleton-Brown, a lover whom he abandoned for Emily 10 years earlier, to try to discover the author of the anonymous note. Ostensibly brought to the parish to guide the church's architectural repairs, David learns secrets over cups of tea. He also finds a semblance of passion activated, after a forlorn decade of near-celibacy, by Emily's chum Lucy. But David's investigation falters, a local gossip dies and the threat of revelations from Gabriel's past, seen to include the death of a youth, gains momentum. Ultimately we care more for characters than for the crime here; the Lucy/David quasi-affair is handled with tender finesse, and Gabriel hovers over the proceedings like a latter-day Dorian Gray, losing innocence with each new revelation.
