Sidney discovers that being a detective, like being a clergyman, means that you are never off duty... _______________ 'A charmingly effective tale of detection ... a satisfyingly old-fashioned read' - The Times 'No detective since Father Brown has been more engaging than Canon Sidney Chambers' - Salley Vickers 'The coziest of cozy murder mysteries' - New York Times Book Review 'Full of witty phrases to delight the reader' - Peggy Woodford, Church Times 'Gentle criminal entertainment with a pleasantly old-fashioned feel to it' - Andrew Taylor, Spectator
