When lonely Roland Bagwich travels to the remote Abbey at St.Erwald's to sing in the choir, he anticipates a life of cultured, friendly routine doing what he does best. Little does he know that within days he will make himself thoroughly unpopular, and be accused of murdering his friend. But he finds hidden resources of bravery and persistence which enable him to solve the murder, thwart a deadly robbery, and find love in an unexpected place.
There is a mysterious child who, it turns out, does not exist. There is something hidden under the floor of the church that no one will talk about. There is an illegal alien who doesn't want to be helped. There is a dreadful secret about bees and honey that even bee-keepers don't know. There is wickedness and betrayal in the last place one would expect to find them.
Author of the "Greatest Cape" series of novels as well as several successful books about music, David Bramhall now turns his attention to the church with his usual eye for the weird, the sinister and the downright peculiar. In the words of one reviewer, this is "A great read. The plot is unusual and gripping and it kept me guessing right to the end. The author's masterful powers of description made me feel I actually know the characters & places intimately". A book that will be enjoyed by older children and adults alike.
David Bramhall lives in a small town in East Anglia with his wife, also a musician, where he writes music as well as books, and plays with historic steam locomotives in his spare time.
