'Complex, with lots of sinister implications! moves the traditional crime novel on to some deeper level of exploration' Jane Jakeman, Independent It is 1970. David Byfield, a widowed parish priest with a dark past and a darker future, brings home a new wife to Roth. Throughout the summer, the consequences of the marriage reverberate through a village now submerged in a sprawling London suburb. Blinded by lust, Byfield is oblivious to the dangers that lie all about him: the menopausal churchwarden with a hopeless passion for her priest; his beautiful, neglected teenage daughter Rosemary; and the sinister presence of Frances Youlgreave -- poet, opium addict and suicide -- whose power stretches beyond the grave. Soon the murders and blasphemies begin. But does the responsibility lie in the present or the past And can Byfield, a prisoner of his own passion, break through to the truth before the final tragedy destroys what he most cherishes
