This is a very clever plot with fascinating characters. Just when you think you have it worked out it takes a right angle bend and you realise you haven't. I recommend it it's a great listen.
New narrator makes it more engaging, though I can't quite grasp how the Prior has ceased to be Glaswegian - stroke perhaps, that left him with a "foreign" accent? - that can happen, a reverse miracle if you like.
The story has obvious "hooks" to grab those even slightly aware of the recent history of the Catholic Church; the diocese of Boston, the handyman with a false identity/past (cf Peter Tobin), and monks in Ealing....There are some twists though, and it's not all gloom like his last book. Just have to pray enough change has been made that stories like this will be historical, not topical. Miserere nobis.
