Publisher's Summary

A fork of lightning and a crash of thunder herald the completion of a heinous crime.
In woodland belonging to the eccentric Lord Wychbold, a body has been crucified on a tree. On Easter Day, the Reverend Tobias Campion returns from morning service at St Luke's and discovers the corpse, already beginning to putrefy. A crown of thorns frames his face, bludgeoned beyond recognition, and a loincloth preserves what is left of his modesty.
The victim will not rise again, though the well-concealed secrets of the village will have to if the perpetrators are to be found. After a postmortem examination fails to identify the victim, Tobias and his old friend, Dr. Hansard, pledge to uncover the truth.

Sin and the forgiveness of sins seems very much to the fore of this book. The level of poverty and suffering of the villagers contrasts with the extravagance of the rich; has so much changed in the intervening 200 years?

I am not sure how in this, the third in this series, I noticed the plosives of the narrator whose otherwise bright voice seems appropriate for our very Christian young parson and the host of other characters. It was an irritation that detracted from the telling of the tale.
