Publisher's Summary

A frightened monk from the island monastery of New Ararat, arrives seeking the help of Bishop Mitrofanii. The monks have been troubled by visions of a dark, hooded figure that appears to walk on the waters of the vast Blue Lake.Sceptical of ghost stories, Mitrofanii dispatches Alexei Lentochkin to investigate the mystery - only for Lentochkin himself to fall victim to the phantom. When two more of the Bishop's trusted advisors meet with unexpected fates, Sister Pelagia takes matters into her own hands.Translated by Andrew Bromfield.


What the Critics Say

"Pelagia's family likeness to Father Brown and Miss Marple is marked, and reading about her supplies a similarly decorous pleasure" (Literary Review)
