Publisher's Summary

It is the 1960s and Canon Sidney Chambers is enjoying his first year of married life with his German bride Hildegard. But life in Grantchester rarely stays quiet for long. Our favourite clerical detective soon attempts to stop a serial killer who has a grievance against the clergy; investigates the disappearance of a famous painting; uncovers the fact that an "accidental" drowning on a film shoot may not have been so accidental after all; and discovers the reasons behind the theft of a baby from a hospital. In the meantime, Sidney wrestles with the problem of evil, attempts to fulfill the demands of Dickens, his faithful Labrador, and contemplates, as always, the nature of love.

Sidney Chambers is back! Hallelujah!

Our favourite Cambridge Canon is back! Canon Sidney Chambers, that lover of warm beer and hot jazz, returns once more in the third title in the Grantchester Mysteries series. In this series of short mysteries, Sidney tackles the changes to his life following his marriage, as well as being called to help solve several mysteries, including thefts and murders, all while keeping up to his tasks as an Anglican clergyman in the early 1960s.

These wonderful books are a combination of crime fiction and theological musings, which make very thought provoking novels. Fans of era-specific detective fiction will approve and enjoy, as well as those who like to contemplate the meaning of life, good and evil, right and wrong, and the link between religion and morality. James Runcie's work in combining these two genres is remarkable, and very enjoyable.

So, settle in with your favourite tipple and get listening!

A Different Grantchester

I enjoy the BBC series Grantchester but it has taken a vast turn from the original stories. I prefer the Sidney Chambers from the books. He remains a man of integrity throughout these three novels which is fitting for his position.
