Lord and Lady Baaden-Boomethistle have been in residence for some weeks now, and the villagers are hoping for a return to the good old days, when the lord of the manor sprinkled benefits across the village like fairy dust. Father Max Tudor's invitation to dinner at the hall comes as a welcome novelty; it will be his first time meeting the famous family that once held sway in the area. Before he has time to starch his clerical collar and organize a babysitter, a sudden and suspicious death intervenes, and the handsome vicar's talent for sorting through clues to a murder is once again called into play in this charming and clever story.
"At least one head rolls in clergyman/detective Max Tudor's fifth seasonally themed case...[an] enjoyable blend of whimsy and homicide." (Kirkus Reviews)

Another enjoyable story of Father Max
Another wonderful story by G.M.Malliet
The author's reading of this book, like all the other Max Tudor mysteries, is great.
The Max Tudor mysteries are excellent, taken as individual books, but the greatest fun is in reading/listening from the first book, in succession. The author has fabulous twists and turns and the characters are well developed.
Michael Page - I can really envision the characters by the way he uses his voice.
Although - there are some recording edits called for in the first few chapters.
I think it's an 8-hour book, right? impossible.
These books are terrific to listen to while driving on a long work commute, to end the day, while doing chores, or just hanging around. Fantastic. Always sorry when they're over.
