Publisher's Summary

The day after a Gothic door is returned to its original place in the Mottisham village church, two men are found dead. The Welsh villagers, closed and suspicious of outsiders, believe their deaths were not accidental, but part of an ancient legend that told of an unrepentant monk who tried to enter to the church by grasping the door's iron knocker.

More Inspector Felse, please!

As usual with Ellis Peters, the characters were engaging, the story was interesting, and the ending was gripping! Simon Prebble is a wonderful reader, and was in top form for this book. He gives each character his or her own voice, different point of view, and varying emotional depth. At the end, the murderer was creepily amoral, and the unlikely hero just wrung my heart.

Ellis Peters & Simon Prebble are a great combo, and this is a wonderful book! Please, Audible, get all of the "Recorded Books" recordings of Ellis Peters books that you can!!!!!!!

One of her best

I was surprised I enjoyed this book so much. I have always loved Peter's Cadfel series so I decided to give her Inspector Felse series a try. The story kept me guessing and I didn't figure out who did it until close to the end. Twists and turns kept the story moving. It is a mystery of its time, though, with old fashioned ideas about women and marriage. Simon Prebble is an exceptional narrator. He is perfect for this book.
