The cathedral town of Litchester is more used to carols by candlelight during the festive period than flames and intrigue, but the proposed sale of its 1225 copy of the Magna Carta in order to raise funds turns out to have far-reaching consequences. Merchant banker Mark Treasure has been invited down to arbitrate the vicious disagreement between members of the cathedral chapter regarding the sale and finds himself dealing with more than he bargained for when the Dean's verger is discovered murdered, his body left to burn, along with the ecclesiastical library. As his investigation progresses and the evidence points to mayhem and skulduggery, he discovers that Litchester is a town full of sins and secrets rather than peace on earth

A Mark Treasure Mystery

"The cold-blooded murder of Kevin Rees, Auxiliary Nurse at the private Howell Clinic for stroke victims, is greeted with apparent sorrow by all who knew him - well, nearly all. 'A born nurse' is the summation of his professional qualities by colleagues and patients alike. But is Dr. Edwin Howell, maverick neuro-psychiatrist, and co-owner of the clinic set in the shadow of Llandaff's Anglican Cathedral, just saving face when he anxiously divines the crime was the work of a burglar?" "Only when DCI Merlin Parry rejects such a facile solution and digs deeper into Rees's background do the unsavoury aspects of the young man's life surface. The police investigation reveals details of Rees's time not only at the clinic, but also in the army, at St. Mark's Hospital in London, and more especially with the London Ambulance Service. Was Denis Ingram, the rich and successful industrialist, now a patient at the Howell Clinic, somehow indebted to Rees? And why is Ingram's possibly unfaithful wife intent on deceiving the police about what she knows of Rees - something she has in common with the clinic's matron, as well as the wife of the head gardener, and the paramedic Stacey Fowler?" "The action moves from Cardiff to a manor house near Chepstow, to London's Festival Hall, and to the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Bristol, along the way directly involving Perdita Jones, Parry's fiance, Lucy, the eldest daughter of DS Gomer Lloyd and a string of crafted characters."--BOOK JACKET
