Attending to his paternal duties, Archdeacon Sidney Chambers is walking in the woods with his daughter Anna and their aging Labrador Byron when they stumble upon a body. Beside the dead man lies a basket of wild flowers, all poisonous. And so it is that Sidney is thrust into another murder investigation, entering a world of hippies, folk singers, and psychedelic plants, where love triangles and permissive behavior seem to hide something darker"--Back cover.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2017 March #2
    Love is at the center of each of these six episodes, spanning five and a half years in the 1970s, as Archdeacon Sidney Chambers continues pastoral duties as well as sleuthing. This side activity, most often undertaken with his close friend, Inspector Geordie Keating, leaves Chambers' wife, Hildegard, to develop a strong friendship with a fellow German, musician Rolfe von Arnim, a relationship that leaves the archdeacon jealous despite it paralleling his friendship with former flame Amanda Richmond. In the course of this fourth in the series, Chambers solves two murders that were motivated by love, tracks down his runaway teen nephew, supports Amanda in a dicey art scheme, stays at the side of another woman friend who makes a rape charge, and untangles the theft of a priceless Bible. But it's the final chapter, with its depth of emotion and compassion, that resonates most. Have tissues at the ready, because a stunning surprise signals a change in the archdeacon's life and a shaking of his faith that will leave readers longing for Runcie's next entry.
