Description

Cambridge, October 1933. Inside the old All Hallows Church on All Hallows' Eve, Doctor Adelaide Hartest witnesses the final moments of a dying stranger. Despite the dagger plunged into the stranger's chest and his last-minute confession, the death is ruled a suicide. The victim, it is revealed, is known to Scotland Yard, and Assistant Commissioner Joe Sandilands is sent up from London to investigate. Thrown into a deadly ring of cloak-and-dagger politics and high-society hedonism, Sandilands must uncover the truth before the Hellfire Club, an elite society composed of intelligentsia and aristocrats, topples the institutions and harms the people he has sworn to protect-especially one he has come to truly love.

Professional reviews

"When a fellow "of interest to the government" is stabbed in a Cambridge church pew, Detective Joe Sandilands is dispatched to the university town to root about. He discovers the beginning of Cambridge University's pre-WWII struggle with "Red sympathizers" and much else besides. Narrator Steven Crossley voices the story with skill and sympathy, if not with his usual brio. The problem may be that this twelfth book in the series lacks the energy of Cleverly's previous novels, and, therefore, so does the narrator. But he never loses the listener during the plot's twists and turns, which is to be applauded. And he shines with the many character parts, so the bland principals don't really matter.
