Received from a friend
Having spent almost three years in the idyllic village of Nether Monkslip, Max Tudor is well acclimated to his post as vicar at the church of St. Edwold's. This quaint town seems to be the perfect new home for Max, who has fled a harrowing past serving in the British counter-intelligence agency, the MI5. Now he has found a measure of peace among urban escapees and yoga practitioners, artists and New Agers. But this serenity is quickly shattered when the highly vocal and unpopular president of the Women's Institute turns up dead at the Harvest Fayre. The death looks like an accident, but Max's training as a former agent kicks in, and before long he suspects foul play.

Max has ministered to the community long enough to be familiar with alliances and animosities among the residents, but this tragedy confounds him. It is impossible to believe anyone in his lovely hamlet capable of the crime, and yet given the victim, he must acknowledge that almost everyone in town had probably fantasized about the poor woman's death. As Max becomes more intricately involved, the investigation stirs up memories he'd rather not revisit; the demons from his past which led him to Nether Monkslip and the reason why he is so heavily invested in keeping it from harm.

Agatha-award winning author G.M. Malliet first won over the mystery community with her St. Just trilogy, prompting critics to compare her to Golden Age greats like Agatha Christie and Dorothy Sayers. This new series, beginning with Wicked Autumn, confirms such praise, serving up the perfect English village deliciously skewered in a brilliantly modern version of the traditional drawing room mystery.

This was great. I really like the detective, Max Tudor, a former MI5 agent who's now a priest in the small village of Nether Monkslip. Talk about a career change! It was interesting to see his occasional ongoing struggles adjusting to his new life and role.

The characters were quite well-developed, and this book was certainly one of those cases where the murder victim was one of the most annoying people on the planet. She was truly obnoxious. Only a good writer can make the reader feel some amount of sadness at her demise.

Somewhere along the way (I go to sooo many library sales) I've ended up with a copy of the next installment in the series, A Fatal Winter, so I look forward to that one.

Thanks again, josierivers!

Not on anyone's wishlist so will be wild released.
