Is it Stormhaven’s best kept secret?

The Community of the Holy Fire is a convent by the sea with a leader who has plans. Abbess Hildegard wishes to turn the community into a beacon of ‘Greenness’ – a prophetic call to the world in the face of terrifying climate change.

‘Green is not a hobby for fanatics,’ she says. ‘It is the warp and weft of all that is!’

But time and tide wait for no one, and on the night of the Great Bonfire, the abbess is killed in a manner no one deserves.

It is another case for D.I. Shah and Abbot Peter, as they attempt to find the murderer among the saints by the sea. Who could hate her so much – and why?

‘Let justice roll!’ said the prophet Amos but the forces against it are strong and neither Shah nor the abbot will ever forget the Community of the Holy Fire, which some call, ‘an inconvenient convent’.

Praise for the Abbott Peter Mysteries.

‘To a long list of much-loved detective pairings, which includes Holmes and Watson, Poirot and Hastings, and Morse and Lewis, we must now add Abbot Peter and Tamsin Shah.’
~ Church Times

‘Abbot Peter is a true original.’
~ Daily Mail

‘Highly original ... very different from most detective stories.’
~ Clerical Detectives

‘Parke evokes the creepiness of the setting marvellously. He has a stunning ear for the way people actually speak.’
~ Fiona Hook, Church Times

Missing Time by Budd Hopkins – Since World War II, tens of thousands of reports of unidentified flying objects have been gathered, officially and unofficially, by the United States Air Force and myriad other governmental and civilian investigative organizations around the world.1 Like Astronaut McDivitt’s “cylinder with antennas,” these objects are often described as being mechanically structured, metallic, and very frequently as behaving as if they were under intelligent control. The thousands of similar, enigmatic reports from across the world mean that no matter what realities may lie behind it, the UFO phenomenon exists as an undeniable fact of life. Read here
