‘Daffodils freeze and shrubs cry in Stormhaven. They call it ‘The Beast from the East’ and the temperature’s unholy; it crucifies all with cruel nails of ice; a Siberian chill piercing their bones. And there will be a further killing tonight – human, not plant; boy, not man.’

So begins another case for Abbot Peter and D.I. Tamsin Shah, with the discovery of a young man’s body at the seaside beauty spot of Splash Point. He drowns beneath a cold, uncaring moon; and as P.C. Banville observes, it proves a ‘hungry death’, not be sated by one unfortunate corpse. There must, and will, be more.

The investigation will lead the Abbot and Shah into deep but different danger. And it’s not just the killer they need worry about.

Pray for the coming of spring.

‘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
