Murder Before Evensong by Richard Coles

The first novel in the Reverend Richard Coles’ Canon Clement Mystery series

Canon Daniel Clement is Rector of Champton.  He has been there for eight years, living at the Rectory alongside his widowed mother – opinionated, fearless, ever-so-slightly annoying Audrey – and his two dachshunds, Cosmo and Hilda.

When Daniel announces a plan to install a lavatory in church, the parish is suddenly (and unexpectedly) divided: as lines are drawn, long-buried secrets come dangerously close to destroying the apparent calm of the village.

And then Anthony Bowness – cousin to Bernard de Floures, patron of Champton – is found dead at the back of the church, stabbed in the neck with a pair of secateurs.

As the police moves in and the bodies start piling up, Daniel is the only one who can try and keep his fractured community together… and catch a killer.

Peer & Press Reviews

Murder Before Evensong has all the elements that make up a classic detective story: a pitch-perfect setting, a genuine puzzle, a gruesome murder (or more) and engaging characters.  I enjoyed it very much.

Philip Pullman

The Reverend Richard Coles gives us a serpent in England’s pastoral Eden – and whodunit fans can give praise and rejoice.

Ian Rankin

Champton joins St Mary Mead and Midsomer in the great atlas of fictional English villages where the crimes are as dastardly as the residents delightful.  Canon Daniel Clement must solve mysteries temporal and theological while surviving his parishioners tender ministries.  Delightful!  And only Richard Coles could pull this off so joyfully and with such style.

Damian Barr, writer and broadcaster
