When Rosemary Sheffield suddenly loses her religious faith it is not merely a personal matter for she is the wife of a vicar. And when, on a brief holiday to think things through, she forms a sad but affectionate relationship with a young refugee from the former Yugoslavia, she ensures that the knives will be out for her husband's parish back home in Leeds. For charity is not the order of the day among the parishioners of St Saviour's.
When a body is found after a church fete it is up to DC Charlie Peace and his boss to discover whether Rosemary's spiritual crisis has led to murder, or is it more worldly concerns that lie at the root of the crime...?
