Who's killing clergymen in Britain? Amateur sleuth Dorothy Martin, the retired American schoolteacher who calls the cathedral town of Sherebury home, would like to know; and her husband, retired Chief Constable Alan Nesbitt, would also like to know, since he could be one of the murder suspects. It seems obvious that the murders are connected to the victims' names being on the short list for appointment to the bishopric of Sherebury Cathedral (Alan is involved with the selection process), but could there be something else at play? Dams sticks to the venerable Agatha Christie formula—murders, a flock of suspects, an engaging village setting—but there's nothing wrong with sticking to a formula when the formula produces results as splendid as these. With the Martin series and the unrelated-but-similar Hilda Johansson series, Dams has become one of the top practitioners of amateur-sleuth cozies. Longtime fans will already be lining up for this new title, and first-time readers will almost certainly want to start playing catch-up with the author's earlier books.

In Dams's captivating 15th Dorothy Martin mystery (after 2013's Shadows of Death), Dorothy's husband, retired chief constable Alan Nesbitt, is serving on the Crown Appointments Commission to select the next bishop of Sherebury Cathedral. When one of candidates, the Rev. Andrew Stephen Owen Brading, is murdered in his own church, everyone involved falls under suspicion, including Alan. An informal team gathers to clear Alan's name by investigating each of the remaining candidates on the list. The stakes rise when a friend of the Martins goes missing after probing the cooked books of the charismatic Rev. Geoffrey Lovelace's church. Meanwhile, the inquiry into Brading's past opens questions as to why he was shortlisted for the mitre in the first place. Anglophiles, especially those with an ecclesiastical bent, will find much to savor. Agent: Kimberley Cameron, Kimberley Cameron Agency. (Sept.)
