Being single, ordained and in sole charge of a parish can often be lonely, as Revd. Wendy Morris knows all too well. It’s a situation not helped by having an egotistical and ambitious archdeacon, whose interference fuels rather than quells the criticism and conflict Wendy deals with as rector of St. Olaf’s.
Following the resignation of her crabby, disgruntled organist, Wendy appoints a former RUC officer to succeed him. Things further look up with the arrival of a new clerical neighbour and his family.
A new era of cooperation begins…and rapidly falls apart as a story of revenge and murder unfolds.
Featuring characters who will be familiar to readers of Ted Woods’ first novel Bishop, Priest is a stand-alone murder mystery set in the fictitious Church of Ireland diocese of Daneford.
