The Poisoned Chalice Murder

By Diane Janes

Death is stalking Durley Dean – but could the church congregation of such a sleepy English village really include a murderer?

Tom Dod’s Aunt Hetty is worried – three sudden deaths have occurred in the village of Durley Dean. To some they seem like tragic accidents, but she isn’t so sure.

After all, all three took a stand against Reverend Pinder, the new vicar of St Agnes’, whose controversial changes have divided the congregation. But is there really a killer among the parishioners?

And when Fran leaps at the chance to spend a weekend at Aunt Hetty’s, sleuthing with Tom, could the trip prove to be a poisoned chalice?

A welcome addition to Diane Janes’ Black and Dod series of murder-mysteries, this novel is ideal for readers who like their thrillers cosy and English, in the Agatha Christie style.
