Inhaltsangabe zu „A Turbulent Priest“ von J M Gregson

After five weeks of dry weather, the fields and roads of Lancashire are suddenly flooded by heavy Bank Holiday rain. Roads are blocked, streams become impassable, and debris that has lain stagnant in the summer weeks is uprooted. Among that debris - a body. Detective Inspector Peach, with the help of Detective Sergeant Lucy Blake, must solve a case that, had it not been for the freak weather, would have lain undiscovered for years. The body is identified as Father John Bickerstaffe. But who would want to kill a man of religion who was widely respected in the local community? As DI Peach and DS Blake delve into the life of the Priest, they soon discover that he is not the only victim in this case... When the Bishop Hogan summons them to reveal shocking details of the secret life of Father Bickerstaffe, they realise that he had a terrible secret. A secret which caused not only his downfall, but also his death. Recently disgraced, Father Bickerstaffe left a wealth of potential killers in his wake. As the case unravels, and the potential suspects stretch from religion to politics, DI Peach and DS Blake must ask, how far would a parent go to protect, or to avenge, their child? 'A Turbulent Priest' is a gripping crime thriller by a master of the genre.
