The respectable Rev. Archery starts poking about in musty police files after his son selects the daughter of an ax murderer as a fiancee. The Reverend is worried, you know, heredity and that sort of thing. Could there possibly have been a mistake? Well there was, but it's not exactly the thing the Reverend opted for. A five-year-old witness, an insane neighbor and a poetic epitaph on a forgotten tombstone offer clues. But it's far-fetched even for the ladies who will probably be somewhat shocked by the Reverend's mid-stream affair. (Kirkus Reviews)
The Reverend Henry Archery has a problem. His son wants to marry the lovely, clever daughter of a man hanged sixteen years ago for a brutal axe-killing. So he decides that he must try and clear the dead criminal's name. The girl's mother has always maintained, in the teeth of the police's evidence, that her daughter's father was no murderer. And there are certain areas of doubt - more than one person had stood to gain by the victim's death, for instance. So Archery starts digging. Soon, he unearths some disturbing fragments of previously buried information.... 'Consistently readable with a nice twist at the end' DAILY MAIL
