An Unholy CommunionDiane Morrison, via The Good Book Stall
This is the third novel in the Monastery Murders series, the first two of which I have not read. It stands well on its own, though it would still be preferable to read them in order for a better understanding of how the characters got to where they are now. The suspense builds well as we follow engaged clerics Andrew and Felicity, still reeling from the violent death of a colleague, shepherding a group of young people on a pilgrimage through sights of historical and spiritual significance in Wales, all the while dogged by odd, unexplainable and increasingly menacing occurrences. Since almost all the characters are previously unknown to each other, everyone can - and does - seem suspicious at one time or another. It is perhaps inevitable that some of the teenagers are somewhat stereotypical and I found the continual swapping of viewpoint distracting, but these are minor quibbles in a well-written and solidly grounded mystery. The author has managed to make her main protagonists both likeable and realistic, which is no mean feat. I shall certainly be looking out for other Monastery Murders.

Father Antony recognizes the corpse as Hwyl Pendry, a former student of his, who has been serving as Deliverance Minister in the diocese of St. David's. The police ignore the strange emblem of a double-headed snake curling across a triangle Hwyl clutched in his hand and label the death a suicide. But Hwyl's widow is convinced otherwise, and pleads for Felicity and Antony to help her uncover the truth.
Matters grow murkier as Felicity and Antony, leading a youth pilgrimage through rural Wales, encounter the same sinister symbol of a double-headed snake on their travels. Lurking figures follow the group. Then one of the young people is found face-down in a well...
