1st ed. Fine in dust jacket. Humorous. SIGNED COPY. Westonbury Cathedral has been dominated by a clique of High-Church gays, so when Norman Cooper, an austere, intolerant evangelist is appointed dean, there is shock, outrage and fear. David Elworthy, the gentile and politically innocent new bishop, is distraught at the prospect of warfare between the factions and cries on the shoulder of his old friend, the redoubable Baroness Troutbeck, who forces her unofficial troubleshooter, Robert Amiss, to move into the bishop's palace. Soon there is a clerical corpse in the cathedral. N° de ref. de la librería 014704
Sinopsis: MysteryLarge Print EditionStrapped for cash, Robert Amiss lets the Baroness Jack Troutbeck persuade him to take a job with her friend Canon Flubert. Too late, Amiss realizes that hes stumbled into a maelstrom of scandal. The church is in an uproar over the appointment of the new dean, Norm Cooper, a fundamentalist with a fanatical wife. Cooper spells doom for the left of centers who have ruled the church for decades. So when the dean turns up dead, theres no shortage of suspects. Amiss took the job against his better judgment never suspecting that it would lead him into countless teeth-grinding adventures on a search for a killer.
Críticas: Baroness Troutbeck--"Jack" to her friends--is the hard-drinking, hard-living lady of "a certain age" who stars in Ruth Dudley Edward's series of comic mysteries. In Murder in a Cathedral, the seventh installment, Jack persuades her impecunious friend Robert Amiss to take a job with her pal Canon Flubert, inadvertently sending him into a firestorm of ecclesiastical scandal: in a church run by gay priests, witches, and New Age enthusiasts, the appointment of a fundamentalist dean is anathema. When the dean turns up dead, everyone's a suspect. Bad enough that Amiss has to cope with the scandal, but soon he also has the Baroness on his hands in a madcap search for the Cathedral killer.
