Day of Vengeance: A Dorothy Martin Mystery

Jeanne M. Dams. Severn, $28.95 (224p) ISBN 978-0-7278-8397-1
In Dams’s captivating 15th Dorothy Martin mystery (after 2013’s Shadows of Death), Dorothy’s husband, retired chief constable Alan Nesbitt, is serving on the Crown Appointments Commission to select the next bishop of Sherebury Cathedral. When one of candidates, the Rev. Andrew Stephen Owen Brading, is murdered in his own church, everyone involved falls under suspicion, including Alan. An informal team gathers to clear Alan’s name by investigating each of the remaining candidates on the list. The stakes rise when a friend of the Martins goes missing after probing the cooked books of the charismatic Rev. Geoffrey Lovelace’s church. Meanwhile, the inquiry into Brading’s past opens questions as to why he was shortlisted for the mitre in the first place. Anglophiles, especially those with an ecclesiastical bent, will find much to savor. Agent: Kimberley Cameron, Kimberley Cameron Agency. (Sept.)
