There is never a dull moment in the (fictitious) little town of St. Germaine, North Carolina. In this latest installment in the Liturgical Mysteries series, a body is found in the alley behind the town beauty parlor, and a young child is kidnapped. Are these two events related? Police Chief Hayden Koning thinks so, but before he gets far in his investigations, a singer is electrocuted during a service at St. Barnabas Church. (It isn’t a Liturgical Mysteries book unless a death occurs in or near St. Barnabas.) This, the tenth book in the series, contains the same cast of characters and many of the usual elements (another new rector, conflicts over the church’s liturgy, interesting minor characters) along with a few zany new additions–a truffle hunting pig and a Christian astrologer.
