Description

Littlejohn is summoned back to the Isle of Man when a reverend confesses to murder...The curraghs in the Isle of Man are, as a rule, eerily silent after dark, but one black night in April the silence is shattered by a loud explosion followed by violent ringing of the church bell. The Vicar, Sullivan Lee, is discovered praying beside the murdered body of Sir Martin Skollick, the squire of Myrescogh a sporting gun, with both barrels fired, lies nearby. The case seems open and shut, but Littlejohn wades through the murdered man's past misdeeds, his enemies, and his lovers... and all was not as it seemed when the church bell tolled across the curraghs that fateful night.
