The Washing Away of Wrongs, Paperback / softback Book

The Washing Away of Wrongs Paperback / softback

Part of the Max Tudor series

Paperback / softback


In this new mystery for Max Tudor, he is forced to revisit the past to solve a very recent case of murder... Max Tudor thought he'd left the world of deceit when he resigned from MI5 to become an Anglican priest.

Then his bishop asks him to return to his Oxford college, St Luke's, to investigate the death of its chaplain, and Max realizes there's no leaving the past behind.

At first, Max agrees with the official police verdict of death by natural causes.

The Rev. Ace Graybill was as harmless a man as ever lived. It's difficult to see how he managed to cross anyone capable of murder. And the suspects are all above reproach: the celebrated Principal, the cautious bursar, the wise librarian, and a raft of benign students and academics.

But someone in the college wanted the kindly chaplain dead... and looks can be very deceiving. Praise for G M Malliet'A superb novel, a wonderful read.' Louise Penny'G M Malliet has brought the village cosy into the twenty first century...

Wicked Autumn is a refreshing read for everyone who loves a really good murder.' Charles Todd'There are certain things you want in a village mystery: a pretty setting, a tasteful murder, an appealing sleuth...

Malliet delivers all that.' New York Times Book Review'For readers who relish a traditional mystery with a satiric edge, perfect for a cozy fireside read' - The Boston GlobeFrom the series named "Best Mystery of the Year" by Library Journal and The Boston Globe
