Not one of my favorites in this series. A rather painfully awkward new vicar mishandles a slander case. ( )

For Garney and Cynthia who are well acquainted with Stoke Druid
First words
When murder occurs in an English village, which it does far more frequently than is known by those who have not troubled to study the history of crime, people usually feel the shock worse because of the village's intense respectability.

Book description
Terror is quietly taking over in the little English village of Stroke Druid...when the majestic figure of old H.M. rolled into the midst of things. And, on the edge of town, the legendary figure of the Mocking Widow, that fantastic stone ruin, gave its name to a malicious killer.

One woman is already dead, but no one talked of it. The police ignored the obvious. The young vicar touched off a powder keg of gossip. The Bishop himself joined forces (quite literally) in the mad battle of the mud-balls.

Never in his flamboyant career has the Old Maestro pulled off a neater coup!
