"Peaceful" is the most common entry in the visitors' at St. Michael and All Angels Church, where high above the nave, gilded wings outspread, a veritable choir of carved angels open their mouths in eternal song. But outside the church, in the tiny town of Walston, the atmosphere is disturbing indeed. A series of terrifying phone calls is attacking the sanity of the rector's young bride. A nosy old biddy is stirring up trouble for the London couple in Foxglove Cottage. Half the parish is singing a chorus of protest over the hiring of a professional choir - and the disbanding of the old one. The rector himself, Father Stephen Thorncroft, is compromised over the election of the new church warden that took place without his consent. And the gruesome murder of one of the town's most familiar faces has the priest looking for help from above. His prayers are answered by his old friends Lucy Kingsley and David Middleton-Brown, who soon find themselves unraveling the tangled relationships and dark motives of the villagers. As Lucy and David discover adultery, lust for power, and malicious gossip emanating from little minds, their suspicions turn to fear...fear that a killer who is no angel has a devilish plan to shed even more blood.
