In A Fatal Winter, Max Tudor, an Anglican priest, former MI5 agent, and village heartthrob, investigates two deaths at Chedrow Castle. But his growing attraction to Awena Owen complicates his case, as does the recent arrival at Chedrow Castle of a raucous group of long-lost, greedy relatives, any one of whom has a motive for murder. With a cozy setting, intricate puzzles, and a handsome (non-celibate) priest doing the sleuthing, the books in this series are destined to become instant classics in the mystery world.

Listener Opinions

    " Fr. Max Tudor, ex-MI-5, now C of E priest, is drawn into the murderous doings at Castle Chedrow. Delightful cozy read. "

    " The English whodunit is alive and well! Malliet here creates a variation of the locked room mystery with the attendant cast of idiosyncratic characters. It is a novel of manners as much as of mystery, though one has to believe the author's tongue is occasionally touching her cheek. As these types of books tend, it starts a bit slowly, with a somewhat confusing cast of characters, but one is drawn into the story in such a way that the events and conversations become interesting in themselves as well as devices moving the plot forward. "

    " Malliet's writing is very descriptive. I'd love to move to Nether Monkslip! But the pace is waaaaaaay toooooooo sloooooow. Too much chit-chat. I kept reading to the end but I wanted to give it a good shake and some editing. "

    " Twists & turns "

    " Classic "locked room" mystery! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chi Dubinski | 10/6/2013

    " Wonderful mystery in the manner of Agatha Christie. Father Max Tudor is called in to help investigate a murder and an apparent natural death at the local castle. One of the unpleasant relatives hoping to inherit or perhaps the competent and loyal staff? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 8/27/2013

    " Loved Wicked Autumn and am thus far enjoying the first few chapters of her new book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 6/19/2013

    " This was a very enjoyable read. I read the first of this series. The character of Father Max Tudor was an interesting twist on the village vicar as detective. I thought there were too many holes in the plot to give it 5 stars, but I will definitely be reading the next in this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patricia | 3/16/2013

    " Suffered from a lack of editing. Very flaccid in the middle, careens towards doting on her hero Tudor in a nauseating sort of way. Disappointing after the last one. Hoping the love interest gets killed off. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lawrence | 2/26/2013

    " A wonderful mystery in the Max Tudor series and a perfect castle as a setting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 11/5/2012

    " Yummy Cozy mystery for a cold winter night. Max Tudor is a keeper. "
