Sidney Chambers, the Vicar of Grantchester, is a 32-year-old bachelor. Tall, with eyes the colour of hazelnuts, he is both an unconventional clergyman and a reluctant detective. Working in association with his friend, Inspector Geordie Keating, Sidney is able to go where the police cannot, eliciting surprise revelations and confessions from his parishioners; whether it involves the apparent suicide of a local solicitor, a scandalous jewellery theft at a New Year's Eve dinner party, or the unexplained death of a jazz promoter's daughter.

Alongside his inquiries, Sidney also manages to find time to enjoy cricket, warm beer, hot jazz, and the company of an attractive, lively young woman called Amanda.

    " It's a typical British mystery. I liked the main character Sidney. "

    " A gentle, cozy mystery set in a 'typical' English village. It's actually 6 separate mysteries that all intertwine together. In some ways it reminds me of a very high class version of the Scottish policeman, Hamish with a sprinkling of Father Brown and Miss Marple. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the 1950's. "

    " This was an excellent choice for our August book group. Very much enjoyed the format of six different stories about the same major characters within one book. Each one could be read in a sitting and had good stopping points. I just hope he gets around to writing another book about Canon Chambers. A terrific cozy mystery similar to a Christie novel. "

    " The first in a new series of six starting around 1953. The book was a series of adventures in which we were introduced to Sydney Chambers and his friends and family. Warming up to him and looking forward to his next set of adventures "
