Publisher Description

The day after a Gothic door is returned to its original place in the Mottisham village church, two men are found dead. The Welsh villagers, closed and suspicious of outsiders, believe their deaths were not accidental, but part of an ancient legend that told of an unrepentant monk who tried to enter to the church by grasping the door's iron knocker.

    " A little predictable. I guessed "who done it" near the beginning, but didn't want to be right because it seemed to easy. However, I never guessed "why" they did it though until it was revealed. "
