Max Tudor has adapted well to his post as vicar of St. Edwold’s in the idyllic village of Nether Monkslip. The quiet village seems the perfect home for Max, who has fled a harrowing past as an MI5 agent. But this new-found serenity is quickly shattered when the highly vocal and unpopular president of the Women’s Institute turns up dead at the Harvest Fayre. The death looks like an accident, but Max’s training as a former agent kicks in, and before long he suspects foul play. As the investigation unfolds, Max becomes more intricately involved. Memories he’d rather not revisit are stirred, evoking the demons from the past which led him to Nether Monkslip.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A superb novel! Filled with humor and insight, G. M. Malliet creates a fabulous setting in Nether Monkslip and a great series hero in Father Max Tudor. Rarely have I read descriptions that have left me gasping, in both their hilarity and their painful truth. A wonderful read.”

    Louise Penny, Agatha Award–winning author of the Armand Gamache mysteries

  • “Agatha Award–winning author Malliet debuts a superb new series…You’ll marvel at the author’s low-key humor and crystal-clear depictions of small-town life…Malliet, like Louise Penny, brings a contemporary freshness to the traditional mystery.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Malliet has mastered the delights of the cozy mystery so completely that she seems to be channeling Agatha Christie…[with] ironic humor that contribute[s] a little spice to the village charm, making the story even more delicious. Religion, espionage, tea, and crumpets: a winning menu.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “There are certain things you really want to have in a village mystery: a pretty setting, a tasteful murder, an appealing sleuth, a festive event, some eccentric locals, a dash of humor, and maybe a nice map. G. M. Malliet delivers all that in Wicked Autumn.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • A 2011 Boston Globe Book of the Year for Mysteries

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Jocelyn Harvey | 2/12/2014

    " I liked this book, just not overwhelmingly. It's an interesting take on the English village "cozy" and opens well, but overall I couldn't take a great interest in the village characters. I'll read the next book in the series, but without great enthusiasm. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kathy | 2/11/2014

    " I liked it for a first book in a series; however, the ending where they went into detail about solving the murder was too long. I look forward to reading the next book, A Fatal Winter, which will be available in the fall. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by MaryAnn | 2/7/2014

    " Rarely do I find a British mystery that I don't like, but this one was it! Billed as a cozy mystery, the writing seems contrived and too cute, the characters very stereotypical. Maybe some other time--or not. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Debra | 1/17/2014

    " Good but not as good as its press. Something just seemed a little off. "
