An MI5 agent attempts to flee his violent past, becoming the vicar of St. Edwold’s in the idyllic village of Nether Monkslip, near England’s South West coast. But murder seems to dog the handsome priest wherever he goes in this new traditional mystery series by two-time Anthony nominee and Agatha Award-winning author G.M. Malliet. The series begins with Agatha and Dilys-nominated WICKED AUTUMN (2011); the second book in the series, A FATAL WINTER (2012), was nominated for an Agatha Award. Publishers Weekly said in its starred review of A FATAL WINTER: “Agatha Christie fans will relish Malliet’s delicious second Max Tudor novel.” Both Max Tudor books were Library Journal picks for best mysteries of 2011 and 2012.
