The Body Under the Bridge by Paul McCusker
English | 2016 | Mystery/Thriller | ePUB+ | Series: (Father Gilbert Mystery Book 1) | 1.2 MB
A former Scotland Yard detective, Father Gilbert knows about death. But, as priest of a modest Anglican church in in a small Sussex town, he didn’t expect it to show up like this – first in a suicide from the church tower, and then in the discovery of a two-hundred-year-old body beneath an ancient bridge. The deaths are linked. The mummified corpse reignites a centuries-old battle between two local families – the Todds and the aristocratic Hayshams – and the search for a legendary sword and ring that may have diabolical power. Against his will, Father Gilbert is thrown into a mix of local violence and depravity, and the underlying motives of both the living and the dead.
