Review: Sidney Chambers & the Dangers of Temptation by James Runcie

The fifth in James Runcie's popular Grantchester-based crime series, Sidney Chambers and the Dangers of Temptation has been receiving great reviews: -

The Times - 2nd July 2016

With the advantage of being the son of an Archbishop of Canterbury, James Runcie has created, in Sidney Chambers, a beguiling priest whose ecclesiastical calling in Grantchester seems to include frequent forays into amateur detection, helping to solve crimes from murders to petty thefts. As with his predecessor, GK Chesterton's Father Brown, there is often a moral message in his investigations and conclusions. The Dangers of Temptation - which contains six stories - is the fifth in the Grantchester Mysteries, taking Chambers into the late 1960s, and even to a Pink Floyd concert. Beautifully written, immaculate in its descriptions of bygone England and affectionate, but not soppy, to its characters.
