Dr. James Macintosh, the Bishop of Greyle, was a mysterious man. For a long time, nobody even knew his last name . . . until his body is found emaciated and battered having been pushed face-first off the edge of a cliff.
Inspector Littlejohn faces an incredibly peculiar case. How to explain the savage murder of a gentle Bishop? Did he know too much about the secretive citizens of Cape Marvin? Or did it have something to do with the strange family he left behind in Medhope?
Above all, why was the Bishop's body so undernourished that death by violence won out by only a few days over death by starvation?
