A Drink of Deadly Wine (originally published in 1991) is the first novel in Kate Charles's acclaimed ';Book of Psalms' mystery series set in the Church of England. Gabriel Neville is the model of a modern minister: A scholarly, inspiring speaker, a devoted husband and fatherand it doesn't hurt that he's as beautiful as a gilded angel. More than one member of his swanky London parish has suggested that Father Gabriel would do credit to an archbishop's robes. But all those hopes will blow away like smoke if one unknown blackmailer has his way. In desperation, Neville calls on a long-lost lover, the one person he feels he can trust with his secrets. This may not, it turns out, have been the cleverest idea.
