'Wholesale murder by black magic...highly ingenious, wholly enjoyable.' Evening Standard 'The acknowledged queen of detective fiction' Observer
When an elderly priest is murdered, the killer searches the victim so roughly that his already ragged cassock is torn in the process. What was the killer looking for? And what had a dying woman confided to the priest on her deathbed only hours earlier?
Mark Easterbrook and his sidekick Ginger Corrigan are determined to find out. Maybe the three women who run The Pale Horse public house, and who are rumored to practice the “Dark Arts,” can provide some answers?--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition. See all Product Description

I wish there were more Ariadne Oliver books. There are many plot twists and the murderer is difficult to figure out. A great book.Published on Aug. 9 2000 by Moe811
