Format: Hardcover
Ben Jurnet feels it isn't really his job to investigate blasphemous graffiti in Angleby Cathedral but that is what he has been asked to do. But when an apparently ritual murder of a choir boy leads to a political demonstration getting out of hand he finds himself in the middle of something much more serious. Political and racial tensions in the city are coming to a head and are mirroring events which took place nearly one thousand years ago when the murder of little St Ulf polarised feelings. To add to the tensions the grave of little St Ulf inside the cathedral is being excavated by a team of archaeologists.

I found this an interesting and well written mystery and in my opinion S T Haymon is a much underrated author. Ritual Murder is a mystery in the classic mould with an interesting and likeable detective with an assistant who has no qualms about telling his superior if he thinks he's making a mistake. The background is interesting to anyone who knows Norwich on which the fictitious city of Angleby is based.

I particularly liked the characterisation in this book - the flamboyant archaeologist , Professor Mallory Pargeter and his assistants; the Rabbi who is instructing Ben Jurnet in the Jewish faith so that his girlfriend Miriam can be persuaded to marry him; the marvellously urbane superintendent who is Ben Jurnet's boss.

The plot too is well drawn with many twists and turns and a nail biting finale. If you like your mystery novels in the classic mould without too much on the page violence and an interesting background then give this series a try. They can be read in any order.
