"Our favorite clerical detective is back with four longer mysteries in which Canon Sidney Chambers attempts to stop a serial killer with a grievance against the clergy; investigates the disappearance of a famous painting after a distracting display of nudity by a French girl in an art gallery; uncovers the fact that an "accidental" drowning on a film shoot may have been something more sinister; and discovers the reasons behind the theft of a baby from a hospital just before Christmas 1963. In the meantime, Sidney wrestles with the problem of evil, attempts to fulfill the demands of his faithful Labrador, Dickens, and contemplates, as always, the nature of love"--

I really enjoy these English mysteries, after watching the series on PBS for three seasons. In this one, Sydney is married , so his life is quite different from the previous books and the TV series. I have been reading the series whenever available but would be better if read in sequence.
I did notice in one of the synopsis that the name of his detective friend has changed so presumably Sydney has moved onward and upward.
