The Silent Ones by William Brodrick

The silent ones
Always  a pleasure to read about Father Anselm Barrister turned Gilbertine monk often called back to solve crimes . Even though the crimes in this book were grim it was still a lovely gentle read lovely descriptions of monastic life. Very interesting courtroom scenes ,and the simplicity os the monastery shines through it all.  I wonder why the BBC haven’t made a series of  it spite of the Catholic ethos which is quite understated it is quintessentially British.
