is mystery set amid English church politics.
Its protagonist is the head of the Dilapidations Board at Canterbury,
who returns from a holiday to find that a colleague from his war
years has died after trying to get in touch. This sets him off on an
investigation which will uncover secrets concealed for fifty years
and threaten the reputation of the Church. Dark Provenance
builds up a full head of steam, but Anthony does an excellent job
with his central character and his plot is not too implausible — and
I found the diocesan politics as interesting as the actual mystery.
