When the Catholic Church decides to close the tiny convent of St. Gudrun and dispose of its assets, it unwittingly brings tragedy to the peaceful village of Redston. For Redston’s greatest asset is the Monstrance created by legendary goldsmith, Teodoro Borzoletti, in the 18thCentury, and now believed to be worth millions to a collector.
In Redston Hall, Austin Reeves-Mercer, a noted Protestant, struggles to keep his ancestral home solvent, but an ancient family feud brings the actual ownership of the Monstrance into question and tensions mount.
The revelation that the Monstrance is a fake is a shock to all concerned, and when deceit, blackmail and death pay unexpected visits to Redston Hall, only one solution is possible...murder.
Written by the author of Prescription for Murder, At the Sign of ‘The Crippled Harlequin’, And Evermore Shall Be So and more and based on a real life event, The Borzoletti Monstrance will have audiences guessing until the very end.
