    One thought on “Evil Angels Among Them”

    1. Evil Angels Among Them (Kate Charles). A complex who-dun-it mystery novel. A bit too slow paced for my likingbut the plot was interesting and did have some twists and turns. There were a lot of characters to follow which took some of the joy in reading this. Set in England and strongly based on the Church of England did make it interesting.

    2. After pushing through some heavily detailed works of late, I turned to this randomly selected Kate Charles title from an apparent Psalms series she has devised, with a slim hope for light entertainment at little intellectual cost. Found: a delightfully spun tale of sufficient complexity told by that most elusive of writersa wordsmith with deft economy and an original line.In another's less-skilled hands the nastier characters could have fallen into buffoon caricature. Some of the tediously typic [...]

    3. This is another new mystery series to me, and I want to read at least one of two of the earlier books after finishing this one.The story takes place in a small English village, where the minister and his new wife have returned after their honeymoon. When the wife starts receiving mysterious phone calls, talking about sexual activities, her happy world begins to crumble. In the meantime, one of the town busybodies is making life miserable for new arrivals, and there are controversies going on amo [...]

    4. I wasn't sure I'd finish this book because the people of the village are so unpleasant---the newlywed wife of the rector receives smutty phone calls, a lesbian couple are very rudely shunned, the organist is reviled, all by self-righteous members of the church who consider themselves Christian. It turned out to be quite a good book though and I probably will read more by her.

    5. It's a detective story but, as the author says in her introduction, it's really more about what makes people tick. There are some twists and turns, and a few red herrings that keep you guessing. Some of the characters were a bit too black & white for my liking, but I still enjoyed the book and will be looking out for more in this series. It's good entertainment!

    6. Another in Kate Charles' Church of England mysteries. This time it is set in a small rural English community with various problems involving members of the town's parish church. The story line involves murder, rivalries between congregation members, adultry, malicious gossip, and obscene phone calls. As in the other mysteries by Charles, it is a good read with great characters.

    7. This was an interesting look into small village church life but the protagonists' innocence and naiveté were a bit unbelievable to the point of almost annoying. I won't go into detail because then this post would be a spoiler :D The who-dunnit part of the book is quite good and I'm looking forward to reading more of this author's latest works.

    8. This is one of Kate Charles's earlier novels, and it is not one of her best. The characters weren't very believable in their portrayal or motivations. Her protagonists all seemed to be a little too good, and her villians are a more like evil cardboard cutouts. It started out strong enough to make me want to finish, but I was glad when I did.Her later books are better.

    9. Another excellent mystery by Kate Charles, dealing with the inner workings of the Church of England (Anglican Church) in England. And starring charming yet "real" characters David and Lucy.

    10. I have enjoyed this series, and I appreciate what I learn about British culture and churchmanship.Not all that different in the US. Good and bad among us.

    11. The book was creepy so I returned it to the Library. I have read other books by the author and liked them.

    12. Kate Charles write ecclesiastical mysteries filled with a variety of vivid characters and stranged twists.
