Arriving in rural Yorkshire, Ishmael and his partner Penny learn that the vicar who was to perform the ceremony has been found dead in the church, hanging from his own bell rope. With no clues, no evidence, and no known motive, many locals believe the curse is responsible. Or is someone just using it as a smokescreen for murder? With the wedding due to take place the following day, Ishmael has just a few hours to uncover the truth. But his investigations are hampered by sudden flashes of memory: memories of the time before he was human. What is it Ishmaels former self is trying to tell him?

Love the narrator! This was the best mystery in the series! I wondered in the first third of the book why the author had this eternal conflict with the inner beast. It didnt seem to fit with the story line. All the pieces fit together in a rousing end.
