Quick Overview
The picturesque village of Mauthen Barbary offered weary Londoners a quiet retreat . . . until elderly Charles Griffin and his dog, Chloe, accidentally dug up the ancient statue of Our Lady of Promise. Overnight the little Norfolk town acquired busloads of prayerful pilgrims, chanting virgins clad in blue, a chapel lit by flickering candles, and a corpse. Someone had brutally murdered a saintly young woman at the very foot of the Virgin's shrine. It was up to inspector Ben Jurnet to solve this devilishly difficult case. There were just three clues to the killer: a dying swan, a stolen crucifix, and a gold cross clutched in the dead girl's hand.

How we describe the condition of our books

We are very proud of the condition of the books we sell (please read our testimonials to find out more!)

New: Exactly as it says.

As New: Pretty much new but shows small signs of having been read; inside it will be clean without any inscriptions or stamps; might contain a remainder mark.

Very Good: Might have some creases on the spine; no hard cracks; maybe slight forward lean and short inscription inside; perhaps very minor bumping on the corners of the book; inside clean but the page edges might be slightly yellowed.

Good: A few creases on the spine, perhaps a forward lean, bumping on corners or shelfwear; maybe an inscription inside or some shelfwear or a small tear or two on the dustjacket; inside clean but page edges might be somewhat yellowed.

Fair: In overall good condition, might have a severe forward lean to the spine, an inscription, bumping to corners; one or two folds on the covers and yellowed pages; in exceptional cases these books might contain some library stamps and stickers or have neat sticky tape which was used to fix a short, closed tear.

Poor: We rarely sell poor condition books, unless the books are in demand and difficult to find in a better condition. Poor condition books are still perfect for a good read, all pages will be intact and none threatening to fall out; most probably a reading copy only.
