Sidney Chambers,
the Vicar of Grantchester and Honorary Canon of Ely Cathedral, is a thirty-two
year old bachelor. Tall, with dark brown hair, eyes the colour of hazelnuts and
a reassuringly gentle manner, Sidney is an unconventional clergyman and can go
where the police cannot.

In The
Grantchester Mysteries
, Sidney, together with his roguish friend Inspector Horatio
‘Harry’ Keating, must enquire into the suspect suicide of a Cambridge solicitor,
a scandalous jewellery theft at a New Year’s Eve dinner party, the unexplained
death of a well-known jazz promoter and a shocking art forgery the disclosure
of which puts a close friend in danger. Sidney discovers that being a detective, like
being a clergyman, means that you are never off duty, but alongside the
mysteries he solves he manages to find time for a keen interest in cricket,
warm beer and hot jazz, and the works of Tolstoy and Shakespeare - as well as a curious
fondness for a German widow three years his junior.

With a whiff of
Agatha Christie and a touch of Midsomer Murders, The
Grantchester Mysteries
introduces a wonderful new hero into the
world of detective fiction.
