Publisher's Summary

It is 1970. David Byfield, a widowed parish priest with a dark past, brings home a new wife to Roth. Soon the murders and blasphemies begin. But does the responsibility lie in the present or the past? And can Byfield, a prisoner of his own passion, break through to the truth before the final tragedy destroys what he most cherishes?

The Judgement of Strangers

This is an interesting novel, in that it explores some dark themes while keeping a rather spritely pace and worldview.

Terrible sound editing

Loved the story but it was hard to take the abrupt changes in volume and the obviously sloppy editing.

Compelling story

This is the second part of Andrew Taylor's trilogy located around a village called Roth and spanning over 40 years in time. Although this part stands alone as an excellent and compelling story I think you'd get more out of it if you'd heard 'The Office of the Dead' first as it sets the scene for the 'The Judgement of Strangers' and, in the latter, there are oblique references to the past that will be much clearer if you know the back story.
