The Body Under the BridgeBook - 2015
A former Scotland Yard detective, Father Gilbert knows about death. But, now a priest of a modest Anglican church in the small town of Stonebridge, he didn't expect it to show up like this--in the suicide of a man who threw himself off the church tower, and in the discovery of a two-hundred-year-old body beneath an ancient bridge. The deaths are linked. The mummified corpse under the bridge, a murder victim, reignites a centuries-old battle between two local families--the Todds and the aristocratic Hayshams. When Lord Haysham is murdered, an entire history of violence and depravity begins to emerge, interweaving the history of several local families with a secret occult society that engages in Black Masses.
