Sir Oliver, on the heels of one fraud case, is given another. A minister is accused of defrauding his parishioners of their donations, which he doesn't use for the charitable purposes he claims he will. Hester attends the church, just once, with Scuff. She's impressed with the preacher, but feels high pressure from his assistant, and tells Monk so. She also asks her accountant at the clinic to look at the public records to see if he can see discrepancies. He does. She and Monk don't tell Oliver, since it's his job to be impartial. A surprising end to the trial results in an arrest of Oliver for not being impartial. What's gone wrong? His trial is even more dramatic than the first one over which he presided. The second half of the book is much stronger than the first. Overall, I learned a great deal more about Oliver and his feelings than in most books in this series, and I appreciated that.
