The Resurrection of the Body by Maggie Hamand
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


While conducting the Good Friday service, vicar Richard Page is horrified when a man staggers in, bleeding from wounds inflicted during a vicious knife attack. There is no identification on him; he later dies, and no one comes forward to claim the body. Even more bizarrely, his corpse disappears from the morgue, leaving the police baffled and suspicious. The vicar is drawn into a bruising quest to uncover this man's identity and explain the unexplainable. His obsession will bring him into conflict with the police, his superiors, his congregation and even his wife. "The Resurrection of the Body" is a thought-provoking work which explores love, religion and madness within an eerie and unsettling mystery.
