A novella panning religious and political hypocrisy. The naughty Abbey of Crewe is up to their neck in Watergate activities that ultimately evolve into scandal. Its all here: eavesdropping, electronic surveillance, election rigging, breaking and entering, blackmail, a tad of gluttony, and (lest I forget) a wee element of ecclesiastical fornication. Or, as we hear in the musical Chicago, everything that makes life worth living.
