This is a mystery novel set in England. The subject matter is a little different than your average detective novel...it focuses on a set of murders set around a role-playing game. People are dying and the subtle clues point to a killer involved in a D&D-like fantasy game. The book is a good read because the characters are well-fleshed out and there is more going on than just the mystery at hand. A good series of detective fiction.

Publisher's Weekly states this is a "puzzler with a cliffhanging ending." While Kirkus Reviews says, "Butler improves with each outing." This one includes: a haunted house with a history of violent death over the centuries, and a complex web of relationships, interlocking and interacting in a way which gets people caught up and destroyed... as they play into a game of a very clever killer. Booklist says," Butler has a light touch of a master and a beguilling soul in the somberly monikered Coffin."
