Hardback. Reprint. Few people today can remember John Wakeford, the handsome, upright Precentor of Lincoln Cathedral, but in 1920 his name was at the centre of scandal and intrigue - in an age of post-Victorian hypocrisy, he stood accused of immorality. It was alleged that he had slept with a woman not once but on two occasions at the Bull Hotel in Peterborough while supposedly on Church business. There was only one witness who could clear his name - the elusive 'Girl in the Cathedral' - but she failed to come forward and testify. Who was this mysterious woman and why did she fail to save the archdeacon from his tragic descent into hell..? Illus. + Bibliog. 192pp. 8vo. h/back. F. in Nr. F. dw. which has tiny nick to top edge of fr. cover.
