Here is the second part of Death in Ecstasy. Obviously the murder has happened and Alleyn is in the middle of his interviews with all of the attendees. We begin with the timid Miss Wade, who is clearly infatuated with Father Garnette. We are looking at the possibility of cyanide in the cup and whether there was any noticeable odor. This produces a lot of confusing information.

Nicole (nicolevickers) | 1814 comments Father Garnette, to me, has the air of charlatan about him....

Anastasia (anastasiaruff) | 241 comments The Sacred flame has all the markings of a con/sect. Sounds like an elaborate production designed to con people out of their money by getting them hooked on drugs.

Well, you all seem to have grasped the business of the church. I read the book off of a kindle, and that edition has a forward by Marsh explaining her concept of the church and that it is not to be taken as a particular church. Yeah, right!

Anastasia (anastasiaruff) | 241 comments There does seem to be a lot of focus on the odour. Unfortunately with the incense being almond scented it is difficult. Apparently not everyone may smell cyanide- I learnt this from the CSI shows, so not sure if it is true or not.

That is interesting, Anastasia. I did not know about that cyanide sensitivity business.
