Sinful Stones, Peter Dickinson Paperback.
Scotland Yard detective James Pibble travels to a remote Scottish island to free an old man from a dangerous cult of self-proclaimed saints and saviors in this mystery by CWA Gold Dagger winner Peter Dickinson

Ninety-two-year-old Sir Francis Francis summons James Pibble to an isolated island in the Hebrides to find out who pilfered the memoirs he was in the process of writing. The Nobel Prize?winning scientist, who was also the employer of Pibble?s long-dead father, was one of the builders of the first atom bomb. Is Francis senile? Paranoid? Was the manuscript really stolen? What?s the real reason he sent for Pibble?

The bizarre millenarian sect inhabiting the island offers no answers, and this seemingly virtuous community is starting to feel anything but. Consigned to a room that?s more like a cell, Pibble tries to untangle mysteries both ancient and modern while searching for the missing pieces of his father?s life?and death. But there?s no escape from this increasingly menacing religious sect that is hell-bent on preventing Francis from returning to the evils of Babylon. It?s up to Pibble to seek out the truth and find his own salvation before the walls of Jericho come tumbling down forever.
