Ted Drury is a church restoration expert like his father, and his father before him. From his warehouse workshop in Chesterfield, he and his devoted team breathe new life into ancient, sacred and deteriorating buildings. Answering a distress call from a church warden in Kent to tackle a death watch beetle infestation, the team pitch up to save the local village pub and confront terrorism with food additives, campanology, a rare North African desert flower and bespoke chocolate.
Uneven Song is a modern tale with modest diversions and high drama.
This novel is the first of a trilogy. Song to the Evening Star sees Ted and his team facing European Far Right populists in Venice. Even In All takes the team back to Chesterfield and Mansfield to encounter a dose of modern day slavery and a radical new approach to embroidery.
