The Most Intimate Place - Rosemary Furber

Patrick Price-Johnson is on remand for the murder and intimate assault of a woman priest. His story begins with a mundane article for a local newspaper, but when his girlfriend Julia gets involved the stakes are raised. Patrick finds himself manipulated into a piece of literary detective work about the theological doctrine of midrash which will uncover a Church of England sex scandal. Or so he thinks. It is a journey that will drag him through fear, hypocrisy and despair to the darker side of love and faith and to a sad question: is unrequited love the only love that lasts?

I looked over at her lying on the bed. At the elegant way her spine curved from the dress at her waist down to the divide of her beautiful arse. I decided to kiss her again. You wont bite me now, Helen, I thought. Im going to kiss you, and you wont bite me again.
