Acester (known as Ayster) is one of England’s oldest cathedrals. It is also home to a startling assortment of ghosts. They include a bishop’s skeleton, a mischievous imp, a Jacobean actor, an eighteenth-century murderer, a woman in a mirror, a legless and an eyeless ghost, a mysterious chorister, and an ugly spider. Meanwhile, alongside the ghosts, the busy life of a modern cathedral goes on, spiced by the sparrings between a rather vague Dean and a very acerbic Canon. This is a book for all who love stories of ghosts and clergy life in the Church of England.
