Celestial Cardplay by David Bird is the tenth collection in the series of the Bridge-crazy monk of St. Titus. The pompous and self-important Abbot hosts a tricky visit from Monsignor Vecchio, a representative of the Vatican authorities. Everything must be done to ensure that the visitor, a very moderate bridge player, finishes well in the monastery duplicate. In another story, the Abbot visits the Convent of St Hilda’s and is not overjoyed to be put in partnership with the 80-year-old Mother of Discipline. Regular followers of David Bird’s work will know what to expect – a first-rate mixture of excellent bridge, entertaining characters and sparkling dialogue.
Paperback. 128 pages.
