Inhaltsangabe: The Lord Chancellor woke his wife at four o'clock one morning in 1921 to examine a letter and the photograph of a smudged signature taken from the register of the Bull Hotel in Peterborough. Lady Birkenhead agreed that they were by the same hand. The signature belonged to a dignified sixty year old clergyman who had risen from a childhood of poverty, running wild in the Devonport docklands, to become Precentor of Lincoln Cathedral and Archdeacon of Stow. It was in the rural parish of Kirkstead that Archdeacon Wakeford, the fiery evangelist from Liverpool, first crossed swords with the Revernd C.T.Moore, a freemason and sporting country gentleman of secular disposition, but it was the upright Wakeford who stood accused under the Clergy Discipline Act. The case filled the newspapers for weeks and occupied such renowned legal minds as those of Hogg and Carson before a packed Chamber of the Privy Council, involving the Archdeacon with horse dealers, lurking policemen and the "Girl in the Cathedral". It became the cause celebre of 1921. John Treherne is also the author of "The Galapagos Affair", "The Strange History of Bonnie and Clyde", "The Trap" and "Mangrove Chronicle".
