Summary (From the publisher):

When Father Hobbes mysteriously dies at the high altar on Good Friday, Dr. Jonathan Hullah - whose holistic work has earned him the label "Cunning Man" (for the wizard of folk tradition) - wants to know why. The physician-cum-diagnostician's search for answers compels him to look back over his own long life. He conjures vivid memories of the dazzling intellectual high jinks and compassionate philosophies of himself and his circle, including flamboyant, mystical curate Charlie Iredale; cynical, quixotic professor Brocky Gilmartin; outrageous banker Darcy Dwyer; and jocular, muscular artist Pansy Todhunter.
