A Candle for Lucifer depicts how to outward appearances good and evil are easily confused, especially under the mask of the religious Establishment.
To those within the Church, Revd Canon Wilkes appears to be a good and devout man, although to a group of drinkers in the local pub he is quickly identified as pure evil. From many years working both as a parish priest and prison chaplain, the author presents an assortment of characters from the very disreputable to the very good. When evil disguises itself as Light, the story reveals how in a world of opposites nothing is as it appears.
From the Latin 'lux' meaning Light, Lucifer is another name for the planet Venus when it rises as the morning star.
