Miss Gomez and the Brethren
by William Trevor
Miss Gomez is convinced she has a mission in life: to prevent a sex crime she feels sure is soon to be committed among the last inhabitants of Crow Street, a community isolated by extensive redevelopment. The residents remain sceptical until the daughter of a publican goes missing.
Beryl Tuke, whiling time away in the Thistle Arms with gin and cheap romances, and Alban Roche at Bassett's Petstore are among the street's dream-ridden survivors. A new arrival, Miss Gomez, lives for her postal correspondence with the Church of the Brethren of the Way in Jamaica. No one will believe Miss Gomez when she announces her revelation of a hideous sex crime soon to be committed in Crow Street. Until Prudence Tuke disappears, the police arrive, and the newspapers herald a 'Sex Crime Prophecy'...
