Synopsis

When a busload of passengers is stranded by a blizzard in uptown Cooks Creek, they find their way to an old grotto in the woods, now St John’s Vicarage, where Father John Cedric provides them lodging for the night. Unfortunately, she soon realizes that among her guests is likely the serial killer known as “Just John” whose victims are all named John! This is bad news for many of the guests and residents of the vicarage are named John! Before the night is over, the killer strikes! Which person from the bus could be Just John? The college professor? The newspaper columnist? The handywoman? Providing laughs as well as suspense, Just John is a light hearted mystery comedy that reveals the very human side of priests as they attempt to stay one step ahead of a killer.
