Publisher's Summary

When autumn storms blast Hereford, centuries-old human bones are found among the roots of a blown down tree. At the nearby Cathedral, another storm is building around a new bishop who believes that the Church must phase out irrelevant archaic practices.
Not good news for Merrily Watkins, consultant on the paranormal. Especially as she's now presented with the job at its most medieval. A rambling 12th-century house is thought to be haunted. Although its new owners don't believe in ghosts, they do believe in the need for exorcism.
Merrily's discovery of the house's links with the medieval legend of a man who resisted mortality threatens to expose the hidden history of a more modern cult and its trail of insidious abuse.

The anticipation of a new Merrily Watkins!!!

I love this series and I hope that there are many more to come and that they are all read by
Emma Powell. (Actually, all his books are well read and I wonder if the author has some say in choosing the readers). I love the characters, the descriptions of place, and of course the plots which keep one foot planted in the real world, and particularly the place of women in that world, and the other in a much scarier, darker world of fairy tales and old beliefs which the author makes all too believable.

Has to be the best one, so far!

Here I am, at the end of the presently available Audible versions of the Merrily Watkins series! I have absolutely loved the time I have spent in the company of Phil Rickman's carefully developed cast of characters,and will greatly miss them, while I wait for the next book to come along! Love Emma Powell's reading of them, and the way she manages to bring the books to life! I don't care if Franny Bliss sounds like a girl - he comes over as a perfectly believable copper, to me - and I can't wait to find out how his story develops, amongst many other of the personae! Believe me - if another becomes available I shall be among the first to pre-order it!!
