Publisher's Summary

Late December and the river is rising. The Herefordshire village of Ledwardine has not been flooded in living memory but in these days of climate change nothing is certain. Merrily Watkins, parish priest and diocesan exorcist, has learned that one of the incomers is an author who is a figure of hate for religious fundamentalists. Meanwhile, the Hereford police make a gruesome discovery linked to the Dinedor Serpent, a unique prehistoric monument. In Ledwardine itself, buried Bronze Age stones have been unearthed. Overnight, the village is isolated in the floods, cut off with a killer inside. As the waters rise, shocking savagery paralyses an ancient community untangling its own history against the swirling uncertainty of the future.

Thoroughly enjoyable

I love the Merrily Watkins series by Phil Rickman and I've been waiting for ages for another one to be
added to the Audible list. It was not a disappointment. I was back in Ledwardine again. The characters are
well drawn, the description of place vivid, and the plot is always interesting. As well, the series is
beautifully read by Emma Powell.

just brilliant

the merrily watkins series by phil rickman are books that you want to go back to time and time again. The characters become like friends and are so well drawn you end up wanting to visit the ficticious village of ledwardine to be a part of each story. Each book in the series is a stand alone novel but to see the characters go through their individual changes is what makes this series so special especially as in to dream of the dead we get to hear a short segment of lol robinson in concert a nice touch as phil rickman has brought this character to life with two very wonderful albums using haunting lyrics taken directly from the stories.
Emma powell is brilliant as the narrator and i would recommend them to anyone. so come on audible lets have the rest of the series
