Publisher's Summary

A paradise parish of cobbled streets and timber-framed houses, and a huge, haunted vicarage were not what the Revd Merrily Watkins ever had in mind. Nor had she wanted to walk into a local dispute over a play about a curious 17th century cleric accused of witchcraft, a story that certain old-established families would rather remained in obscurity. But this is Ledwardine, steeped in cider and secrets. And also as Merrily and her teenage daughter, Jane, discover, a village where horrific murder is a tradition spanning centuries.


What the Critics Say

"Woven through is the wonderful web of mysticism and the supernatural which we have come to expect....The clever combination of modern idiom and the timeless echo of history leaps from every page." (Daily Express) "A first-rate thriller with supernatural overtones...deftly illuminates the intrigues of village life. Quirky characters, an abundance of plot twists." (Publishers Weekly)

Great storytelling

Another very enjoyable Phil Rickman book. This is the second book by him that I have listened to and it has secured him a place on my short list of favourite authors. I love his skillful tension building, great characters and dark, esoteric themes. I was genuinely disappointed when the story ended and rushed off to purchase the next installment in the Merrily Watkins series. The narrator did a fantastic job too.
