Description

In Herefordshire's hop-growing country, a converted kiln is the scene of a savage murder. When the local vicar refuses to help its new owners cope with the aftermath, Merrily Watkins is sent in by the Bishop of Hereford to defuse the situation.

Merrily, however, is already contending with a woman's claim that her daughter is possessed by evil. In both cases Merrily remains unconvinced, but nothing is ever quite what it seems.

As she is drawn into a tangle of trickery, deceit, corruption and sexual menace, her hastily conducted exorcism produces unhappy results. With her career now on the line, she tries to uncover the secrets of Knight's Frome - a village concealing a twisted past as...

Critiques

"Rickman writes mysteries in the classic sense, cleverly combining the supernatural and criminal elements to illuminate the darkest corners of our imaginations." (John Connolly)

Extremely Enjoyable

Wonderful. Do push on through the rather slow start. As you get further in, you realise that a faster start would have left the listener confused. There is a lot of information and a lot of characters to be taken in, but once the groundwork has been laid, then the story romps away. Beautifully written. The reader was 90% there. She paused at inappropriate (to the sense of a sentence) moments. Her 'voices' really added to the atmosphere and to the characters. Extremely Enjoyable.

Spellbinding

Rickman once again weaves his fascinating fabric of the supernatural, the criminal, and the folklore of the countryside. While I normally listen to audio books while driving or doing chores, Rickman's stories so ensnare me that I find myself sitting down and just listening for much longer than I planned.
Ms. Powell is a wonderful narrator and makes the characters come alive. She enchants the reader with the distinctive local accents.
I only wish all the Merrily books were available on Audible.

A Good Read that Kept Me Wondering

Just when I decided that the story was a certain way, Mr. Rickman steers it in another direction! Loved the suspense! If you like Agatha Christi, Midsummer Murders or the like then you may like this one as well!

Love this series!

I love the blend of Christian and pagan mysticism! Engaging characters and rollercoaster plot twists make these books hard to put aside and get any work done !
