The Wine of Angels Description

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 he finds there sends him to Merrily Watkins, the Diocese of Hereford's official advisor on the paranormal. It's nearly 40 years since Hay was declared an independent state by its self-styled king. A development seen at the time as a joke, a publicity scam.

    A new husband and a new house. Just as well, because Zoe doesn't like old. Back in the 1960s, this house was built to look ultra modern, with lots of glass and sharp angles. And it was going cheap, perhaps because of the self-inflicted death of a previous owner - notoriously bloody and prolonged. But Zoe didn't know that. And if her husband Jonathan knew, he kept very quiet. How is Merrily Watkins, diocesan exorcist for Hereford, to know what’s behind Zoe’s claim that the late Susan Lulham is still in residence?
