The Revd Merrily Watkins had never wanted a picture-postcard parish - or a huge and haunted vicarage. Nor had she particularly wanted to walk straight into a local dispute over a controversial play about a strange seventeeth-century clergyman accused of witchcraft ... a story that certain old-established families would rather remained obscure.

But this is Ledwardine, steeped in cider and secrets. A paradise of cobbled streets and timber-framed houses. And also - as Merrily and her teenage daughter Jane discover - a village where horrific murder is a tradition that spans centuries.

Review:

Ancient history, violent deaths, feuds, intrigues and murder. A most original sleuth. - The Times

First rate crime with demons that go bump in the night. - Daily Mail

Compassionate, original and sharply contemporary, Rickman's crime series is one of the best around. - Spectator

Few writers blend the ancient and supernatural with the modern and criminal better than Rickman. - Guardian

Rickman's writing [is] spooky and indirect, elegantly crafted but always a sense... that you've missed something you should have seen. - New York Review Of Books

A wonderful, enthralling read. Huge tensions. All too believable. You are there with poor Merrily every step of the way. - Daily Express

First class – Guardian

One of the best – Spectator

Compelling – Mail on Sunday

First rate – Daily Mail

Wonderful – Daily Express

Terrific – the Times

Wonderfully original – Daily Telegraph

Spine-tingling... Delightfully sinister - CrimeReview.co.uk

Phil Rickman is one of my all-time favourites. I love everything he's done. - Diana Gabaldon

Complex, absorbing, fascinating... - Andrew Taylor

The layers, the characters, the humour, the spookiness - perfect. - Elly Griffiths

No shortage of excitement. - Ruth Rendell

Tight with atmosphere, thick with latent violence... Brilliantly eerie. - Peter James

What a shame I've read all this fab writer's books. - Katie Fforde

Imbues paranormal fiction with subtlety, ambiguity and uncertainty like no other writer. - F.G. Cottam

Mysteries in the classic sense, cleverly combining the supernatural and criminal elements to illuminate the darkest corners of our imaginations. - John Connolly

Scared the sh-t out of me. - Jo Brand

Well-written, haunting. - Jeff Abbott

No-one writes better of the shadow-frontier between the supernatural and the real world. - Bernard Cornwell
