THE SIXTEENTH INSTALMENT IN THE MERRILY WATKINS SERIES
‘Merrily Watkins is the most singular of crime fiction protagonists… As ever [Rickman]’s supremely skillful at teasing out the menace that lies behind English folk customs and legends and weaving them into a compelling contemporary narrative.’ Mail on Sunday
”I called on Darkness-but before the word
Was uttered, midnight darkness seemed to take
All objects from my sight…’
England’s most famous poet once thought of himself as a modern druid and found his deepest inspiration on the banks of the River Wye, where Celtic magic can still be found and an old darkness lingers.
Now, as the world is at the mercy of the coronavirus pandemic, diocesan exorcist Merrily Watkins learns that the ghosts of the lower Wye Valley still need some attention…
Phil Rickman lives on the Welsh border where he writes and presents the book programme Phil the Shelf on BBC Radio Wales. He is the hugely popular author of the Merrily Watkins series and the John Dee papers.
