5.0 out of 5 stars
Book of the year for me, 6 Sept. 2011
A long awaited return to Ledwardine village and the fabulous Merrily Watkins, deliverance Minister and mum to feisty teenager Jane. Phil Rickman has really hit the big time with his latest book, all my favourite characters on fine form and the rescue party led by Gomer Parry on a JCB - brilliant! I wore my 'Gomer Parry Plant Hire' tee shirt with pride whilst reading :) The fine writing, great locations and atmosphere make this a book that draws you in, keeps you engaged and leaves you wanting more. If you haven't read any Merrily books yet and are looking for a new author to try, Phil Rickman is the one to go for - murder, mystery, historical accuracy and spookiness all wrapped up in a cracking good read. Mr Rickman, you are my favourite author and I adore Merrily and co so could you just head back to your desk and concentrate on getting the next book out ASAP?
