a tremendous and very addictive read

I recently discovered the Merrily Watkins series and am working through them in order. I haven't reviewed them all, but I think that now, at number four in the series, some comments are in order. I just love these books! You can enjoy them as character studies (Merrily and Jane are wonderful creations), as really gripping mystery/thrillers, and of course there is also the religious/spiritual angle, which adds greater depth. I must say I do not consider myself a particularly religious person, but having been brought up in the Anglican tradition, I find myself utterly fascinated with all aspects of the deliverance ministry whose existence I did not even know of! Added to all this, the writing is really fine, with striking, atmospheric descriptions, good dialogue and lovely touches of humour. As soon as I finish one I am looking for the next. I wholeheartedly recommend these books, they appeal on so many levels. Try one and maybe you'll be hooked like me!
