and we also meet up with some old friends from the Demdike legacy such as Barry Molyneaux the Bishop's occult advisor, Bess from the cafe, Anne Redfern, Lewis the Hedgewitch and also Chief Insector Stone and DS Alexandra Johnson.

After having a miscarriage Emma falls into a deep depression until one day she visits a Psychic fair where she meets Marcus. He tells her to sit down and then goes on to read her Tarot cards using the Crowley deck. This is a link to his Familiar, the once Vicar General of Avignon during the Inquisition in the 17th century. He has to get Emma into his thrall as Sinistrari is an Incubus and needs a female victim every 7 years. If not he will die and so will his Master, Marcus.

A chance meeting with Bess Whittle and Anne Redfern finds Emma and her Sister being addressed as 'sisters'.
When Emma gets home she has the urge to sunbathe skyclad and inadvertently opens herself up to the protection of the Goddess. This sets back the Fortune Tellers plans.

When a young DS is killed on the way back from Emma's house after collecting some ashes things start to get seriously scary. Will Stone and Alexandra working with the Witches work out what is happening before the Incubus takes Emma?

Excellent horror story written by someone who knows his stuff. Great characters, plot and pace. Similar to Wheatley and King but so much better

A fast paced satisfying read. Enjoyable and uncomplicated. Believable characters in a modern day witch / detective story. Bravo Barry!

Thoroughly enjoyable read, it makes you believe that witches could still do the sort of magic we all wish we could manage.

It is 6am on Christmas morning. All my family are still in bed but I had to get up just to finish this book! If as I did, you read The Demdyck Legacy first, all the way through that book, the Manchester case is mentioned but not in much detail, this book is the Manchester case. What a superb book this is! It was lovely to meet some of the same characters again especially Lewis, who is more of a background character in Demdyck and it tells of the meeting between Detectives Stone and Johnson. I have really enjoyed reading both books and would most certainly recommend. I hope Mr Durham sees fit to write more Pendle Hill books as the strong characters and great stories lines will definitely keep me coming back. Merry Christmas Mr Durham and thank you for some exciting and enjoyable hours of reading.
