When offered the post once styled Church of England Deliverance Minister, the Reverend Merrily Watkins parish priest and single parent cannot easily refuse. But the retiring exorcist, strongly objecting to women priests, not only refuses to help Merrily but ensures that she's soon exposed to the job at its most terrifying.

And things get no easier: as an early winter slices through the old city of Hereford, a body is found in the River Wye, an ancient church is desecrated, and there are signs of dark ritual on a hill overlooking the city.

    " Wonderful tale of dark forces threatening the Church of England, with Merrily Watkins coming to the rescue. A different king of mystery tale, with some nice twists and interesting characters. "

    " Interesting, a novel about exorcisim in the anglican church, a good read with lots of twists and turns, even if you're not sure about the religious side of it, it's a good read. Some great description of Hereford and the surrounding areas. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack Maitre | 12/31/2013

    " I enjoyed this more than I liked "The Wine of Angels." I appreciated Merrily's vacillating state of mind as she struggled to resolve her calling with the reality of life in the modern era. "

    " A woman becomes the new Hereford Diocesis deliverance Minister(exorcist).Is it a job for a woman? Generally low key spooky events with some nicely drawn if steriotypical characters specifically the know all teenage daughter and a horrendously trendy Bishop. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cole Davis | 10/11/2013

    " You learn a lot about the Church of England's view of the supernatural. "

    " Yowser! A really good read. I liked the very human female vicar/exorcist and her sassy daughter and the story was scary, edge of your seat entertainment. where can I get more??? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robyn | 9/8/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Astrid | 5/27/2012

    " Liked this one even better than the first one. The church, a married bishop who has the hots for his female underling, exorcism, satanism and dead crows, OY! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Hines | 1/10/2012

    " The first Merrily Watkins book struck me as a bit too cutesy, but here Rickman seems to hit his stride and the tone is better balanced between satire, domestic comedy and supernatural menace. This number in the series is on par with his better non-series books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tracey Wilde | 10/28/2011

    " I really enjoyed it !! Its a good story with a little bit of a mystical element. I had to think about it a bit but I liked that. I will definitely read more of his. "

    " Anyone who loves a good mystery and the paranormal will love the Merrily Watkins series. I have enjoyed his other novels as well, but they haven't inspired the moments of absolute look over your shoulder in chilled to the bone terror while you're reading, as this series has, more than a few times "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Caroline Ingvaldsen | 3/22/2011

    " Engaging hybrid of English cozy seasoned by the domestic dynamic of a single mother and her difficult teen daughter and theological mystery with a Satanic twist. "
