Police officer David Hanlin is asked to investigate the presumed murder of a child in an obscure rural village in Cornwall. During the protagonist's short stay, he is slowly subjected to a spectacle of psychological trickery, sexual seduction, ancient religious practices and nightmarish sacrificial rituals. Shrouded in the same brand of mystery and contradiction that forms its tangled plot, Ritual, the 1967 debut by playwright David Pinner, is commonly recognised to be the basis for the 1973 film, The Wicker Man, which has enthralled and inspired generations of film enthusiasts throughout the world.

    " A grotesqueness. "

    " A little different to the Wicker Man that was derived from this text. Interesting comparison, perhaps gives a little insight into the motivations of the policeman in the later version. "

    " Great quick read. Obscure British rural/pagan/crime caper, that was the basis for essential 1970's UK horror classic The Wicker Man. "

    " The opening page of this book is so interestingly written it captivates you through it's attention to inner detail and emotion. Twisted and jagged the narrative shifts and turns in the rugged Cornish landscape. Leaving the reader wandering through bitter thorns towards the oak tree. "
