In high summer, darkness descends on Elgar's England.

Shadowed by the Malvern Hills, the village of Wychehill is no rural paradise but an uneasy mix of embittered farmers, escapees from the city, and a pub with a reputation for drug dealing. Called in to investigate an unsettling series of road accidents, Merrily Watkins stumbles into a barbed tangle of alienation, murder...and the fatal pursuit of an archaic secret.

    " I'm not sure what to think of this book. It's very English. The characters are either muted (adults) or hysterical (adolescents). It's a bit of a muddle, at least to me. I'm not sure who killed whom or why. I was particularly annoyed by the fact that everyone carried cell phones, but nobody ever answered them. Seemed pointless. Lots and lots of exposition revealed in pages and pages of dialogue with no action. I hope this isn't Rickman's best book, but I won't be finding out. "

    " Not only are this author's books entertaining, but they are also educational. I learned quite a bit about both Elgar and Alfred Watkins while reading this one. "
