Publisher's Summary

When Aidan Lloyd's bleak funeral is followed by a nocturnal ritual in the fog, it becomes all too clear that Aidan, son of a wealthy farmer, will not be resting in peace. Aidan's hidden history has reignited an old feud, and a rural tradition begins to display its sinister side.
It's already a fraught time for Merrily Watkins, her future threatened by a bishop committed to restricting her role as diocesan exorcist for Hereford. Suddenly there are events she can't talk about as she and her daughter, Jane, find themselves potentially on the wrong side of the law.
In the city of Hereford, DI Frannie Bliss, investigating a shooting, must confront the apparent growth of organised crime, also contaminating the countryside. On the Welsh border, the old ways are at war with the modern world. As the days shorten and the fog gives way to ice and snow, a savage killing draws Merrily Watkins into a conflict centred on one of Britain's most famous medieval churches, its walls laden with ancient symbolism.

Might be the best Merrily book yet.

I've been a huge fan of this series for some time, and though I wasn't thrilled with the last book--its a bit of a "transition" novel, necessary in order for the characters to have room to grow, but a bit dark because of this--this one reminds me why I loved the series so much in the first place. And though it ends with all our characters still in transition---Frannie Bliss and Annie Howe in the most shocking way possible--the story is fantastic and we can see a light at the end of the tunnel for all of them. Or at least those who survived the winter's night.

Excellent, had me guessing up to the very end

I've listened to the whole Merrily series narrated by Emma Powell. You may think the books start to struggle when the series goes on. Not at all. One of the best yet! I thought I knew the format and work out who was doing what! Wrong! Emma's narrative is superb as there are a lot different characters to handle! Phil has a lot of subtle sub plots going on with plenty of humour that Emma has picked up on. Thanks for all the books Phil! Keep them coming.

The best Merrily Watkins mystery?

I have listened to all of Phil Rickman's Merrily books. They are all really excellent. This one is definitely one of the best - if not the best. At least one big surprise relating to recurring characters in the series. Very highly recommended but it may help to have listened to OR read books 1 to 13 first!

Emma Powells narration is perfect. Very highly recommended.
