Publisher's Summary

A crumbling hotel on the border of England and Wales, a suggestion of inherited evil, a mystifying love affair...and the long-disputed origins of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles. It’s all endlessly fascinating for young Jane Watkins, flushed by the freedom of her first weekend job.
But her mother, Merrily, Deliverance Consultant to the Diocese of Hereford, is increasingly aware of the sinister secrets that are being unearthed. It seems that Stanner Hall is linked not only to the Victorian fascination with spiritualism and the legacy of a medieval exorcism but with a chain of murders that is far from fictional.

A nicely woven tapestry....

Once again Phil Rickman creates characters with depth and vitality. I also loved the 'drop ins' from characters mentioned in other books- it was lovely to hear the Thoroughgoods were still around and the mention of Big Wheel too. Gomer and Jane just get better with age and even Lucy makes a guest appearance :)
