Syd Spicer served with the SAS. He has been trained to overcome pain and fear in all their forms. Well…almost all. Faced with a situation that would normally be passed discreetly to Hereford deliverance consultant Merrily Watkins, Spicer is handling it himself…and coming close to breakdown. Is there a national security aspect here, or is it something more personal?
With the framework of her own world beginning to crack, Merrily Watkins is persuaded to venture into areas where neither a priest nor a woman is welcome…to unearth secrets linked with the more arcane history of the Hereford-based SAS and the border’s pagan past. Secrets involving blood ritual and darkest side of spirituality. Secrets that can never be disclosed.

Can't imagine a Merrily story without Emma Powell
As always, the strong, good writing and character development. I've stopped reading books because of the clunky dialogue or unlikely behavior of characters. Rickman tends to be dead on: people are complicated, weird stuff happens and the characters are questioning their own perceptions of them in totally believable ways.
Always love me some Franny Bliss.
Everything she's done in this series I've listened to. She's golden as always.
... probably laugh, but this question's a little dumb. Why encourage people to go for the maudlin and overwrought stuff?
I have trouble listening to much supernatural/suspense stuff because of how overdone and hamfisted a lot of it is. Rickman's work puts you in a definite place (geographical and cultural), so the experience of reading isn't merely emotional or scary or educational. It's the full package.
i love this series
yes. never sure which directions the connections will come from
i live the was she pauses. it builds drama. i would not have read it like that
