THE FIRST IN THE INCREDIBLE MERRILY WATKINS SERIES
Merrily Watkins: late thirties, single mum, parish priest. Cosy? I don't think so...


The new vicar had never wanted a picture-postcard parish - or a huge and haunted vicarage. Nor had she wanted to walk into a dispute over a controversial play about a seventeenth-century clergyman accused of witchcraft... a story that certain long-established families would rather remained obscure.

But this is Ledwardine, steeped in cider and secrets...

A paradise of cobbled streets and timber-framed houses. And also - as Merrily Watkins and her teenage daughter, Jane, discover - a village where horrific murder is a tradition that spans centuries.

Ancient history, violent deaths, feuds, intrigues and murder. A most original sleuth. * The Times *
A wonderful, enthralling read. Huge tensions. All too believable. You are there with poor Merrily every step of the way. -- Barbara Erskine * Daily Express *
A first rate thriller with supernatural overtones . . . deftly illuminates the intrigues of village life. * Publishers Weekly *
Well, Holmes did say that the lowest and vilest alleys of London do not present a more dreadful record of sin than does the smiling and beautiful countryside . . . * Jerusalem Post *

“Did not like it at all!”

Despite excellent reviews elsewhere, I felt this was one of the worst books I've ever read. Nothing much happened until 3/4 of the way through, by which time I'd given up the will to live! I couldn't... More
