Description
In this, her eighth outing (following The Smile of a Ghost), Merrily Watkins—parish priest, single mum, and Deliverance Consultant to the Diocese of Hereford (don't call her an exorcist)—heads for the Malvern Hills to investigate an alleged paranormal dimension to a spate of road accidents in the sleepy village of Wychehill. Two people have been killed in a head-on crash that may be linked to the revamped local pub, which—it seems—has injected the valley with a pounding surge of inner-city nightlife, including drug trafficking. When a dealer is found savagely murdered below the great earthen hillfort of Herefordshire Beacon, police are unsure whether it is a ritual killing, a gangland disposal, or a cry of outrage.

"First rate. A passionate, flawed, modern woman, every bit as concerned with the intricacies of crime as with demons that go bump in the night."—Daily Mail (London)
