Description
The Welsh border town of Ludlow has all the tourist draws, in this seventh Merrily Watkins mystery (following The Prayer of the Night Shepherd). Ludlow's exquisite medieval streets, cathedral-sized parish church, and brooding castle ruin all carry the weight of history and legend. But after a sad teenaged boy—the nephew of newly retired detective sergeant Andy Mumford—takes a fatal fall from the castle at sunset, his grandmother begins seeing her dead grandson in the old town. Mumford calls in Merrily Watkins—the Diocese of Hereford's ordained Deliverance Consultant and Advisor on the Paranormal—to find out if these appearances are from dementia, delusion, or something even more disturbing.

"Merrily Watkins faces her most challenging case yet in British author [Phil] Rickman's unsettling seventh mystery to feature the Anglican priest and deliverance consultant to the diocese of Hereford. When the 14-year-old nephew of newly retired Det. Sgt. Andy Mumford falls from the ruined castle in the medieval town of Ludlow, the official inquest rules the boy's death a suicide. Suspecting foul play, Mumford seeks Merrily's aid. Two more deaths shatter the village, and Mumford, not yet at peace with his retirement, begins to investigate on his own. Rickman vividly depicts Ludlow's narrow streets and the sinister castle, but it's his masterly handling of the occult elements and their impact on the psychology of his sensitive and memorable characters that will keep readers mesmerized from start to finish."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
