Latest novel in the Merrily Watkins series. A crumbling hotel on the English-Welsh border. A suggestion of inherited evil, a strange love affair and the disputed origins of "The Hound Of The Baskervilles". Fascinating stuff for young Jane Watkins, but the sinister side becomes increasingly apparent to her mother, Merrily, diocesan exorcist for Hereford.
Phil Rickman lives on the Welsh border where he writes and presents the book programme Phil the Shelf on BBC Radio Wales. He is the hugely popular author of The Bones of Avalon and the Merrily Watkins Mysteries.
