As an early winter slices though the old city of Hereford, a body is found in the River Wye, an ancient church is desecrated, and there are signs of a dark ritual on the hill overlooking the city. Meanwhile, there are reports of psychic unrest in the city's cathedral that speak of an undying evil lying close to the heart of the Church of England. In this second electrifying tale, exorcist Rev. Merrily Watkins must tread in places where an intangible malevolence thrives uncurbed by the forces of law and order.

Learn the secrets that go into being an exorcist in the contemporary Borders region, and then join Merrily as she helps the police distinguish human crime from otherworldly evil. But does she get it right? No gore here, but much creepiness, and lovely descriptions of rural Wales.

Good series. This book involved more paranormal than I would have liked, but still a great read.

This is the 2nd in the Merrily Watkins series where Merrily is thrust into the role of Deliverance Minister for the Church of England. This is a new softer term for Exorcist. Normally, I would shy away from this side of the supernatural but this book has been written without horror and I felt quite comfortable reading it. Yet, a few times, I did feel the hair raise on the back of my neck. Quite spellbinding and a great read.
