'A most original sleuth' THE TIMES
Welcome to the River Wye: a place of poetry, historic obsession... and occult murder.

Nestled deep in the Black Mountains, the village of Longtown is haunted by the double suicide of a lottery winner and his wife.

A rich Londoner, unaware of the town's dark history, buys the dead man's cottage in the hopes of refurbishing it...then begins to fall victim to a host of bad luck.

Luckily DS David Vaynor and Merrily Watkins - parish priest, single mum and renowned demon exorcist - are on the case.
