The Magus of Hay (Merrily Watkins Mysteries)

Phil Rickman

An unnatural physique, a city steeped in black magic, and maddening isolation—has paranormal consultant Merrily Watkins ultimately met her match?

A man's physique is located lower than a waterfall. It seems like suicide or an unintended drowning—until DI Frannie Bliss enters the lifeless man's domestic. What he unearths there sends him to Merrily Watkins, the Diocese of Hereford's professional consultant at the paranormal. it is been nearly 40 years due to the fact that Hay used to be declared an autonomous kingdom through its self-styled king—a improvement noticeable on the time as a comic story, a exposure rip-off. yet at the back of this pastiche a gloomy layout was once taking form, making a hidden background of homicide and ritual-magic, the relics of that are merely now turning into horribly seen. it is a state of affairs that might take Merrily Watkins—alone for the 1st time in years—to the sting of madness.
