Chills, thrills and satisfies. A fabulous read.
A historical thriller with a touch of romance and more than a hint of necromancy... Brilliantly imagined and grippingly executed.
We don't praise our home-grown thriller writers enough, it's high time we praised Phil Rickman.
No-one writes better than Phil Rickman of the shadow-frontier between the supernatural and the real world.
Gripping throughout. Powerful, classic stuff.
Crisp prose, excellent dialogue and real sense of mounting evil.
Grimly sinister. Written with blood-curdling aplomb.
Phil Rickman is one of my all-time favorites. I love everything he's done, from horror to mystery to supernatural thriller - often all in the same book.Diana Gabaldon
Ancient history, violent deaths, feuds, intrigues and murder. A most original sleuth.
A thriller that calms spirits both quick and dead. Rich with shivers.
First rate crime with demons that go bump in the night.
A dark no man's land where murder mingles with superstition. Brilliant.
