Midwinter of the Spirit
Diocesan Exorcist: a job viewed by the Church of England with such extreme suspicion that they changed the name. It’s Deliverance Consultant now. Still, it seems, no job for a woman. But when the Bishop offers it to Merrily Watkins – parish priest and single mum – she’s in no position to refuse.
It starts badly for Merrily and gets no easier. As an early winter slices through the old city of Hereford, a body is found in the River Wye, an ancient church is desecrated and signs of evil appear in the cathedral itself, where the tomb of a mediaeval saint lies in pieces.

A Crown of Lights
A disused church near a Welsh border hamlet has already been sold off by the Church when it’s discovered that the new owners are pagans who intend to use the building for their own rituals.
Single mother and Diocesan Exorcist Merrily Watkins must keep the peace in rural Hereford, quelling a modern witch hunt, and a killer with an old tradition to guard.
