Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'Merrily is a most original sleuth and an interesting, sparky woman of emotional and spiritual depth. Rickman is an excellent writer, terrific on atmosphere ... The best so far' --The Times

'A first class thriller with a difference' --Guardian

'Nail-biting, yet thoughtful and complex. What T.S. Eliot did for Canterbury Cathedral, Rickman does for Hereford' --Jane Jakeman, Shotsmag

Présentation de l'éditeur

A rainy night in the cathedral city of Hereford. A grisly murder is linked by DI Francis Bliss with the campaign to preserve an ancient ritual site. And then Bliss is sidelined by his boss. What's going on?

In the village of Ledwardine, Merrily Watkins stands between an extreme fundamentalist Christian and an atheist writer known as 'The Devil's Spin Doctor'.

Tensions are rising… and so is the river. Soon Ledwardine will be isolated by floods, cut off with a killer inside - a new kind of killer for a cold new age.

HASH(0x9a5a1db0) étoiles sur 5 To Dream of the Dead 8 novembre 2008
Par Bloomsbury - Publié sur
Format: Relié
The latest installment of the adventures of Merrily Watkins, Deliverance Consultant (read exorcist) & parish priest for the village of Ledwardine, is a wonderful book.

Phil Rickman seems incapable of putting a foot wrong in this series. The characters are interesting, totally believable & varied, from Merrily herself to minor bit players, all fully realized & unerringly depicted.

Merrily's daughter Jane has developed convincingly through the series and is arguably the best creation of a teenaged girl in modern fiction. This book sees her struggling with issues that would be vividly familiar to this age group, all concerned with the transition to an independent life.

Her long term boyfriend Eirion is back, as is the complex musician Lol. The multi-layered plot vividly details the uneasy juxtaposition of "progressive" development which disenfranchises many of the long term residents of the area, and the workings of the human heart and spirit.

Rickman is honest and fearless in his examination of motivation and character, and of how struggling to do "the right thing" can make your life very difficult. The many facets of loneliness are a constant refrain in his books. Lol expresses this with his "Alien" sweatshirt & album, & in this book the detective Frannie Bliss - an outsider from Merseyside - finds himself on the outer from the Police force & his family.

Merrily is more of a traditional priest in "To Dream of the Dead", with the supernatural aspects of her job less intense. Rickman handles the supernatural elements of this series superbly & intelligently.

As always, music is an important background element, with the late Nick Drake an invisible presence throughout.

The complexity & richness of this series is amazing. Lesser books than "To Dream of the Dead" have won the Booker prize.

HASH(0x9a5af1a4) étoiles sur 5 The Nightmare Before Christmas 21 novembre 2008
Par T. Williams - Publié sur
Format: Relié
It's the week before Christmas, Ledwardine is threatened by flooding and a gruesome discovery is made at the old Blackfriars Monastery. The events that follow create a nightmarish advent for Merrily, Jane, Lol, Detective Frannie Bliss and the people living in Ledwardine. In his inimitable style, Phil Rickman once again delivers a tightly-woven tale of murder, greed, hate and religion gone wrong. While Bliss fights to find a cold-blooded murderer and save his career, Merrily fights to save the spiritual core of her parish -- and herself -- from a hateful attack. And the chaos created by those natural and human forces also wreak havoc in the personal lives of the characters we've grown to love.

While Rickman's latest offering is more of a detective story than a supernatural thriller, fans of "woo-woo" will not be disappointed. The supernatural element, though sparingly evidenced, proves crucial throughout.

I particulary loved To Dream of the Dead for the major role Jane and Bliss play in solving the crime. BIG surprises await readers at the end of this one. Put Dream on your Christmas list, if you can wait that long!
HASH(0x9a5ac750) étoiles sur 5 Don't read this one without reading the ninth book first! 16 mai 2012

Though most of the books in the Merrily Watkins series are more or less standalone plots, this tenth book really built quite a bit on the actions of the previous novel, The Fabric of Sin (Merrily Watkins Mysteries). The ending is not as neatly tied up, so I would imagine that the eleventh book, The Secrets of Pain. Phil Rickman, will continue on in this manner.

As usual, it is the characters who really shine in the novel - and though I always enjoy Merrily and Lol, it was nice to see Erion return. Another special cameo is made by a series original, which adds such a nice touch. It is a lovely series, and one that I will be quite sad to finish!

HASH(0x9a5b0390) étoiles sur 5 All this and a soundtrack too... 22 septembre 2009
Par Julia E. Adams - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I love all the Merrily Watkins books and can't really add to the book reviews here except to say, did you know there are two albums, too? Songs from Lucy's Cottage and A Message from the Morning are CDs of character Lol Robinson's songs, lyrics by Phil Rickman and music by Allan Watson and Hazey Jane II. Readers of the Merrily Watkins novels will recognize Baker's Lament, Cure of Souls, Elgar, and Lucy's Song because snippets of Lol's lyrics appeared in the novels. But now the songs have been completed, and they're gorgeous. Lol was heavily influenced by Nick Drake and elements of Nick are interwoven. Lol spent his own time in the psych ward, hence Heavy Medication Day. Find info at Phil Rickman's website and Hazey Jane 2's myspace page. For all of us fans of the Merrily Watkins books, Lol lives! Added treats are Phil Rickman reading from Traherne, quotations from Leather's Folklore of Herefordshire, and the voice of Gomer Parry.

HASH(0x9a5af138) étoiles sur 5 Another Winner from Phil Rickman 29 novembre 2008
Par Jacqueline M. Tomlinson - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Once again, Phil Rickman has written an absorbing and intriguing mystery starring my favourite clergy person, Merrily Watkins and her irrepressible daughter Jane. I await each Phil Rickman book - whether Merrily Watkins or his other excellent novels - impatiently. Great plots, interesting history and folklore, and beautifully drawn characters.
