I'm on page 452 of Phil Rickman's THE CURE OF SOULS. Rickman's mystery series featuring The Rev. Mrs. Merrily Watkins entertain the dickens out of me.
I began with the first book, MIDWINTER OF THE SPIRIT, then to A CROWN OF LIGHTS and now CURE.

Rickman says he isn't a horror writer but I do get a bit squeamy with his stories. I may be a baby about scary stuff so don't let this stop you from reading about a fully realized character of an Anglican clergywoman who serves as the Deliverance Counselor for the Hereford Diocese. Merrily Watkins is someone who we'd enjoy having in the RGBP(copywrite) Group.

Mr. Rickman, thanks for entertaining me through these books. You do a good job.

Sincerely,
St. Casserole

Yes. I love this series. I have the latest one on hold at my local library where the computerized catalog has reported for a whole month that this book is "in process". Way to torture a mystery lover . . .

I am also concerned about the possible schism everyone is talking about. I will be at General Assembly this summer, so we will see what happens.
