With the framework of her own world beginning to crack, Merrily must venture into areas of mystery and menace; the secrets of the border's pagan past... 'Ancient history, violent deaths, feuds, intrigues and murder.

A most original sleuth.' - The Times'What I remember most was the sound of his breath.

A hollow sound, as though he was drawing breath from somewhere else.

Afterwards, he just said goodnight. I don't think he even remembered my name.'Hereford is home to the elite warriors of the SAS.

The place where their secrets are hidden . . . secrets that go well beyond pain and can wreck marriages and private lives.

When Merrily Watkins loses a friend in the regiment, she's drawn into a place where no woman is welcome, to investigate profound mysteries linked to the area's brutal pagan past.
