In Crybbe, only strangers walk at twilight. For four hundred years, the curfew bell has tolled nightly from the church tower of the small country town, Crybbe's only defence against the evil rising unbidden in its haunted streets. Radio reporter Fay Morrison came to Crybbe because she had no choice. Millionaire music tycoon Max Goff came because there was nothing left to conquer, except the power of the spirit. But he knew nothing of the town's legacy of dark magic - and nobody felt like telling him.
Every night for 400 years, a curfew bell has tolled from the church tower of Crybbe. Superstitious ritual, or sole defence against an ancient evil?
About the Author
Phil Rickman lives on the Welsh border where he writes and presents the book programme Phil the Shelf on BBC Radio Wales. He is the hugely popular author of The Bones of Avalon and the Merrily Watkins series.
Gripping throughout. Powerful, classic stuff. * The Times * Crisp prose, excellent dialogue and real sense of mounting evil. * Time Out * Grimly sinister. Written with blood-curdling aplomb. * Sunday Telegraph * 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
