Syd Spicer served with the SAS. He has been trained to overcome pain and fear in all their forms. Well...almost all. Faced with a situation that would normally be passed discreetly to Hereford deliverance consultant Merrily Watkins, Spicer is handling it himself...and coming close to breakdown. Is there a national security aspect here, or is it something more personal?
With the framework of her own world beginning to crack, Merrily Watkins is persuaded to venture into areas where neither a priest nor a woman is welcome...to unearth secrets linked with the more arcane history of the Hereford-based SAS and the border's pagan past. Secrets involving blood ritual and darkest side of spirituality. Secrets that can never be disclosed.
