    Merrily Watkins is a country vicar and trainee exorcist - but she has to juggle these roles with being a single mother and helping to solve a local murder investigation.

    The Wine of Angels finds Merrily arriving at her new picture-postcard parish. Much like her haunted vicarage, it's something she didn't wish for. While Merrily and her teenage daughter, Jane, delve into the history of Ledwardine, they realise it's a village steeped in murderous history.

    Midwinter of the Spirit finds Merrily being offered the role of Deliverance Consultant (formerly Diocesan Exorcist). However, the role starts badly and gets no easier - a body is found in the River Wye, an ancient church is desecrated and signs of evil begin to appear in the cathedral... A Crown of Lights has a young pagan couple buying a redundant church - much to the fury of the local fundamentalist minister. As a modern witch hunt bubbles away in an isolated community on the Welsh border, Merrily is tasked with keeping a lid on the cauldron - but what she discovers will seriously test her beliefs.

    You may have seen the ITV adaptation of Phil Rickman's Merrily Watkins series, also called Midwinter of the Spirit, but we reckon you'll enjoy the books even more.

    Part noir, part psychedelic romp, all Thomas Pynchon!

    Private eye Doc Sportello comes, occasionally, out of a marijuana haze to watch the end of an era as free love slips away and paranoia creeps in with the L.A. fog. It's been awhile since Doc Sportello has seen his ex-girlfriend. Suddenly, out of nowhere, she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with. Easy for her to say. It's the tail end of the psychedelic sixties in L.A., and Doc knows that 'love' is another of those words going around at the moment, like 'trip' or 'groovy', except that this one usually leads to trouble.

    Despite which he soon finds himself drawn into a bizarre tangle of motives and passions whose cast of characters includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, a tenor sax player working undercover, an ex-con with a swastika tattoo and a fondness for Ethel Merman, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists.

    In this lively yarn Inherent Vice, Thomas Pynchon, working in an unaccustomed genre, provides a classic illustration of the principle that if you can remember the sixties, you weren't there...or...if you were there, then you...or, wait, is it...
