    An influence on everyone from Ian Fleming to Alfred Hitchcock, John Buchan's Richard Hannay thrillers are among the most popular adventures ever written and this collection gives you the chance to enjoy four of his most rip-roaring books - including The Thirty-Nine Steps.

He heads to his native Scotland to flee the police and his enemies - but he will have to keep his wits about him if he is to warn the government before it's too late.

    This collection also finds Hannay tasked with a secret mission to catch a dangerous German agent who is at large in Britain; finding his children being held hostage by a kidnapper who may have something to do with a popular member of parliament; and being asked by an old acquaintance from Africa to resolve a 30-year feud.

    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.
