In The Man Who Went Up in Smoke, Beck is on holiday off the coast of Sweden, but a phone call from a neighbour forces him off to Budapest to hunt for a journalist who's vanished without a trace. The Man on the Balcony sees Beck confronted by the most inhumane crimes he has ever seen...

    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.
