Compassionate, original and sharply contemporary. Rickman's crime series is one of the best around - Spectator
First rate. A passionate, flawed modern woman, every bit as concerned with the intricacies of crime as with demons that go bump in the night - Daily Mail
I thoroughly recommend both these books …. They would make a solid Christmassy read, appropriate to the season … Rickman's work has a satisfying refusal to find easy answers or to take sides in spiritual debates. The destabilizing combination of death and religion is fascinatingly observed in this series. What T.S.Eliot did for Canterbury Cathedral, Rickman does for Hereford - Shotsmag on Fabric of Sin and To Dream of the Dead.
