Wrong Doers, it’s time to say your prayers!
Jess Ward has only been back on the Isle of Wesberrey for a few weeks, but all the recent drama has made it feel a lot longer. Drama much increased by the unexpected arrival of her sister Susannah.
The bishop is due in a few days to formally install her into the benefice of St. Bridget’s and there is so much to prepare. Add to that a double funeral and a surprise visit from her mother and Jess has no time for family legends about the ‘godmother’ and the Well of the Triple Goddess.
However, the disappearance of a wealthy businessman forces Jess to reexamine her personal connection to this ancient family myth – her family claim they can sense that he is dead.
It’s all madness, of course. But the discovery of his body at his father-in-law’s funeral drags them all back into the island’s darkest secrets.
Her best friend has gone AWOL with the handsome undertaker and her sister is proving to be an unwanted distraction for the dishy police inspector.
Things move fast on Wesberrey, and it’s enough to make Jess dizzy. Or is that the result of reconnecting with her pagan past?

Steve Higgs writes in multiple genres, his head constantly filing with stories that he simply cannot get out fast enough. It has been like that for as long as he can remember but his decision to pursue a career as a writer didn’t occur to him until he was in his forties. Among his passions are cozy mystery, supernatural suspense, and urban fantasy.

About Steve Higgs
When Steve Higgs wrote his debut novel, Paranormal Nonsense, he was a Captain in the British Army. He would love to pretend that he had one of those careers that has to be redacted and in general denied by the government and that he has had to change his name and continually move about because he is still on the watch list in several countries. In truth though, he started out as a mechanic. Not like Jason Statham in the film by that name, sneaking about as a contract killer, but more like one of those greasy gits who charge you a fortune and keep your car for a week when all you went in for was a squeaky door hinge.
At school, he was mostly disinterested in every subject except creative writing, for which, at age ten, he won his first award. However, calling it his first award suggests that there have been more, which there have not. Accolades may come but, in the meantime, he is having a ball writing mystery stories, urban fantasies, and crime thrillers and claims to have more than a hundred books forming an unruly queue in his head as they clamor to get out.
Now retired from the military, he lives in the south-east corner of England with a trio of lazy sausage dogs. Surrounded by rolling hills, brooding castles and vineyards, he doubts he will ever leave, the beer is just too good.
