Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The occult collides with police procedure in Guttridge&'s fragmented, patchwork fourth Brighton mystery (after 2011&'s The Thing Itself). A huge wicker man is burning on the Brighton seaside. Performance art? Unfortunately no. There&'s a body within the wicker frame, and Sarah Gilchrist, newly promoted to acting detective inspector, teams with young but highly knowledgeable Constable Bellamy Heap to find whodunit. Heap&'s bottomless knowledge of pagan arcana comes into continual use as more perplexing events hit the town: a vicar has disappeared, his flat vandalized with a pentagram; a painting called The Devil&'s Altar is stolen from the Brighton Museum; and satanic books are missing from the library. Routine questioning of eccentric locals finds a rich vein of New Age spirituality mixed with black magic. Meanwhile, former Chief Insp. Bob Watts begins a parallel investigation on his own and learns more about Templars, Walpurgisnacht, and toxic plants than he or the reader really wants to know. (Oct.)

From Booklist

Live fish falling from the sky in the opening pages signal a sea change for Guttridge. After the gritty noir of his lauded Brighton trilogy, his fourth Brighton mystery, with its returning cast of characters, takes a turn toward the occult. Newly promoted Detective Inspector Sarah Gilchrist is working the case of the Wicker Man, burned at dawn on the beach and found to contain human remains. At the same time, disgraced ex-chief constable Robert Watts is tracking down mystifying inscriptions by noted authors in books owned by his late father, a thriller writer. Meanwhile, a young vicar disappears, magic items are stolen from museums, and herbalism is taken to new heights. Brighton is the California of England, with no trend too weird, as Gilchrist notes, and nearby Saddlescombe Farm is a former Knights Templar site and reputed source of power—“so Dan Brown,” as Watts remarks. But readers expecting hard-hitting crime fiction may be impatient with pages of Templar history, despite Guttridge’s well-wrought prose, an appealing new character in Constable Bellamy Heap, and a deadly climax reuniting former colleagues. --Michele Leber
