But he knew nothing of the town's legacy of dark magic - and nobody felt like telling him Though dead for two millennia, he remains perfectly preserved in black peat.
The Man in the Moss is one of the most fascinating finds of the century. But, for the isolated Pennine community of Bridelow, his removal is a sinister sign. A danger to the ancient spiritual tradition maintained, curiously, by the Mothers' Union. In the weeks approaching Samhain - the Celtic feast of the dead - tragedy strikes again in Bridelow. Garway church was built by medieval Knights Templar. After seven centuries, the Welsh border village is still shadowed in their mysteries.
Why do the local pubs have astrological names? What happened in Garway to intimidate the Edwardian ghost-story writer M. R James? And why is it impossible to find a builder prepared to restore the ancient Master House, a few fields away from Garway church? It is , and Elizabeth Tudor has been on the throne for a year.

Now the bookish Dee has been sent to Glastonbury to find the missing bones of King Arthur.
The town is still mourning the gruesome execution of its abbot, Richard Whiting. But why was he killed?

In the ruins of a haunted medieval abbey, four musicians hope to tap into the site's dark history. The experience almost destroys them. Glastonbury, legendary resting place of the Holy Grail, is a mysterious and haunting town. But when plump, dizzy Diane Ffitch returns home, it's with a sense of deep unease - and not only about her aristocratic family's reaction to her broken engagement and her New Age companions.
Plans for a new motorway have intensified the old bitterness between the local people and the 'pilgrims', so already the sacred air is soured.

It was insidious For Bethan, the schoolteacher, the old superstitions woven into the social fabric of her West Wales village are primitive and distasteful. Which is why she's pleased to welcome the sophisticated newcomers: London journalist Giles Freeman and his wife, Claire. Surely they'll let in some fresh air. Jack's a retired ex-cop from New York, seeking the simple life in Cherringham. Sarah's a Web designer who's moved back to the village find herself.
But their lives are anything but quiet as the two team up to solve Cherringham's criminal mysteries. Greta Helsing has inherited the family's highly specialized and highly peculiar medical practice. She treats the undead for a host of ills - vocal strain in banshees, arthritis in barrow-wights, and entropy in mummies. It's a quiet, supernatural-adjacent life until a sect of murderous monks emerges, killing human and undead Londoners alike.
As terror takes hold of the city, Greta must use her unusual skills to stop the cult if she hopes to save her practice - and her life. Promising architect Peter Young is shot dead at his desk. DCI Craig Gillard is on the scene, looking at what appears to be a brutal and highly professional hit: two bullets, fired with ice-cold calm.
Gillard knows that the most crucial question in solving the crime is one word: why? Two weeks later, on the Lincolnshire coast, another body is found on a windswept beach. In this case there is no identity for the young man, just a curious brand burned into his neck When autumn storms blast Hereford, centuries-old human bones are found among the roots of a blown down tree.
