Night After Night by Phil Rickman

Contains scenes some viewers may find disturbing...Leo Defford doesn't believe in ghosts. But, as the head of an independent production company, he does believe in high-impact TV. Defford hires journalist Grayle Underhill to research the history of Knap Hall, a one-time Tudor farmhouse that became the ultimate luxury guest house...until tragedy put it back on the market. Its recent history isn't conducive to a quick sale, but Defford isn't interested in keeping Knap Hall for longer than it takes to make a reality TV show that will run night after night...A house isolated by its rural situation and its dark reputation. Seven people, nationally known, but strangers to one another, locked inside. But this time, Big Brother may not be in control.


'Compassionate, original and sharply contemporary, Rickman's crime series is one of the best around.'

-Spectator on the Merrily Watkins series

'Ancient history, violent deaths, feuds, intrigues and murder. A most original sleuth.'

'Few writers blend the ancient and supernatural with the modern and criminal better than Rickman.'

-Guardian on the Merrily Watkins series

'First-rate crime with demons that go bump in the night.'

-Daily Mail on the Merrily Watkins series
