Publisher's Summary

A new husband and a new house. Just as well, because Zoe doesn't like old. Back in the 1960s, this house was built to look ultra modern, with lots of glass and sharp angles. And it was going cheap, perhaps because of the self-inflicted death of a previous owner - notoriously bloody and prolonged.

But Zoe didn't know that. And if her husband Jonathan knew, he kept very quiet. How is Merrily Watkins, diocesan exorcist for Hereford, to know what’s behind Zoe’s claim that the late Susan Lulham is still in residence?

Sceptical neighbours seem unlikely to help, and fresh blood will decorate the pristine white walls of the new house before its secret history begins, at last, to leak out.

    Story
    "The House Is Surely Too Modern to be Haunted"

    It's a Novella, 3 1/2 hours of listening time, but Rickman managed to get in a lot of what I enjoy about the Merrily Watkins series. There's more of an obviously supernatural strand in this particular story about a house in a modern housing development, built in the mid 20th century by an architect who had a dispute with the former owner of the land.

    Merrily is called in to investigate complaints by the wife of the pair who currently own the house and finds herself caught up with Facebook, a gory death in the past, and the house that is at the middle of it.

    I enjoyed listening to it although I missed the length, plot and character that Rickman usually has in his stories.

    The narrator, Emma Powell, is as usual splendid.

    "Good introduction to our favorite exorcist"

    Has all the ingredients that make the other Merrily books great character studies and ghostly wanderings....only shorter.

    "Not a real book, a short story"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who likes very short stories.


    Has The House of Susan Lulham turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not enough scenes.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The House of Susan Lulham?

    Too short as it was.


    Any additional comments?

    Is this Phil Rickman's publisher trying to cash in??

    Emma Powell was great.
