Publisher's Summary

Following the hypnosis of a violently disturbed psychiatric patient, Ruby Dean, an unholy dark force was unleashed on the medical staff who tried to help her. Now only one of the original team remains - Ward Sister, Becky. Despite her fiancé, D.I. Ross, being unconscious and many of her colleagues either dead or critically ill, Becky is determined to rescue Ruby's 12-year-old daughter from a similar fate to that of her mother.

But no one asking questions in the desolate mining village Ruby descends from ever comes to a good end. And as the diabolical history of the area is gradually revealed, it seems the evil invoked is now both real and contagious.

Don't turn the lights out yet!

Really Horrific Plot, Mediocre Writing

If you enjoy psychological horror, this book really fits the bill. The premise and plotting is superb and really chilling. The writing is what needs work. S.E. England would benefit greatly from a better editor.

A dark horror series well worth your time.

This is book 2. You need to read Father of Lies first. If you enjoy dark occult horror novels and you can deal with difficult subject matter, I would highly recommend this series.
This series takes place in a small English village and surrounding areas. It follows a mentally ill woman who has been ritually abused by satanists and is in a psychiatric unit. The nurse and doctor who care for her investigate her town and what is happening their and find many satanic forces, including people in high standing and in leadership positions.
Who can they trust?
Now a preteen young girl is in danger of being sacrificed in a ritual on her upcoming birthday and the small group of healthcare workers and detectives will try and put a stop to all this abuse.
The narrator does a good job at creating different voices for the characters and reading this story. She reads pretty quickly, sometimes I have to speed up a narrator because they read to slow for me, but this narrator reads at a perfect speed for me.
The final book just came out and will be on audio in January from what I have heard. I really liked both these books and I highly recommend them.

Incredible Sequel: Scary and Well-Written

This is the continued story of Ruby, the young woman in her late twenties, plagued with dissociative identity disorder AND the gift (or curse) of heightened clairvoyance. At the end of the last novel, perspective switched and relied heavily on Becky, one of Ruby's nurses in her early forties. After the trouble prior, Becky has to find a way to combat the forces that have been attacking her colleagues, friends, and herself. With the medical community unhelpful, as well as the police, Becky has to rely on herself, new friends, and some colleagues to right the wrongs happening around her before it's too late...

I LOVE Sarah England! After this sequel, she has become my favorite author of contemporary horror novels. I cannot believe how exquisitely well-written this book is and the flawless meneuvering between points of view is incredible. A lot of sequels (no matter the genre) tend to lag a little in the middle and I'm happy to say that 'Tanner's Dell' is just as amazing as 'Father of Lies.' This book also takes the scary and fear-inducing story of the first book and cranks it up even more. In my review for 'Father of Lies,' I compared the horror factor of England's books to the real life stories of Ed and Lorraine Warren (Conjuring movies AND a ton of books written about them). Honestly, 'Tanner's Dell' is scarier than anything I've read about the Warrens and that is saying something, since the Warrens are real people.

If you liked, enjoyed, or loved the first book (or you like horror), READ THIS. It is one of the most incredible voices to come out of the horror genres. Also, I know I will get a lot of "non-helpful" votes, because people tend to press that button when they don't agree, but throw Stephen King in the garbage and read a real scary book.

A+ for the story and an A+ for the performance. I know that I said that I wasn't a huge fan of Ms. Meire in the last book, but she really does tell the story beautifully in this one.

Second Thrill to a Fantastic Trilogy!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I'd absolutely recommend this entire trilogy to anyone who likes to get creeped out.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There are some many great, detailed characters. I love Ruby, Celeste, and Rebecca.

Perfect Horror Series!

I pre-ordered this second book from the series as soon as I finished the first 'Father of Lies' and haven't been disappointed!

Terrifying from the get go it was as much a hook as the first book in the series for me.

My idea of a true horror story is one in which I can believe. I am a believer of this type of occult, bump in the night frightmare and have devoured both first and second acts and cannot wait to see what the third brings.

Excellent story, well read. BOOM!

Dialect coaching required

Great story but was distracted by the appalling ‘Yorkshire’ accents.
Please give the narrator dialect lessons.

A great trilogy

I have read all three books now and thoroughly enjoyed all three. Gripping and although quite graphic, not unnecessarily so. Well worth a listen. Kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. Narration very good indeed.

A good second installment

I really enjoyed this second book in the trilogy. It has moments of real discomfort and makes you think about what might be going on out there. It skilfully rides a fine line between fact and fantasy.

Meire reads well although she pronounces the odd, commonly used word in a strange way, which pulled me out of the story each time. Otherwise though, a good performance.

Appalling narration.

I have no idea, sadly, if the story itself is any good, because Henrietta Meire totally destroys it with her comedy regional accents which seem to be based on episodes of "The Fast Show" from the early 90s (which she often forgets she's supposed to be doing half-way through a sentence), and her inability to read aloud in anything like an engaging manner, sounding by turns bland, toneless and unaware of the context. It sounds like she's reading an instruction book to someone assembling an Ikea wardrobe in an adjoining room. Other than that, brilliant!
