Thrice cursed. Thrice bound. Thrice damned.

When the body of a famous television academic is discovered in Greenwich Park, carefully positioned beside a megalithic stone fountain and missing a hand, DI Declan Walsh and the team of the Last Chance Saloon find themselves not only involved in a case that connects to the supernatural, but one that also involves 17th century architects, Ley Lines and a secret, black market organisation that specialises in particular occult items; some that date all the way back to both Aleister Crowley and the Elizabethan Magician, Dr John Dee himself, and connected to his missing treasure.

But as the team hunt a killer, one that uses ritualistic locations and weapons to perform their murders, Declan will journey on a heretical treasure hunt through an underground pagan and spiritual subculture of witches, shamans, druids, magicians and heathens, a world of esoteric luncheons and virtual sabbats, and where curses are believed real, and the dead indeed talk…

…But is one of those dead voices that of his one-time love, Kendis Taylor?

The sixth book in a series of procedural crime thrillers featuring DI Walsh and the team of the Last Chance Saloon, A Ritual For The Dying is perfect for fans of J.D Kirk, L.J Ross, Ian Rankin, Damian Boyd, Alex Smith and Ann Cleeves, among others.
