The Midnight Man
by Paul Doherty
A ‘Canterbury Tales’ medieval mystery
As Chaucer’s pilgrims shelter for the night in a well-stocked tavern, it’s the physician’s turn to enthral his fellow travellers with a terrifying tale of mystery and intrigue.
When Brother Anselm and his novice Stephen are summoned to the Church of St Michael’s, Candlewick, to perform an exorcism, little are they prepared for the horror that awaits. The demons and apparitions that plague the church would appear to have been summoned by an infamous sorcerer known as the Midnight Man. But what has he unwittingly unleashed – and why? Is someone using the haunting as the perfect cover for their murderous intent? And is there any link with the sudden disappearances of a number of young women in the area?
The answers lie in the past and an unresolved wickedness from many decades before. But before Anselm can get to the truth, he must uncover the identity of the mysterious Midnight Man.

“Despite the number of balls in the air Doherty drops nary a one as he provides another intriguing look at the past through the lens of a murder inquiry”
