David Pinner’s ‘Ritual’ was the inspiration for the classic cult movie, ‘The Wicker Man’.
‘The Wicca Women’ is its explosive sequel.
Thirty years ago a young girl was found murdered in a sleepy Cornish village, and her death was the trigger for a spree of other killings.
The rest of the children have now grown up, and are still living in the same Pagan village.
But they have become as disturbed, frenzied, and often as dangerous as their deceased parents.
They still follow age-old sacrificial rituals to bring peace and prosperity to their lives.
But are the adults, who witnessed horrors in their childhood, now corrupting the next generation?
Into their midst comes the lithesome and mysterious, Lulu, who is determined to save the village.
But death, mayhem and terror follow in her wake.
And on Millennium Eve, ‘The Wicca Woman’ comes to its terrifying ritualistic and sacrificial climax.
But is this only the horrific beginning of what is yet to come…?
Praise for Ritual:
‘Ritual’s opulent dialogue, with the sickly richness of its countryside, and Pinner’s decaying village, can stand alone from the book’s illustrious successor. But, be warned, like The Wicker Man, it is quite likely to test your dreams of leaving the city for a shady nook by a babbling brook.’ – The Guardian
