AN author has published a new book set in Rutland.

The Dealer and The Devil, by Rex Merchant, is set on the shores of Rutland Water.

The plot follows the strange goings on after a disused vicarage is turned into a psychic college.

There is a suspicious drowning in the reservoir, devil worship and necromancy affect the area and an ancient relic is stolen from the churchyard.

The book is priced at £9 and is available from Rex directly at 89 West Road, Oakham, or by e-mailing rexmerchant@btinternet.com. It can also be ordered from local book shops.
