Set seven years on from the Salem witch trials, a magistrate and his clerk travel to a beleaguered and failing Carolina colony to try the case of a suspected witch. Its a 17th century whodunit; fast paced and thoroughly engaging.
There are gruesome murders, hidden treasure and a cast of shady well drawn suspects. It's a tale of greed, lost innocence and the search for truth and justice conducted almost single handedly by the main protagonist, Matthew the clerk. As a reader I changed my mind about who the real culprit or culprits at the heart of the many strange and disturbing events in the settlement might be but I was, pleasingly, kept guessing throughout.
I really enjoyed reading this. A really well written page turner and happy to recommend to anyone who likes a good tale.
