Book Description

'VIVID AND TERRIFYING' Paula Hawkins, author of The Girl on the Train --This text refers to the paperback edition.


'A clever, pacey read that blends truth and fiction' * The Times * Beth Underdown grips us from the once a feminist parable and an old-fashioned, check-twice-under-the-bed thriller * Patrick Gale * Beth Underdown cleverly creates a compelling atmosphere of dread and claustrophobia... Even from the distance of nearly four hundred years, her Matthew Hopkins is a genuinely frightening monster * Kate Riordan, author of The Girl in the Photograph * THE MOST THRILLING HISTORICAL DEBUT OF 2018 Based on the true story of the infamous witchfinder Matthew Hopkins, with one of the most memorable heroines in recent historical fiction, this haunting novel is perfect for fans of The Miniaturist, Sarah Waters and The Essex Serpent. -- From the publisher Atmospheric and filled with foreboding, it's a novel that draws you under its spell * Stylist * 'Anyone who liked Cecilia Ekback's Wolf Winter is going to love this. [It's] about tiny braveries and small courage... a real David and Goliath story, but far less straightforward' * Natasha Pulley, author of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street * Entertaining and thought-provoking, with a valuable message for our own times * Washington Post * A chilling, creeping novel with parallels to more modern forms of witch-hunts * Red * Thumpingly good -- Lucy Mangan 'A clever novel with a slow burn of horror' * Guardian * 'An accomplished debut novel... this is a powerful, disturbing book, full of drama, with a masterly evocation of England in the 1640s and a sickening final twist' * Sunday Express * 'A compelling debut from a gifted storyteller' -- Sarah Perry * author of The Essex Serpent * A richly told and utterly compelling tale, with shades of Hilary Mantel -- Kate Hamer 'Superb: dark, terrifying and utterly compelling' -- Tracy Borman A haunting, brooding debut * Psychologies * 'Alice's voice reaches us with admirable clarity and she tells a truly horrifying story with compassion and intelligence. This is a truly accomplished and satisfying debut novel' -- Adele Geras A novel for our times. Beth Underdown's The Witchfinder's Sister explores another time and another place to lay bare the visceral horror of what a witch hunt truly is * New York Times Book Review * A tense, surprising and elegantly-crafted novel * Ian McGuire * Chilling, gripping, terrifying and exquisitely written * Susan Barker * --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
