it was amazing

Set in colonial era north America, a society rich in superstition and inequality, magistrate's clerk Matthew Corbett attempts to prove the innocence of a woman accused of witchcraft. In the process he uncovers a deadly conspiracy amid the fear-ridden and benighted Carolina colony of Fount Royal. Veteran author Robert McCammon delivers a wonderfully crafted entry into the historical detective cannon distinguished by lyrical prose that perfectly captures the atmosphere of the period. Highly recommended.
