They said the killings were the word of Satan. But Beatrice Scarlet, the apothecary's daughter, detects the hands of men... New Hampshire, 1756: The god-fearing farmers of Sutton are suffering divine punishment for unknown sins. Crops fail, cows die and fish are poisoned by their water. Six pigs, slaughtered in their sty, bear the mark of the devils in their mouths. But to Beatrice Scarlet, the apothecary's daughter, the truth is much more chilling. Somewhere in this idyllic hamlet, a killer is hiding in plain sight. And if Beatrice does not unmask him soon, he'll be coming for her next...

'The characters are very well crafted, with Beatrice emerging as a fantastic new female protagonist ... A promising new series' New Books Magazine. 'Fun, fresh and intriguing' The Bookseller. 'A superb piece of historical horror. Graham Masterton is an expert at combining suspense with laying the groundwork for an intricately plotted thriller' Crime Review. 'Plenty of shocks and surprises ... Beatrice is a very strong character and I loved her scientific approach to explaining all the strange events in her life - she's like a scientific 18th-century Miss Marple. I will definitely be looking out for the next book in the Beatrice Scarlet series' 4/5, The Book Magnet. 'From the first page you get a feeling that this book is like nothing you've read before, and nothing like anything you'll read in the near future. Graham Masterton has perfected an eerie start that gets you intrigued right from the get go ... It's so fast-paced and never once misses a beat nor does it ever let-up on the speed' Published Moments. 'A skilfully written and wonderfully unnerving thriller' Bookshelf Butterfly.
