About this ebook

A chilling, gothic ghost story that delves into the dark past of the 16th century Essex witch trials.

To find the truth, she’ll risk her life…

Sadie Asquith has been fascinated by the Essex Witch Trials for as long as she can remember. And for good reason too: between 1560 and 1680, hundreds of innocent women were tried for witchcraft.

She begins researching the subject, but soon starts to experience strange, ghostly visions. Dark shadows haunt her every step, sobbing sounds wake her in the night, and black moths appear from nowhere.

It’s as if by digging up history, she has opened an unearthly connection to the women who were tortured and killed centuries before.

And when a long-buried secret entwines Sadie’s own past with what she has discovered, she’ll risk everything – even her life – to uncover what really happened all those years ago…

A haunting and atmospheric read that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Perfect for fans of The Lost Notebook and The Familiars.
