An entertaining and suspenseful drama that is also a cautionary tale for our times. Boston Globe. This acclaimed history illuminates the horrifying episode of Salem with visceral clarity, from those who fanned the crisis to satisfy personal vendettas to the four-year-old witch chained to a dank prison wall in darkness till she went mad. Antonia Fraser called it a grisly read and an engrossing one.
