This is a creepy read. There's an author who writes about witch hunting long ago and whether they were guilty or not, most of them died. It turns into a current investigation when they find his wife dead, All of a sudden the awful deaths in the book start surfacing in current day Finland. There are no clues to tell them who's doing it.
Berkley and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you). It will be published October 27th.
They start searching everything and as they do, they come up with more victims. All of them killed in the in the same way as the book. They initially think the author was killed too, but that was a false lead. The man killed was not him.
They find themselves being manipulated by the killers. Everything they learn is being fed to them. This group is like a cult. Everyone listens to the old woman in charge and they feel no guilt for the murders. More people die, the lady cop is getting closer and closer to the truth, and she finds she's been betrayed.
This one will stick with you for a while after you put down. It's a story of evil and there are a lot of participants. If you like scaring yourself, this is a good read for that!
