Testament of a Witch

By (author) Douglas Watt

Scotland, late seventeeth century. A young woman is accused of witchcraft. Tortured with pins and sleep deprivation, she is using all of her the Scottish witch-hunt began. Probably more than a thousand men and women were exectued for witchcraft before the frenzy died down.When Edinburgh-based Advocate John MacKenzie and his assistant Davie Scougall investigate the suspicious death of a woman denounced as a witch, they find themselves in a village overwhelmed by superstition, resentment and puritanical religion. In a time of spiritual, political and social upheaval, will reason allow MacKenzie to reveal the true evil lurking in the town, before the witch-hunt claims yet another victim?Testament of a Witch is the second in the John MacKenzie series, following on from Death of a Chief.
