'A gripping, well-told story of faith and truth.' -- Khaled Hosseini, bestselling author of The Kite Runner 'Gripping debut' -- Elle 'Mailman generates a real sense of dread for Gude's fate ... One of Mailman's ancestors was accused of witchcraft in 1600s New England, which adds piquancy to the plot ... Mailman creditably forces the pace, giving the snouty friar pride of place in an unusual denouement.' -- Financial Times 'Not for the faint-hearted, Mailman ratchets up the tension and the images of torture as Gude fights to escape an horrendous fate. Gripping.' -- Marie Claire 'This terrifying, gripping novel shows how desperation spawns wickedness.' -- The Times 'Beautifully executed' -- Historical Novels Review 'This is a stunning debut... Viscerally scary, gripping and written in beautiful, sparse prose, it's a seriously good read' -- Sainsbury's magazine 'A centuries-old tale with modern resonance' -- Guardian
