In a small New England town, several women have been targeted by a secret society of witch hunters. Inspired by generations of superstition, these witch hunters are convinced that witches are evil-and must be destroyed. But who is the real source of evil? The girls born with unique talents for healing as well as harm? Or the "normal" humans who murder them? "Ed Gorman writes like a dream even when he's recounting nightmares. His fiction grips, entertains, and resonates in memory long after you close his books." (Dean Koontz)… (més)

While I enjoyed this book, I wasn't quite as into it as I thought I would be. The premise is simple: witches exist and so do witch hunters. Witches have powers to heal, move things, and start fires; the witch hunters track down witches and kill them. Very much like the Salem Witch Trials but based on some aspect of reality rather than a hoax to get revenge on neighbors. The book was extremely solid with the story revealed in a straight forward but touching manner. It was almost sensitive, very different from THE POKER CLUB and much of his writing. The part that I had problem on though was the actions driving the story. Most of them are based on a fragile lie, especially for the witch hunters, and that lie had no real reason to stay held. Plus the witches all seem to exhibit great power once captured by the hunters but then in day-to-day life, they show nothing at all. And finally the ending seemed rushed and yet slow to arrive. None of these were enough to destroy the pleasure of the read but it is sort of like the book was edited down in size a wee bit too much. ( )
