Regular price $13.50 Sale

England in the 1630s - an unsettled country in turbulent times. People are gripped by fear: fear of crime, of foreign invasion, of Catholic conspiracies, of the vagrant poor. In a town in Northern England, a group of Puritan reformers tightens its hold on the lives of the inhabitants. John Brigge is the local coroner, a respected man who wants nothing more than to work his farm and be with his wife, now expecting their first child. But when he is called to investigate an infanticide, Brigge finds himself drawn unwillingly into a vicious power struggle. Katherine Shay, a fiery Irishwoman, stands accused of killing her baby. The Puritan faction demands her immediate execution. Brigge suspects their haste has little to do with justice. What are they hiding? Does he really want to know? Against a background of looming crisis, Brigge struggles between his desire to protect his family and the need to see justice done. And he is haunted by the mystery of Katherine Shay. This 2004 Bloomsbury (UK) Paperback is in Very Good condition.
