A dead body, covered with ritual carvings is found on the salt flats where local legend says the escaped Salem Witches came to hide, leads the investigators to the first step of a long and twisting path through the troubled history of the small town of Exmouth. What a history it is! Shipwrecks, racism, Witchcraft, starvation, mass murder; it’s all hidden deep beneath the granite facade of the myth of New England. Together Pendergast and Constance tease out the details by coming to know the town, and more importantly, it’s inhabitants. The townsfolk are all well drawn and believable, with just the right undertow of secrecy and menace. It’s impossible to divulge much more of the plot without dropping spoilers, but I can tell you that like the old sports cliche, “It’s not over till it’s over.”
