Familiar Spirits

By Leonard Tourney

Three innocents stand accused of sorcery and soon no one is safe…

The town of Chelmsford is going mad with the frenzy of witch hunting. Neighbours accuse one another with no cause, hysterical at the sudden death of a townsman and sightings of an apparition of a dead young woman. County Constable Matthew Stock, a humble clothier by trade, and his practical-minded wife Joan must set things right.

As the village becomes inflamed with terror, Matthew cleverly begins to piece together a deceptively simple tale of innocence and guilt, heaven and hell, to reveal the long-hidden secrets behind the strange bewitchings…
