I had seened this story on TV and wanted to learn more about it. I liked the way the author would weave the history of witches in Salem into the story. It was interesting to learn that Laurie Cabot, the Official Witch of Salem, gave an accurate psychic prediction in this case.

The book was interesting and not your usual true crime novel. I enjoyed reading the history it contains about the Salem witch trials. At times I found the book a bit draggy and found myself thinking " Ok lets get on with it." I am glad I read it being a history and true crime lover.

This book was interesting, and sad at the same time. I would recommend if you are interested in real crime stories.
