I don't think I have enjoyed a book as much in a very long time. I could not put it down. Narrator is impeccable. The story masterfully written. Characters all uniquely crafted. This is my first McCammon book, but not my last. A must read.
This was a very pleasant book. It's is a murder mystery with a twist. It's not like other murder mysteries that I have read or listen to. Trust me this book is great from story to character development.
The story is very well written with a variety of complex characters and sub plots. The detail the author gives regarding the descriptions of everything from the clothing to food to the illnesses which were present during this time in history make the read so interesting. There is ample historical detail that you can easily find yourself present with the characters before you realize it's just a book. Great mysteries are woven with many of the characters. The narrator is incredible. He is masterful in his ability to fully distinguish voices and nuisances with each character. I will be reading all of the Matthew books!
Repetitive and monotonous. For the first time in over 300 audio books I skipped five hours in the middle and missed nothing. The narrator's voice was, for the most part, flat and inflectionless. The story was predictable.
Full Time Business Manager and mom to 5 boys and 1 girl, in every spare minute I have I'm reading or listening. I LOVE AUDIBLE
Worth a credit definitely. Not what I usually listen to, historical mystery. But so so so good!! Stop checking reviews and download it.
I would recommend this book to anyone who liked historical novels or anyone who liked a good mystery. This novel was written wonderfully it grabbed you from chapter 1 and never let you go until the very end. Matthew Corbett is a wonderful character, and I can not wait to read the rest of the novels in this series.
This was an excellent book in every way. The narration was beyond excellent. He was wonderful with the voices of all even the Indians.
The story was a bit long and I wanted him to get the girl in the end but the story was great. It tells about the superstitions of people no matter what time or age. They go with a spot of gossip and before you no it, someone is a witch. Even thou you no there is no such of a thing. Rumors can get so big that no one really has an idea what is really going on. Doesn't matter if it's 2015 or 1699. We will always be the same. Our evil ways will always be our downfall.
I listen to a lot of audio books and I would rate this one of the best so far. The story was clever and interesting, characters interesting and witty. The plot made you play detective to listen for clues. The reader was excellent and the writing outstanding. I love historical fiction and this one was a great listen!

Integrity wins out
Matthew because he persevered in his search for the truth and for justice
Matthew's reactions upon waking up to find the Indian shaman caring for him.
The price of freedom
Very well-written and engaging but not a pleasant read
