    When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play in his small Bavarian town. When more children disappear and an orphan is found dead with the same mark, the mounting hysteria threatens to erupt. Before the unrest forces him to torture and execute the woman who aided in the birth of his children, Jakob must unravel the truth.

    Story

    I loved this story when I read and listened to it in German. I think the story retains its interest in English but the translation is a bit lack-luster. The narrator has a great voice and reading style but seems somehow more suited to American history than German in 1659.

    Your little sister could have written this book when she was in the 7th grade.
