Publisher's Summary

A respected surgeon and rare book collector is brutally murdered in his elegant Manhattan home, just hours after showing a book dealer the fifteenth-century manual of black magic - a grimoire - he'd received from a grateful patient. Now the healer's blood is everywhere - and only the priceless grimoire is missing.

The horrific death of her beloved father has shattered Beatrice O'Connell's quiet, sane, and orderly world. Only by tracking down the vanished malevolent tome - with its dark spell and salacious illustrations - can she hope to put things right. But the search is leading Beatrice, her ex-husband, and a mysterious occultist into an expanding labyrinth of powerful evils, a tangled web that reaches as far as the Vatican itself. What coveted secrets are hidden in the missing volume that threaten to turn Beatrice into precisely what her unseen and unrelenting enemies are determined to destroy?

    Story
    "Dramatically different and disturbing..."
    Would you listen to The Witches' Hammer again? Why?

    No. It was quite lengthy with a lot of detail that could have been eliminated to make the story more compact and stronger.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Cut out some of the extra sub-plots.


    What about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance did you like?

    Her narration made it easy to follow each character. She changed her voice just enough to make it easy to recognize each person.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was uncomfortable with the part when Count Borzami forced Beatrice to perform a sexual act before he would give her information. This act didn't seem like a realistic one for Beatrice's character.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was definitely different.
