Some words can kill.
Germany, 1507. In a time when famine is rife and panic spreading, people resort to desperate measures in order to survive.
When a visiting friar suggests that witchcraft is to blame for their failing crops, Irmeltrud sees an opportunity to get ride of her burdensome mother-in-law, Gude. Frustrated with having to feed the old woman who brings nothing to the table, she is quick to point the dreaded finger of suspicion.
Gude has three days to clear her name, or be led to the stake... Vividly imagined, haunting and unforgettable, The Witch's Trinity beautifully illuminates a dark period of history.

"A stunning debut...viscerally scary, gripping and written in beautiful, sparce prose, it's a seriously good read."
(Sainsbury's Magazine, Book of the Month)
"Not for the faint-hearted, Mailman ratchets up the tension and the images of torture as Gude fights to escape a horrendous fate. Gripping."
(Marie Claire)
