Scarlet Widow

First in a new series from Graham Masterton starring the apothecary's daughter Beatrice ScarletLondon 1750 Beatrice Scarlet is the apothecary's daughter She can mix medicines and herbs to save the lives of her neighbours but try as she might she can't save the lives of her par. This is a superb historical horror fiction which I loved Graham Masterton is an expert writer in incorporating suspense and laying the groundwork for an intricately plotted thriller The story takes place in the 18th century and revolves around Beatrice who practices the art of the apothecary learnt from her fatherHer father was a renowned and gifted apothecary who carried out extraordinary research ably assisted by Beatrice He fell apart and took to drink when his wife died and Beatrice did all the work His murder meant the young Beatrice went to Birmingham to live with her Cousin Sarah She comes to marry Francis a pastor who moves them to New Hampshire They have a young son Noah and are happy However gruesome and macabre acts start taking place and there is talk of demons Satan and witches The villagers are terrified of the growing evil and wickedness and begin to accede to the demands of a sinister Jonathon Shooks to give a large portion of their land to keep a demon happy Francis is murdered in a particularly horrific manner echoing a biblical scene after he set off to follow Jonathon Beatrice has her suspicions that this is not the work of the devil but of human origin She begins to investigate in a subtle and behind the scenes way Francis s murder makes her determined to find out what is going on and avenge his death It is her knowledge as an apothecary that really helps her get closer to the truth She and her son are also in mortal danger as the forces she faces are without mercy and ruthless Beatrice is a worthy charismatic and courageous heroine in times when it is difficult for women to be like her She is clever compassionate and well connected in the community She does however pay a heavy price in pursuing the perpetratorsThis is an atmospheric and well constructed novel that weaves a spell of compelling suspense The historical descriptions show that the author engaged in meticulous research I understand that this is the first in a series I look forward to the next one Many thanks to Head of Zeus for an ARC via netgalley

E work of Satan but Beatrice Scarlet suspects the hands of men As she closes in on the killer she must act uickly to unmask him or become the next victim herselfOne of the most original and frightening storytellers of our time PETER JAMESOne of the few true masters JAMES HERBE. Ugh This was almost a DNF for me but I have to admit Masterton has created an interesting enough main character an apothecaries daughter and enough tension that you can t help but skim to the end to find out who the devil is However be warned This is a horror author And it shows There is little of emotion in the book few between characters and lots of horrific murders in gory detail Perhaps most disturbing is a graphic rape scene near the end It made little sense to me Especially since the love scenes between husband and wife were mediocre at best Why make the rape scene the most graphic What does this say about the author and what he thinks women want to read So I don t recommend this Only read if you like horror and gore and can handle that kind of treatment of women Glad this was a library book
