James Darke – Witches #4 The Escape

James Darke – Witches #4 The Escape (Sphere, 1984)

THE SHADOW OF FEAR

In a shattered time of Civil War and broken laws vultures like Robert Monk cast the shadow of their dank wings over England. The Witchfinder: the fiend in human form who guided the hands that held the branding irons, tied the cords and applied cruel tortures to the bodies of innocent men and women accused of witchcraft.

Monk had lost the slattern Eliza Hall and two of the brutal Mendoza brothers, slain by the avenging angel John Ferris – but Ferris’s former sweetheart had become Monk’s whore, and the barbarous Daniel Mendoza had sworn vengeance for his brothers’ deaths. The duel between Ferris and the devil’s men would be savage and grim – but what of the duel between Ferris and Mary, the maiden who had become a hound of hell?

Thanks to Steve Goodwin for the cover scan and blurb
