The first new novel in a decade from New York Times bestselling horror novelist Robert R. McCammon. The people of Fount Royal, a small Carolina settlement, think there's a witch among them. The citizens are convinced that Rachel Howarth--a beautiful, independent widow of Portuguese descent--has cursed the town. Magistrate Isaac Woodward and Matthew Corbett travel to Fount Royal to hold the witch trial. The evidence spells doom for Rachel: witch's tools are found in her home and witnesses swear they've seen her commit unspeakable acts with the Devil himself. But Matthew's lingering doubts about her guilt lead him to discover that quite a few people would benefit from Rachel's death. Can he save her from a grisly end at the hands of the bloodthirsty citizens of Fount Royal?Críticas:
"An excellent story, full of tension and suspense."
"No one can paint word pictures as vividly as Robert McCammon, and never has his palette had such depth as in Speaks the Nightbird."
"A decade's hiatus has done nothing to dull McCammon's abilities as a storyteller or a literary craftsman...Will keep readers glued to the pages."
