Title: The Death Pit
Description: London, Doubleday. 1999, First Edition. (ISBN: 0385408730). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from usual age toning to page edges) with Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. 351 pages. When young academic Terry Williams goes to a remote corner of the Scottish Highlands, she's simply intending to edit the letters of Catherine McCulloch, tortured and burnt as a witch in the 17th century. Then the body of a young woman is found on a local farm, dumped in the death pit amidst a pile of rotting pigs. She is Donna Fairhead, one of a nearby community of Wiccans - modern day witches. As forensic excavation of the death pit throws up yet more horrors, Terry's work on the letters reveals that there may have been more to Catherine's death than anyone had ever imagined. And as the present-day death toll mounts, Terry realises that the identity of the killer may also be part of a three-centuries-old mystery, a mystery whose next victim might well be herself. S. Near Fine/Fine.
