Additional Info

In this powerful retelling of the tale of Medea set in the first half of the twentieth century in Nigro's Pendragon County, Ohio, Jason Cornish returns from the First World War with a beautiful Italian wife with a dark past who may or may not be a witch. He's come to reclaim his inheritance from those who've stolen it from him, and to come to terms with the local girl who betrayed him with his best friend. The series of deaths that result create a complex puzzle that John Bellezzi, the town Sheriff, must attempt to sort out. As he works his way deeper into the enigma, peeling away layers as he goes, he finds himself confronted by a powerful, brilliant and passionate woman whose secrets are the key to the mystery.
