The Devil's Apprentice, Paperback


Faced with the austerities of a bitterly cold English winter, the theatre is deserted and Westfield s Men find themselves out of work.

Fortuitously, the company is invited to perform at a country home in Essex; welcome news to the disgruntled players.

The company decides it s the perfect opportunity to trial their new play "The Witch of Colchester."However, when the group s leading actor begins to fall mysteriously ill, the company fear witchcraft might be involved.

Then on the performance night, an audience member inexplicably collapses and dies, paving the way for Nicholas Bracewell to uncover the cause of the strange events taking place in Silvermere."
