Back in 1974, the dormant Irish village of Seacross is shocked by the gruesome circumstances of young Margaret Morehouse’s death. Forty-five years later history seems to repeat itself and the quiet life of the coastal Irish village is suddenly shaken by a series of ritualistic murders. Someone had broken the pact of secrecy to obtain justice, but if the truth comes out nobody will be spared, from the future Taoiseach to the local men of power.

I want to thank Emma at Damppebbles blog tours for inviting me on this tour and providing me with a copy of The Last Witch in exchange for an honest review.
A series of ritualistic murders, a small town and a cold case that is suddenly heating up. Can police officer Billy McCabe solve the mystery before he’s taken off the case?
The Last Witch is a combination of police procedural and psychological thriller set in the small Irish town of Seacross.
I enjoyed the setting of rural Ireland, I always love a small town setting where everybody seems to know everybody and there are always some tensions bubbling under the surface.
Police officer Billy McCabe was a little old-fashioned in his views, but a solid character nonetheless. His personality softened some by his wife Martha and adopted dog Rufus.
The book got off to a slow start, and I wondered where the story was going, but then the bodies started turning up and the mystery really started.
The Last Witch was a quick read with plenty of twists and turns along the way.
