    1. Sharon Bolton takes us into her northern home territory, Lancashire, inhospitable, unpredictable, often savage, horrifying, but heartbreakingly and wonderfully beautiful. She draws on the areas history of witches with the Pendle witch trials, folklore, legend, and its fear and macabre treatment of intelligent women who dare to be different. Set in Sabden, a town on the edge of Pendle Hill, Bolton combines these themes to give us an outstanding story with elements of horror, the darkest of arts a [...]

    2. This may be the best book Ms Bolton has written to date. It is CERTAINLY the creepiest keep you up all night subtly scary novel I have read in a long time.Set in the 70’s and later on the cusp of the new millennium, the story follows Florence, a policewoman in a small northern town where children are disappearing. Their fate becomes intertwined with her fate and Sharon Bolton weaves a tense and deeply atmospheric tale around her characters and her location.I don’t think that last line will s [...]

    3. Beware the witch. In Pendle, myth has it that women are baptised twice: once in the traditional fashion, then again in the local waters of the tarn to a much darker master but is it witchcraft behind the live burials of three teenagers?This is the question WPC Florence Lovelady is investigating, first in 1969 during their original disappearance and discovery, then again today. Her rather challenging experience as police during that period, in a very male dominated arena, is amusing and frustrati [...]

    4. I've read a few Sharon Bolton novels, and this is one of her best. Blending a fast-paced crime thriller with a sinister tale of witchcraft in 1960s Lancashire, it's a little of reminiscent of The Wicker Man. In 1999, police officer Florence Lovelady returns to the small Lancastrian town where she began her career, for the funeral of the infamous coffin maker Larry Glassbrook, who died in prison. She helped bring him to justice back in 1969, for burying children alive. But when she returns to the [...]

    5. Thoroughly entertaining and distinctly chilly crime fiction with that extra special certain something that we expect from the wonderful Sharon Bolton. An engrossing read.

    6. 4.5/5 for sure - I might revise that, only just finished it. Dark, spooky and maybe a little odd at times but very powerful writing and I love Flossie as a character. Not certain the end worked for me at present but will reflect on that. Without doubt one of the "best of the year" ones for me. Full review nearer publication

    7. On the hottest day of the year, Assistant Commissioner Florence Lovelady attends the funeral of Larry Glassbrook, the convicted murderer she arrested thirty years earlier. A master carpenter and funeral director, Larry imprisoned his victims, alive, in the caskets he made himself. Clay effigies found entombed with their bodies suggested a motive beyond the worst human depravity. What a brilliant read! I was gripped from the very first page and loved the characters and the weird and wonderful sto [...]

    8. Exactly what I wanted from my first book of 2018. I loved the duel timelines (late 60s and late 90s which both delivered different retro appeal) and the creepy but not too creepy setting. The main character as the first female cop on the beat added a refreshing twist to the story and the author did well in not overplaying the feminist angle. The story was suspenseful and fast paced with a decent number of twists and turns.

    9. Utterly brilliant. One of my favourite Sharon Bolton books and I love them all. Sharon is brilliant at creating characters that you really care about and then ripping your heart out. So chilling and clever and awesome.

    10. On the face of it, "The Craftsman" is a crime thriller about a serial killer who preys upon teenagers, burying them alive. However, there is a lot more to this novel than that. Set in Pendle, where Bolton comes from, she states in a 'letter' to the reader at the beginning of the novel that she wanted to write a book about women and witches; particularly why women become witches. Without giving anything away, she certainly manages to illustrate within this novel why some women may be persecuted, [...]

    11. 30 years after convicting him for a series of child murders, Assistant Commissioner Florence Lovelady returns to Sabden, a town forever in the shadow of the infamous Pendle Hill, to attend Larry Glassbrook’s funeral and finally put the past to rest. But returning to the scene of the crime turns out not to be so simple for Florence, and as history starts to repeat itself she finds herself forced to confront the fear that has been at the back of her mind for decades: did she get the wrong man?I [...]

    12. Wow, now this is a thriller I have been waiting for for 2018. It packs a punch right from the beginning till the very end. Set in two time lines, 1960 and 1999. Newbie Florence joins the police force and set straight to looking for three missing teens from the area. Nothing is as it seems because this was never going to be a straight forward case, not when the history of witches from Pendle Hill come in to it. After a very sucsessful career, Florence returns to where the murders happened to atte [...]

    13. This book has everything and then a little more thrown in as well!The story is told through Florence Lovelady (flossy) and is on two timelines 1969 and 1999, Flossy was a young PC and was involved in looking for missing and murdered teenagers in 1969, what she encountered at that time never leaves her and she has returned to the area for the funeral of the man convicted of the crimes. She can't help herself looking round the town and revisiting the house where she was boarding at the time which [...]

    14. have not had the pleasure of Sharon Bolton's amazing crime novels yet I feel silly. 30 years after the disappearance and discovery of teenagers bodies in coffins. The young constable having earned her stripes on the case returns to Lancashire to see the burial of the offender. The story goes back to 1969, where we follow the crimes as they unfold after girl number 3 goes missing.Set in the shadows of Pendle Hill, the disturbance of graves and the history surrounding the place it seems many peopl [...]

    15. A gripping thriller which does not disappoint. It keeps you guessing to the very end and had a brilliant twist. Highly recommended. Based near Pendle it contains witchy stuff which is quite scary. Do not miss this one
