Neil K. Wootton

In an age of superstition, can reason find the truth?

It is 1645 and England is at war with itself. Whilst the forces of parliament and the king fight for supremacy, another terror stalks the fenlands of England. This is the age of the witch-finders.

When a rich widow is accused of witchcraft, Sir Richard Easeby - lawyer and rationalist - is called to defend her. As he peels away the layers of lust, jealousy and greed, a darker truth begins to emerge. Is everything quite as it appears, or might other, more deadly forces be at work?

Easeby is in a race against time to discover the truth, and it is not just a woman's life at stake; it is his own reputation and the very foundations of reason itself.

The author was born in Leicester in 1965. His fondest childhood memories are of strikes, glam-rock and power-cuts. He studied philosophy and politics at Warwick University, a degree that teaches very little other than how to question the unquestionable to annoying effect. After a long career questioning the unquestionable to annoying effect in the financial services industry, he applied an abrupt handbrake turn in 2020 to become an author. He writes because it is the only thing, he is really any good at. He currently lives between Lancashire and South West France with his wife and two Jack Russell terriers. When not writing, he enjoys testing the patience of his friends and family and arching a sardonic eyebrow at the World. Purge is his debut novel.
