*Starred Review* What is even more terrifying than being trapped in a coffin? Realizing that you are not in it alone. Award-winning master of suspense Bolton manages to transform a campfire ghost story into a riveting novel. Florence Lovelady, now the top female police official in the UK, returns to a small village in Lancashire for the funeral of a coffin-maker she convicted of three child murders 30 years ago. The victims were buried alive. She is faced with new evidence that suggests the prospect of a copycat killer on the loose, or the sickening possibility that she got the wrong man. Bolton is known for folding in elements of the supernatural, and "uncanny" clearly defines this work. Witches and zombies abound, and it is left to the reader to decide if these characters are simply delusional or that this stuff is for real. (There is an added layer of real-life revulsion at the dismissive, if not downright abusive and misogynistic, treatment accorded Florence by her fellow officers back in the 1960s.) Each part of the book bears a Shakespearean quote as its epigraph, but lyrics from "You Do Something to Me" might have worked just as well: "Do do that voodoo that you do so well." Here's hoping for a series with more of Florence, and, please, the witches. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
