This is good news for Rachel Howarth, the alleged witch, but not such good news for the young clerk himself.

The year is 1703.

The journey begins when Matthew, now an apprentice problem solver for the London-based Herrald Agency, accepts an unusual and hazardous commission. Who snuffed out the good man's life with the slash of a blade on a midnight street? Corbett is a young man determined to see the world with his own set of eyes. He is the author of fourteen horror and fantasy novels and short stories- and nearly all of them were published in the period between 1978 and 1998.

Mr. McCammon is currently hard at work on The King of Shadows, the next Matthew Corbett book. He’ll leave time for a Q&A. The place: The Carolina settlement of Charles Town. Robert R. McCammon, Narrated by: Piecing together the truth, he has no choice but to vanquish a force more malevolent than witchcraft in order to save his beloved Rachel - and free Fount Royal from the menace claiming innocent lives.

The year is 1703, and Matthew Corbett, professional "problem solver", is missing. His next novel, Speaks the Nightbird, was more of an historical-fiction/mystery than fantasy/horror book.
