Reporter Eric Braden is asked by his News Editor to write some articles on unsolved murder cases for their newspaper. Choosing the case of a man murdered in rural England with a pitch-fork, and whose body was found surrounded by pagan symbolism, Eric Braden sets off on his task and so begins a dark murder mystery involving witchcraft and strange locals in two rural communities. (All of whom could be extras in one of those old Hammer Horror movies!)
Narrator Barnaby Edwards does a great job at reading this story and he manages the various accents in a convincing style as the story unfolds and is told from various points of view as the backstory of the original murder is explained in second-hand narratives.
The Evil Therof is a murder mystery full of intrigue, red herrings and misdirection... along with the supernatural elements that give this story a dark tone. There is, of course, the obligatory twist at the end too.
Overall I found this audiobook to be an enjoyable listen that kept me interested until the end.
