Devil Play by Patrick Swain

Witchcraft only disappeared about 100 years ago, in that time technology has moved so fast it’s almost completely disappeared, only surviving in echoes and whispers of tradition. We’re used to sacrifices and candlelight rituals set historically, but what would drive someone to perform such a ritual today, what would that look like, and what happens when it works? 

So, on the first kitchen island in Wilmslow, the Cold War disappearing in the rearview mirror of her Rover 600, surrounded by frosted tips, wide jeans, and Pulp, Claire is about to perform her first sacrifice. She doesn’t know who she’s calling out to, but something is going to answer.
