Publisher's Summary

Abraham Merritt's Burn, Witch, Burn! is like a detective novel masquerading as a dark fantasy novel. It’s a cross-genre experimentation from the late '20s blending horror, fantasy, and crime drama. 

An unfortunate neurologist named Dr. Lowell finds himself confronted with a series of mysterious deaths. Each victim falls into a state of paralysis before later convulsing and finally expiring, stiffening into an abrupt rigor mortis. Merritt weaves a mix of creeping dread, action, and mystery of animated, demonic, murderous toy dolls and gangsters on the loose in NYC. Of all the evil "living doll" stories, this weird tale is definitely the most original and frightening and supports a great super villainess character in the shape-changing monstrous Madame Mandilip. It's an unforgettable performance reading by Oscar-nominated makeup FX artist Edward E. French.

Outstanding witch tale with a sensational narrator

The right narrator can really make or break an audio book and this is a home run through and through

Atmosphere, atmosphere, atmosphere!

This book is all atmosphere and I love it. The author describes a thing in such a way that you can see it clearly while not wasting words. Every line was punchy. Clear simple sentences that built to a beautiful tapestry. The plot and story was simple enough, but played with detective and weird fiction tropes in a masterful way.
I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
I don't often comment on the narration in my reviews, but it must be said that this is one of the best readings of any book I have listened to on Audible.
