First in a new series from Graham Masterton starring the apothecary's daughter Beatrice ScarletLondon 1750 Beatrice Scarlet is the apothecary's daughter She can mix medicines and herbs to save the lives of her neighbours but try as she might she can't save the lives of her par 25 stars This would have been 35 stars but I m docking a whole star from this book because of the rape scene which I will talk about later When I picked up Scarlet Widow I was expecting something a lot milder something along the lines of a mild historical mystery I probably should have done research especially on the author before I read this This is an author who has a history of writing horror and that became obvious as I read this book There were some very gruesome murders This is definitely not for the sueamish The things I liked about the book were it kept me glued to it from the first page the protagonist was a strong intelligent person and it kept me guessing throughout most of it There was something about the writing style that kept me turning the pages I found Beatrice to be very likable and intelligent and her interest in her father s profession was one part of the book I really enjoyed For a girl back in the 1700s Bea was an independent thinker I liked reading about Bea s past with her parents in London and I found the part with her relatives interesting too although they were not ideal That part with her crazy uncle was shocking and weird and personally I think it could have been left out of the book completely as it didn t really seem to fitAfter Bea immigrated to America the mystery behind what was happening to the townspeople kept me guessing for a long time Not the part Jonathan Shooks played that was obvious but who or what was behind the whole thing Was Bea right about it being a person behind it all or were the townspeople right that it was a demon or Satan himself Logic says that Bea is right but I ve read enough supernatural type books to know that it isn t always the logical answer And if it is just a person then who Those were the uestions I kept asking myself The mysterious person in the brown cloak was an easier mystery to figure out I kept wondering if that person was who was behind the murders I m not going to say if it was or not though because of spoilersThe things I didn t like so much were the strict puritanical views of most of the people the superstitious beliefs of most of the people the lack of any real emotion or romance between Bea and Francis whom I didn t find very likable at times and the rape scene Superstitious Puritans do not always make for pleasant reading It s hard to believe that people could be so ignorant and superstitious but they can The Salem Witch Trials come to mind Also the way women were viewed really angered me Bea was such an intelligent woman and I had a hard time not being disappointed in who she chose to marry He was a good man but I think she would have thrived in a less puritanical setting I felt like her husband Francis was mostly boring and we really aren t given any reason why she fell in love with him Their whole courtship is skipped over Their scenes in bed as husband and wife are just the mechanics with no romance or real emotion I would have rather they had just been skipped over completely because they didn t add anything to the story This might sound sexist but I ve yet to read a romance scene written by a man that I ve liked That brings me to the rape scene The author couldn t craft a good love scene but he didn t have a problem writing all the awful details of a rape scene I don t know if that was done on purpose or just the way it ended up but it bothered me I ve read rape scenes in books before and they fit the story and were a part of the plot They didn t leave me as disturbed as this one did This rape was really unnecessary and I didn t want to read all the details of it It bothered me than the grisly murders did For the writer to put the main character through that after reading through over 80 percent of the book was just needless It did nothing for the story and felt like it was just put there for shock value I kept thinking someone would come and help her but no one did Where was the mysterious person in the brown cloak then I m sorry if anyone thinks this is a spoiler but I think potential readers need to know this is in the book Had I known I probably wouldn t have read this book It turns out that this is the first book in a series While I would kind of like to know what happens next in Bea s life view spoiler especially regarding Jeremy hide spoiler

E work of Satan but Beatrice Scarlet suspects the hands of men As she closes in on the killer she must act uickly to unmask him or become the next victim herselfOne of the most original and frightening storytellers of our time PETER JAMESOne of the few true masters JAMES HERBE Ugh This was almost a DNF for me but I have to admit Masterton has created an interesting enough main character an apothecaries daughter and enough tension that you can t help but skim to the end to find out who the devil is However be warned This is a horror author And it shows There is little of emotion in the book few between characters and lots of horrific murders in gory detail Perhaps most disturbing is a graphic rape scene near the end It made little sense to me Especially since the love scenes between husband and wife were mediocre at best Why make the rape scene the most graphic What does this say about the author and what he thinks women want to read So I don t recommend this Only read if you like horror and gore and can handle that kind of treatment of women Glad this was a library book

    Ugh This was almost a DNF for me but I have to admit Masterton has created an interesting enough main character an apothecaries daughter and enough tension that you can't help but skim to the end to find out who the devil is However be warned
