I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett - Penguin Books New Zealand
But for now she'd had enough of darkness. In an interview at the Guardian Book Club,  Pratchett remarked that the book is an urban fantasy. Tiffany is working as the Chalk 's only witch in a climate of growing suspicion and prejudice. When the local Baron for whom she had been caring dies of poor health, she is accused of murder. On the way Tiffany is attacked by the Cunning Man, a frightening figure who has holes where his eyes should be.
I Shall Wear Midnight
In the city she meets Mrs Proust, the proprietor of Boffo's joke shop, where many witches buy their stereotypical witch accoutrements. When they find Roland and Letitia the Nac Mac Feegles , who have as usual been following Tiffany, are accused of destroying a pub. Tiffany and Mrs Proust are arrested by Carrot and Angua, and nominally locked up - although it is mostly, in fact, for their protection as people start to resent witches.
When they are released the next day, Tiffany meets Eskarina Smith not seen since the events of the third Discworld novel, Equal Rites , who explains to her that the Cunning Man was, a thousand years ago, an Omnian witch-finder, who had fallen in love with a witch. That witch, however, knew how evil the Cunning Man was. She was eventually burnt to death, but as she was being burned she trapped the Cunning Man in the fire as well. The Cunning Man became a demonic spirit of pure hatred, able to corrupt other minds with suspicion and hate.
