Sandy Beech não acredita em bruxas e sobrenatural. No entanto, certos eventos estranhos ocorrem e põem à prova seu ceticismo: um livro em chamas, um crucifixo em queda, uma doença misteriosa e um incêndio em um convento que mata todas as doze freiras. No leito de morte, Bernadette, a última freira sobrevivente, adverte-o para controlar suas luxúrias e evitar as mulheres africanas. Sandy acha isso difícil, já que ele é atraído por mulheres exóticas de pele escura e, após seu ano hedonista de intercâmbio universitário em Paris, casa-se com Rocky, da Costa do Marfim. Cinco anos depois, sem filhos e com o azar do casamento, eles decidem visitar o país natal de Rocky. Sandy é atraído para um mundo de estranhas crenças e práticas: ele descobre a Lista das Bruxas - uma lista de pessoas destinadas a morrer e é atacado por vários animais, começando com um cão feroz em Abidjan. Ele mergulha cada vez mais no reino da bruxaria africana, mas a verdade horrível permanece obscura ... A Lista das Bruxas é o primeiro de uma trilogia.

A Sandy le resulta difícil, ya que se siente atraído por las mujeres exóticas y de piel oscura y, después de un año de intercambio universitario hedonista en París, se casa con Rocky de Costa de Marfil. Cinco años después, sin hijos y con el matrimonio zozobrando, deciden visitar el país de origen de Rocky. Sandy se ve arrastrado a un mundo de creencias y prácticas extrañas: se entera de la Lista de las brujas, una lista de personas destinadas a morir, y es atacado por varios animales, comenzando con un perro feroz en Abiyán. Profundiza más y más en el ámbito de la brujería africana, pero la horrible verdad sigue siendo oscura…
