The local DI asserts that it is an accident but DI Fraser Nash and his DS, Neil Cardoman, are drafted in, to investigate further.They find themselves in a town that is dark and threatening and are caught up in the longstanding conflict between two families- the Fox’s and Bayliss’s. Dermot Fox, a bully boy and small-time property developer intends to develop a historical site on which is a circle of standing stones, the Seven Maidens- and the ancient woodlands which surround them. His protagonist is Davina Bayliss. Known as a ‘witch’, she will do anything to preserve the Maidens, which she sees as her particular heritage. A fabricator of stories, she tries to seduce Fraser, to enlist his help. Was the death of Gabber, who was her cousin, part of this conflict? Or is there a more devious conspiracy afoot in the town?Local legends say that certain spirits, including the mysterious Green Men, will rise up to defend their land and the Maidens if they are threatened. Are these mystical forces responsible for the deaths that occur later? They certainly appear to threaten Fraser, whose investigation proceeds under clouds of doubt and conspiracy, and gathering, foul weather. Or are they down to the more human battle over the standing stones?
