Feeling culturally isolated and disconnected from the villagers, they are delighted when Betty, the grocer’s assistant, invites them to her wedding.Throughout the ceremony and ensuing party, Karen and Mary witness but do not understand the undercurrent of tension and conspiracy upon which float the traditional processes of the nuptials.Two days later, they discover the mutilated remains of their next door neighbour in a sacred grove near the village and begin to peel away the conventional facade of the villagers.DI Cora Bodkin, trim, taut and fierce, is in charge of the investigation.

Like an arrow, she penetrates the fabric of lies woven by Mabel, the village butcher, her brother Michael, the banker and Tommy, the handyman, piercing their sense of who they are. Self-deception and half-truths drip like blood in their revelations. Attempting to heal both the souls and spirits of his wounded parishioners, the local vicar, Rev.

Nicholas Potts (Nic the Vic), uses not only his pulpit but also a fortune teller’s tent to piece together the grisly story.Karen and Mary and DI Cora Bodkin travel parallel routes to discover who is responsible for this horrific human desecration, the former as witnesses to life in the village through the eyes of cultural newcomers and DI Cora Bodkin as the newly arrived representative of legal justice.How the villagers confront the capacity for evil they have discovered within themselves drives the plot.

How DI Bodkin resolves the tension between what is legal and what is ethical shapes the resolution.
