Blackwell North Amer A ruined church in Norfolk. The body of a girl, stripped naked and pinned to the ground by a pitchfork. The sign of a cross etched in blood on her forehead. 'What kind of a man would do that to a girl?' the distraught young man who'd stumbled on the body asked Detective Chief Inspector Tench. 'I don't know,' Tench replied, 'but we'll root him out somehow. Be certain of that.' But tracking down the killer of Rosie Colls proved more difficult than he thought. There were whispers that this was a witchcraft murder, and the strange suggestion that the sites of three long-deserted villages might form a mystic triangle where the land had been cursed and crops had been blighted. In this, the seventh of the Lubbock and Tench mysteries, Tench finds himself faced not merely by a baffling series of clues, but by the equally baffling theories of his old friend and mentor, ex-Detective Chief Inspector Lubbock. And then, as he struggles to make sense of the many conflicting pieces of evidence, a second body is found, and all his hard-won theories vanish in the great bowl of Taddenham Camp.
