As the summer of 1322 brings sun to the Devonshire countryside, two playmates uncover the body of a young girl. As news spreads the name on everyone's lips is Aline, who went missing 6 years ago. Baldwin Frunshill and Bailiff Simon Puttock are summoned to the scene to investigate.
As the summer of 1322 brings sun to the Devonshire countryside, it seems that the small village of Sticklepath is destined to remain in darkness. two playmates uncover the body of a young girl up on the moors. The body is that of Aline, the ten-year-old daughter of Swetricus, who went missing six years ago. Baldwin Furnshill, Keeper of the King's Peace, and his friend Bailiff Simon Puttock are summoned to the scene to investigate, and soon discover Aline is not the only young girl to have been found dead in recent years. It seems that the villagers have been concealing not only a serial killer, but, judging by the state of the girls' bodies, a possible case of cannibalism. Or, if the rumours are to be believed, a vampire! That would certainly explain the haunted looks in the eyes of so many villagers, and the strange noises heard late at night from the Sticklepath cemetery...
