When another villager is discovered brutally murdered the following afternoon, Thea is thrust into the middle of yet another police investigation. With the Callendar family linked to most of the village, Stanton is bursting with suspects. Jealousy, closures of footpaths and secret animal research - all possible motives for the murders and Thea finds herself in a pickle when even the most trustworthy of the local residents are questionable...
