In the quaint town of Huntly, a moonlit ritual is observed by a professor of anthropology from a prestigious London university. Protected by the cover of darkness, he believes he is safe from prying eyes. But those involved in the spectacle are not ordinary creatures, and their senses are more acute than he has given them credit for.
Unsatisfied with the response from the local police force, Jenna Wilkinson arrives in Huntly to search for her missing uncle. There, she meets the detective constable in charge of the case Alan Young, and together, they set about trying to uncover the professor's disappearance.
One by one, more victims follow, and they'll have to put aside their beliefs and superstitions to save the town. But can they escape a fate worse than death?
