Polish-born detective Dania Gorska, seconded to Dundee’s Specialist Crime Division, is called to investigate three murders in which the bodies of the victims are posed in different ways; the first is dressed and staged as a scarecrow while the other two are displayed in an equally bizarre manner.  She is unable to establish what links them but clues point to their having been members of a druidic cult – something which her investigative journalist brother Marek is pursuing for his paper.
