Overview

Lilith Benley and her mother were rumored to be witches, and when they killed two teenage girls and fed their bodies to their pigs, they were swiftly brought to justice. Eighteen years later, a young woman is found brutally murdered at a neighboring farm, just as Lilith, recently released from prison, returns to her old home. The farm is the setting for a celebrity TV show and when DI Wesley Peterson is called in to investigate, he has to deal with fragile egos and hidden truths. Meanwhile, archaeologist Neil Watson discovers a gruesome wax doll at a house that once belonged to a woman hanged for witchcraft in the 17th century. But when Lilith vanishes and a celebrity dies in grisly circumstances, Wesley knows it is up to him to uncover terrible secrets and lies from the past and bring a dangerous killer to justiceā€”a killer who will stop at nothing to dispense vengeance and death.
