Some small statues are smashed to bits at the home of family friend and art critic Heidi Stevens. Sam MacNeil, still unable to escape his hometown, doesn't think much about it---until it happens a second time. A serial vandal? Do they even exist? Sam doesn't think so and when Heidi's neighbor ends up murdered Sam has a bad feeling there's something rotten in the town of Hamlet. To make matters worse, there is a suggestion that terrorists may be involved. In Hamlet? This is starting to get ridiculous, even by the quirky standards of Hamlet.
