Atough, hard-nosed career officer in the male-dominated world of British policing, DCI Claire Pierce of North Yorkshire Police heads Northern England's underfunded and understaffed Ritual Crime Unit. Injured in the line of duty, DCI Pierce returns to work to find a new detective challenging her authority. He has brought in a self-proclaimed necromancer to question the victim of a murder; there's a coven of druids outside protesting the sale of their sacred site; and something in the evidence room has just sent out a signal...
