Suspected by his friends of killing an elderly lady, Councillor Amos Cotswold is targeted by a greedy developer who, seeking to discredit him, reports Amos for pressurising old folk. This accusation threatens Amos’s position and hence the villagers who depend on his protection. His plight is exacerbated by the painfully resurrected memory of a young woman who disappeared 40 years ago, three attempts on his life, a run-in with organised car crime and an ambivalent relationship with the local gypsies. Now Amos is forced to discover the link.
