A mysterious list of names is found in the shoe of a dead woman. Antiques dealer Mark Easterbrook is determined to find out why his name is on the list. His investigations lead him to three spinsters living at The Pale Horse in the village of Much Deeping. As more deaths occur, Mark finds himself thinking the unthinkable. Could this all be the work of witchcraft, and is he himself cursed? Paranoia eats at Mark. Who wants him dead, and how can he save himself from the curse?
