London. 1961. Mark Easterbrook has everything a man could dream of - he's rich, successful and popular, with a beautiful wife and perfect home. When Mark's name is discovered on a list in a dead woman's shoe everything starts to fall apart for him.
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: a place of old traditions, macabre rituals and strange beliefs.
