When the bodies of recent murder victims are dug up with ancient remains in the grounds of a ruined Abbey, Tony and Carol uncover more local legend than fact. But will that lead them to the killer? When bodies are discovered at Norton Hotel during... (more) the digging of new foundations, Carol is sent in to oversee whether they were in any way suspicious, or a legacy of the hotel's previous incarnation as part of the local Abbey. But the discovery of the bodies coincides with the hotel being burned to the ground, and Carol realises that she's got a very current case on her hands. She calls Tony in when it becomes apparent that someone is killing people in a way that Norton hasn't seen since it burned witches back in the middle ages. Needless to say, Brandon isn't too chuffed to have nothing to brief the press with apart from Tony's theory that the same killer could somehow be reaching a long arm over five centuries of murder. Tony and Carol are forced to challenge all that they thought they knew, as it is a case rich in the inexplicable. This killer forces them to test not only their science and experience, but also their very beliefs.
