There is a story about the tree the body is hanging on that is many years old. It is believed that a long time ago, a woman was hanged on this tree. The case was never resolved, and the people of this sleepy highland town don’t like sharing the details with strangers. Just when DI James is beginning to investigate the story, more bodies turn up, and the strange thing is that they come with the same snares. The police find a clockwork mechanism made up of bone and wood placed on each crime scene.
DI James teams up with DC McKenzie to solve this case. These two will realize that the town people are not keen to share their secrets. While the community seems peaceful from a distance, corruption is the order of the day. Those responsible for protecting the vulnerable in society turn the other way, so corruption continues unabated. The only way justice is served here is if those who feel offended take the law in their hands. As DI James works through this case, he is also trying to deal with his wife’s loss. Since his wife died of cancer, the DI has become more daring, refusing to back down even when fighting enemies that could easily end his life.

While the Assistant Chief warns the duo about digging into the story of the woman who first died in the first tree, these two are determined to get to the root of these mysterious killings. Sure, they will put their lives on the line more than enough times, but what does a good detective do when confronted with such mysterious killings. What secrets will the detectives unravel?
