Summary
On a farm in southern Ireland, the dismembered bones of eleven women are found in a common grave, buried eight decades ago. Detective Superintendent Katie Maguire is used to bloodshed, but this ivory litter of human remains is unimaginable butchery. In isolated darkness not far away, an American tourist is at the mercy of a serial killer. His tools are a boning knife, twine, and a doll fashioned from nails and fishhooks. The murder of his victims is second only to the pleasure of their pain. As an eighty-year-old mystery unfolds, so does a modern day ritual that's marked Katie Maguire as its next victim. For what happened once in this picturesque village is happening again. It's more than a series of horrifying crimes. It's tradition
