When Allan Rutherford is found, fallen, his head cracked open, Beldon Magna is devastated.

More unsettling still, a child's mask had been left over his face, a wide smile upon it.

DI Calderwood and DS Bulmer, leading the investigation, are as unnerved as the locals.

Before they can solve it, another body is found; like the doctor's, it is staged in a gruesome parody of a nursery rhyme, upon a tuffet and riddled with spiders.

One thing is clear: one of Beldon Magna's own residents is responsible.

The hunt is on...

As the village tries to go about normal life, idle gossip reveals that there are plenty secrets people are trying to hide.

Desmond Appleby and his partner Gwilym, end up the inadvertent sleuths once more, and may be able to give the police the break they need.

Will they be able to convince the police of their theory before the killer strike again?

Or will more people fall victim to the Nursery Rhyme Murders... ?
