The myth and magic of Ireland become a pastoral setting for murder for Lark Dodge, newly arrived from the States to keep an eye on her convalescing father and to reflect on her own marital storms.
Her idyll ends before it begins when she stumbles upon a dead body on the grounds of the castlelike estate where she is staying. The body is that of a businessman who is also an unpopular nationalist with a passion for elaborate war games played out in the nearby woods.
Tensions of all sort explode when the body of another victim takes Lark into secrets of the heart and the gruesome atrocities of the human soul...
