Salem: 1691 - height of the famous Witch Trails. Innocent people are being executed for no reason. Elizabeth Burroughs, wife of the reverend George is one of them. But George isn’t so innocent. He too is caught and hung. But what was he doing before he was apprehended? In present day England, Martin and Sue Hawthorne have their own antique business in a typical Yorkshire Dales village. The appearance of a mysterious stranger, dressed entirely in black sets Martin’s nerves on edge, especially when he leaves a strange object before disappearing. Following the meeting, a trail of devastation sweeps the village, deaths so horrific and without apparent motive, they leave the police baffled, especially when they all lead to back one couple, Martin and Sue Hawthorne. George’s curse – it seems – is still active, and the couple face a terrifying ordeal - a fight to the death for their survival.
