When a scantily clad coven of witches
and warlocks is discovered on the out­
skirts of Flaxborough dancing around
a brightly burning fire in the reenact-
nient of a medieval fertility revel, it is
obvious that some sort of sexual hanky-
panky is going on. Yet the following
day in the Flaxborough Citizen their
activities are reported merely as* an
innocent folklore revival. Not con­
sidered newsworthy is the mysterious
disappearance of one of the "witches,"
Edna Hillyard, or the discovery of her
neatly folded clothes in her abandoned
car. The subsequent routine police
investigation for the missing woman
uncovers bizarre goings-on in the
seemingly quiet little town: Several
prominent townspeople are being in­
timidated with black curses in the form
of dead animals and human effigies; a
second citizen is reported missing; and
an ancient horned bull's mask is found
floating in the nearby river during the
filming of a TV detergent commercial.
Despite what seems to be an evil spell
hovering over their beloved village, the
citizenry remains unruffled and the
local constabulary methodically gathers
reinforcements to help unravel the
string of puzzling events.
But the discovery of the fatally
gored body of Bert Persimmon, the
missing grocery store manager, removes
the series of strange incidents from the
realm of a frightening game of black
magic to the deadly game of murder,
and the phlegmatic Inspector Purbright
begins a modern witch hunt for a mur­
derer. Once again he is aided by that
delightful con artist Miss Lucilla Edith
Cavell Teatime, who has her own mys­
terious, if not decidedly unorthodox,
sources of information.
