Soon afterwards an ancient Saxon amulet is stolen from the museum and the dead bodies of young boys begin to turn up arranged as grotesque works of art with components of the gold amulet around their necks. The enigmatic Detective Inspector draws Alex into a strange web of ancient secrets, pagan ritualism and the illegal trafficking of young boys. Have the boys been murdered? How have they got there? What is the meaning of the symbols? And most of all, who is the responsible and why?
