Former London Policeman Alan Banks relocated to Yorkshire seeking some small measure of peace. But his new venue, the quaint little village of Eastvale, seems to have more than its fair share of malefactors.
Among the local wrongdoers is a brazen Peeping Tom who has been spying on attractive, unsuspecting ladies as they prepare for bed. Then, an elderly woman is found brutally slain in her home. And suddenly, perverse and murderous acts -- perhaps related, perhaps not -- are combining to profoundly touch Bank's suddenly vulnerable personal life.
