As amateur sleuth Juno Browne's Sunday dawns chilly and bright in the delightful Devon town of Ashburton, a murder is brewing. Juno is in the wrong place at the wrong time when she discovers the body of Bob the Blacksmith, his dead hands clutching a sprig of elder.

Juno begins to see links with previous 'accidental' deaths, although her way through the cloud of suspicion is further obscured by those who insist on links to ancient folklore. Determined to take the evidence with a generous pinch of salt, she navigates pagan ceremonies and astrological connections that turn up yet more bodies on a deadly path to the truth.
