The police investigate the murder of the local church cleaner, Jessica, who is found dead at the foot of the alter by Rev. Michael Jordan. Jessica was well known in the village and was a strong woman who had a difficult life. She was also despised by many in the community, accused of having loose morals. Jessica and her sister Katherine Geach had a tense relationship as well. Several women in the community, led by Rev. Jordan's sister Celia, seemed to have a particular dislike for her. Jessica owned a farm and had tenants including Lawrence and Stephanie Vinter and their son Giles. When DI Lane finds threatening notes in Jessica's room, it is clear to just what extent some people wanted to get rid of her.
