The war is over and blackouts are a thing of the past, except in the village of Melchester, where the local council has refused to sully its streets with unsightly lamps. The night is pitch black, but hardly quiet. Young lovers are rendezvousing, a police constable is helping himself to a few of his neighbor's partridges, and a poet is going to visit his beloved, a new verse on his lips. She will never hear it, sadly, for the young man is stopped along his way – stopped forever, by the tight grip of the garrote. The local constabulary wastes no time reaching out to Scotland Yard, which sends its best man: the easygoing detective-inspector Littlejohn. In Melchester he will find unspeakable secrets – and one citizen whose soul is as dark as the village night.

In a small town nestled among mountains and pine trees, the line between the past and the present begins to blur. Over three hundred years later and thousands of miles from the barren gallows hill of Salem's Village, accused witch Martha Corey and magistrate John Hawthorne come face to face once more. This time, however, the tables are turned and it is Martha Corey who holds the power as a county Judge and Hawthorne, the accused. But again it is Martha 'Marti' whose life hangs in the balance with only centuries-old memories and the help and love of the attractive new Sheriff, Keane Wickham, to save her from the hangman's noose.
