Plot Summary

DCI Reg Wexford and DI Burden has to deal with a group of eco-activists who have set up an elaborate camp in a wooded area in the hopes of stopping the construction of a major road, the Kingsmarkham bypass. Some of the activists will go to any length to have it stopped including setting traps for the construction crews such as spiking trees. Their leader is a somewhat imposing figure who will only identify himself as King of the Wood. Tensions are growing between the workers and the protesters who are forcibly evicted and forced out of their camp. Meanwhile, Burden is investigating the case of a missing German girl, Ulrike Ranke who seems to have vanished into thin air. The girl's father has taken to living in Kingsmarkham and contacts Burden regularly on the status of the case. When they find her body in the woods Burden's instinct tells him he's dealing with a murder. They trace her to a pub where she'd called a taxi but the driver who picked her up, Trotter, is clearly hiding something. The Wexfords are once again grandparents but Reg is worried sick when Dora fails to arrive at their daughter Sheila's house. None of the taxi firms have any record of collecting someone at their house. When a second and then a third person who were to travel to London are reported missing, it's evident the disappearances are connected. In total 5 people are missing and all have been taken hostage by environmental terrorists calling themselves Sacred Globe. Written by garykmcd
