Since she vanished; someone has been sending him bizarre anonymous notes about ritual sacrifice; quoting Shakespeare and the Bible. He knows that Ruth's expertise and experience could help him finally to put this case to rest. But when a second child goes missing; Ruth finds herself in danger from a killer who knows she's getting ever closer to the truth...

Nelson traces the Catholic priest who used to run the place. He tells him that two children did go missing forty years before - a boy and a girl. They were never found.
