The travelers have come to town. They've set up their motor homes and buses in the woods and are planning to stay a while. Their leader knows more about the people of Shenstead Village than he should. And he's about to make their lives a living hell.
The village patriarch, Colonel Lockyer-Fox, has his secrets -- a wife who died under mysterious circumstances, an illegitimate heir, hapless children. All of which will come to light when he gets ensnared...like a fox in a trap.
