An intriguing black comedy about dangerous liaisons in the English countryside around the turn of the millennium.
The fictional location is a sleepy Northumbrian village where some of the locals have their own saucy secrets and others have ones of a more criminal nature. These are all hung out to dry when a newcomer with a past, John Jarvis, arrives in town. He has revenge on his mind for past wrongs and he has his eye on his brutish neighbour’s girlfriend, Elly.
Elly reciprocates John’s feelings but her boyfriend and his boorish friend Roger do not like it one bit. In no time at all the villagers are up in arms as they perceive a threat to their comfortable little lives.
The local police chief has his own dark secret where John is concerned and it can only be solved by murder. He galvanises the local vigilantes to do his dirty work for him but they have seriously underestimated his powers of survival. Their attacks are rebuffed and the retribution visited upon the unholy alliance of the forces of evil and those of law and order is swift and merciless.
Through all the resulting chaos stalks The Vixen, the catalyst and the symbol of John Jarvis’s revenge. She steals through the darkest recesses of the plot and scuppers the best laid plans of the plotters.
