Something has gone badly wrong on picturesque Erin Island. The boatload of missing fisherman should have given that away. Or, if not that, then the entire pod of pilot whales that washed up on shore dead and with great gash marks down their side. But, sadly, nobody really paid attention to the obvious signs. Not until it was too late, anyway. It's not entirely their fault, really. A new woman arrived in this tiny, isolated hamlet and the local males were too busy jostling for her attention to pay much attention to anything else.
