The Franchise is a dark and ugly house on the outskirts of the village and the two women who live there keep themselves to themselves.

But when they are accused of abducting and torturing a young girl, people begin to take notice, and suddenly local solicitor Robert Blair finds himself involved with the most extraordinary case of his life.
