    This is the story of the infamous 19th-century Scottish grave robbers who weren't Scottish and didn't rob graves. They were actually Irish, and as robbing graves to supply the needs of Edinburgh's anatomists proved to be rather hard work, they just took to murdering people - usually their neighbors - for profit. In collaboration with their common-law wives, they set about supplying corpses for Dr. John Knox, an eminent Scottish surgeon, with considerable enthusiasm and gusto.

    Sir Richard Arkwright has brought modernity to a remote corner of Derbyshire with the creation of Cromford Mill. Now, as his crowning glory, he's going to build himself a castle - but first a strange outcrop of rocks will have to be removed. Locals warn Arkwright of a local legend about Crooker, a dangerous nature spirit, but Sir Richard scoffs at such notions, until it becomes clear an uncanny force in the landscape is prepared to fight him for ownership of the valley.
