Bobby Holmes, Brenda Watson and friends are embroiled in a deadly mystery. A vicious beast roams the eerie North York Moors of England in search of blood, controlled by the ancient, evil   Witches of Westerdale. While searching for their missing friend, they rely on information from a librarian who is much more than he seems, a gypsy king with magical gifts, and a mysterious stranger at the center of it all. The climax builds as they race to a floating cottage in the mist to save their friend and finally confront the crazed creature in a fight to the death.
