Dawn King’s Foxfinder is an unsettling variation of the witch-hunter story, exploring themes of privacy, belief and responsibility in an uncanny world.
When William Bloor, a ‘foxfinder’ arrives at the Coveys’ farm, he has only one aim – to use the education he’s been given to seek out and unearth the fox, an animal threatening their very civilisation. However, as investigations proceed, the revelations and events which follow change their lives forever.
