Equal parts horror, crime and fairy-tale, Greenbeard tells the tale of the School Tie Killer, currently stalking Acrebridge and bringing fear to a small community. At the same time, two very different men arrive in the area, unknown to each other: Dave Lakeland, the blonde-haired, smiling businessman, highly regarded by all who know him; and the elderly Mr Miles, an unusually sensitive and strange, itinerant artist, struggling to cope with the modern world and make a meagre living. People have their suspicions as to who the murderer is; but to begin with only a small boy, Daniel Serle, knows who the real killer is. But when the two men meet by accident in a local park, Mr Miles also learns the truth. And armed only with his unique visions and a very special tin of decades-old paint, he must try rid the town of the horrors it faces.
