Something Nasty In the Woodshed finds Charlie, exiled from London due to his growing unpopularity caused by a few shady art deals, taking refuge in a country estate on the Channel Island of Jersey. What begins as a hedonistic interlude morphs into a macabre manhunt, as Charlie seeks to expose a local rapist whose modus operandi bears a striking resemblance to that of a warlock from ancient British mythology known as "The Beast of Jersey".
