Blind Jewish physician Isaac of Girona travels to northern Catalonia to heal an injured man. But the real cure requires uncovering the danger that surrounds him.
Isaac has been invited to Perpignan for two reasons: to attend a wedding of his friend Davi's son and to heal Arnau Marça, a Christian knight and patient of Davi's who was badly injured during an attack. But as Arnau struggles to identify his enemy, an innocent apprentice is murdered. Now, Isaac's uncanny ability to discern foul from fair, and Arnau's relentless will to survive, are their only armor against the possibility of more tragedy...
