(From the publisher):
It's winter, 1946, and strange things are happening at Tarutz quarantine camp in Southern Poland where a group of refugees have fallen victim to a horrific, unidentifiable disease. A young doctor is sent to identify the mysterious affliction now working its way through a growing list of victims. Winter, 1648, and the ancient town of Hamelin is struggling to survive the most savage war Europe has ever known. Besieged by a vicious mercenary army, confounded by the endless machination of its leaders, and gripped by starvation, fever, and vermin, Hamelin is desperate for any respite. Is there a connection between these two calamities?
