"It is spring 2009, and prosecutor Szacki is no longer working in Warsaw - he has said goodbye to his family and to his career in the capital and moved to Sandomierz, a picturesque town full of churches and museums. Hoping to start a 'brave new life, ' Szacki instead finds himself investigating a strange murder case in surroundings both alien and unfriendly. A victim is found brutally murdered, her body drained of blood. The killing bears all the hallmarks of a legendary Jewish ritual slaughter, prompting a wave of anti-Semitic patanoia in the closely knit community. In his investigation Szacki must wrestle with the painful tangle of Polish-Jewish relations and an event that happened more than sixty years earlier." -- back cover.
