Medieval thriller, set in 1348 in England; a tale of lust and revenge that unfolds beneath the shadow of the Black Death. It is the story of an enigmatic French nobleman, brought to a small English village as a hostage, who turns out to be an impostor, a nameless stranger with a deadly agenda, a man who embodies the most primal instincts and who uses them to exact a merciless revenge on those around him. He has the ultimate weapon at his command. It's the Black Death itself.

"So it drifted away, an evil noxious mist, contaminating all it touched".
