Haunted in his sleeping hours by a mysterious woman and the day by a sinister man, he sails to Hungary. Here, Professor Polanyi finds a Turkish chronicle that mentions a citadel of evil. Determined to discover its source, he becomes drawn into a crisis involving the desecration of a grave and the disappearance of many people.

The Major and Polanyi unite against a terrible enemy and a race against time, played out in Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and the remote Hungarian countryside.
