The grand finale of the Devil trilogy
1545. In Nikolsburg, situated in a lonely and distant valley in the Alps, Sophia learns the local dialect. And now the book finally reveals its knowledge - but it isn’t the anticipated information. When Sophie receives the tidings that her husband, Magister Heinrich Fuchs, has fallen extremely ill, she departs immediately to return to Pirna, the coded text stowed in her baggage.
This is just what the conniving town chronicler Wolf Schumann has been waiting for. He still doesn’t know, though, that this long-anticipated, long-yearned-for book will drive him insane...
