Why should a sexually assaulted teenager become an elderly woman in a matter of hours? Why was a naked corpse fed to starving pigs? Who are the Seven Whistlers?
Only Medieval legend and the occult can provide the true solution, and forestall an epidemic that could be as devastating as the Black Death.
