*

1919 SIBERIA
In the outer reaches of a country recently torn apart by civil war lives a small Christian sect and its enigmatic leader, Balashov. Stationed nearby is a regiment of Czech soldiers, desperate to get home but on the losing side of the recent conflict. Uncertainty prevails.
Into this isolated community trudges Samarin, an escapee
from Russia's northernmost gulag. Immediately apprehended, he is brought for interrogation before Captain Matula, the regiment's megalomaniac commander. But the stranger's arrival has caught the attention of others, including Anna, a beautiful, young war widow. And when the local shaman lies dead, suspicion and terror engulf the little town . . .
