"Wehrmacht Captain Martin Bora discovers the abbess, Mother Kazimierza, shot dead in her convent garden. Her alleged power to see the future has brought her a devoted following. But her work and motto, 'Lumen Christi Adiuva Nos', appear also, it transpires, to have brought her some enemies. Father Malecki had come to Cracow from Chicago at the Pope's bidding, to investigate Mother Kazimierza's powers. Now the Vatican orders him to stay and assist in the inquiry into her killing. Stunned by the violence of the occupation and the ideology of his colleagues, Bora's sense of Prussian duty is tested to breaking point. The interference of seductive actress Ewa Kowalska does not help matters."--P. [4] of cover.
