When highwaymen hold up seeker-of-curiosities Richard Davey on a lonely road in Bavaria, it’s only the beginning of the nightmare.

The monks offer him shelter for the night—but what shelter can there be from a diabolic vengeance in feline shape, seeking redress for a crime that has haunted the monks for over two centuries?
