KIRKUS REVIEW

Nine year old Billy Fenwick disappears from a train moving through East Germany and when returned to his parents with a smoggy story, he also has a temperature of 107 and dies from what seems to be a variant of bubonic plague. Is it the medieval Black Death or a modern (Russian) form of germ warfare? Sir Marcus Levin pursues the virus to its source in an underground crypt after pandemic pandemonium sweeps the continent... A professional handling and, on the whole, lively deadly stuff.
