Four men connected by Fate and too many secrets: 1998 -- Memphis, Tennessee: Doctor Bernard Phillips believes that he has just performed emergency heart surgery on a man he witnessed executed in the gas chamber over thirty years before. 1964 -- Juneapple, Mississippi: Sheriff Decatur Fairchild, hoping for a peaceful summer as outside volunteers bent on registering Blacks to vote disrupt the segregated status quo, discovers that there is an evil at work in his county that makes the local Klan look like cub scouts. 1944 -- Auschwitz, Poland: Camp doctor Conrad Pell finds he has deeply fallen in love with a beautiful Jewish internee and unthinkingly risks his future by seeking help from the most dangerous person in his past. 1940 -- Paris, France: Robert Anthony, in a desperate race to identify the perpetrator of dozens of horrible murders before the Nazis invade, is determined to uncover the truth no matter where the evidence points. Two will die, and two will have their lives changed forever.
