Paperback / Hardback

In April 1900, on the imaginary island of Mingheria—the twenty-ninth state of the Ottoman Empire—tensions rise between its Muslim and Orthodox Greek populations as a deadly plague, possibly brought by Muslim pilgrims or merchant vessels, sparks a rebellion. To curb the epidemic, Sultan Abdul Hamid II
dispatches a skilled Orthodox Christian quarantine expert, but resistance from some Muslims, a murder, and incompetence in local governance hinder containment efforts. As the death toll climbs, a Muslim doctor is also sent, yet the quarantine’s failure prompts international intervention through a naval blockade. Now
the people of Mingheria are on their own, and they must find a way to defeat the plague themselves. Steeped in history and rife with suspense, Nights of Plague is an epic story set more than one hundred
years ago, with themes that feel remarkably contemporary.
