Abstract:

“It was 1901. … The revolver was cold, like the grave. … The bullets nestled in their chambers. Max von Pettenkofer caressed the metal with liver-spotted hands. The gun was heavy. He put the muzzle to his temple … there was no audience. The shot echoed off the walls and down the hall. The last of the miasmatists slumped forward, blood pouring onto the desk.”
