It's 1675, 11 years have passed since New Amsterdam became New-York and Pieter Tonneman as sheriff brought a murderer to justice and fell in love with the Jewish widow Racqel Mendoza. The marriage has made Racqel an outcast in the small Jewish community. If only Tonneman would convert, she might be once more accepted. Tonneman is no longer sheriff, but a business man. When the governor's prized stallion is slaughtered, and more slaughter occurs, the town becomes fearful of devil worship and there's talk of a Jewish conspiracy. Whispers begin that Racqel is a witch, and Tonneman knows he must find the killer before it's too late.
