Fate stamped Jack Cain's dance card years before his birth. His father, a photographer with Patton's third army, stumbles upon a children’s camp near the German town of Worms. In Camp Rainbow, situated on the former grounds of Hausser Pharmaceutical, he photographs young Gypsies, Slavs, Poles, and Jews being treated to comforts enjoyed only by privileged Germans. When he returns two weeks later, the camp has become a ghost town. Years later, the secret of this camp dies along with Jack’s father. The only remaining clue is a box of photographs. Years later, Jack is a forty-five-year-old surgeon whose life has become a slow funeral. Jack slips into seclusion after his daughter dies, his wife leaves him, and a patient's family sues him for manslaughter. Suspicions of Camp Rainbow and its dark connections creep into his life. He takes a job at Hausser's North American headquarters and moves into a world of deceit and illusion. There he serves as the catalyst that ignites a reaction with unbelievable consequences
