Abstract:

"The story begins in the ancient Greece of myth, where King Meleager of Kalydon has assembled the sixty greates hunters and one huntress, Atalanta to rid his realm of the supernatural boar sent by the vengeful goddess Artemis to lay waste to his lands. But as the hunters bear down upon their prey a darker tale unfold, of treachery and destructive love. It is a tale that will reverberate in those same hills across the millennia during the final chaotic months of the Second World War, as a band of Greek partisans pursues a fleeing Nazi officer."--Jacket.
