De Pravitate Mundi is a historical crime novel about an inquisitor, set in the Republic of Venice in 1475.
The trade metropolis of the fading middle ages is haunted by an increasing wave of death, due to a mysterious, plage-like epidemic. To keep up the pretence of control, the members of the Great Council decide to assign the perambulating pontifical inquisitor Henricus to investigate for possible unnatural causes. The rather pecular Dominican, who has been to the Republic before in the past, begins his search, in hopes to find a possible perpetrator and take him out.
