They call the ancient hills of Jerusalem the butcher’s
theater. Here, upon this bloodstained stage, a faceless killer performs his
violent specialty: the first to die brutally is a fifteen-year-old girl. She is
drained of blood, then carefully bathed and shrouded in white. Precisely one
week later, a second victim is found. From the sacred Wailing Wall to the
monasteries where dark secrets are cloistered, from black-clad Bedouin enclaves
to labyrinthine midnight alleys, veteran police inspector Daniel Sharavi and
his crack team plunge deep into a city simmering with religious and political
passions to hunt for a murderer whose insatiable taste for young women could
destroy the delicate balance on which Jerusalem’s very survival depends.
A brilliant novel by a master of the genre, a vivid look at
the tortured complexities of a psychopath’s mind, a rich evocation of a city
steeped in history—this, and more, is The Butcher's Theater. Download and start listening now!
