From Jonathan Kellerman, the #1 New York Times bestselling author
and master of psychological suspense, and Jesse Kellerman, the international #1
bestselling author of The Genius,
comes one of the most remarkable novels of the year.
A burned-out LA detective, a woman of mystery who is
far more than she seems, a grotesque, ancient monster bent on a mission of
retribution—when these three collide, a new standard of suspense is born.
The legend of the Golem of Prague has endured through the
ages, a creature fashioned by a sixteenth-century rabbi to protect his
congregation, now lying dormant in the garret of a synagogue. But the Golem is
dormant no longer.
Detective Jacob Lev wakes one morning, dazed and confused. He
seems to have picked up a beautiful woman in a bar the night before, but he
can’t remember anything about the encounter, and before he knows it, she has
gone. But this mystery pales in comparison to the one he’s about to be called
on to solve. Newly reassigned to a Special Projects squad he didn’t even know
existed, he’s sent to a murder scene far up in the hills of Hollywood Division.
There is no body, only an unidentified head lying on the floor of a house.
Seared into a kitchen counter nearby is a single word: the Hebrew for justice.
Detective Lev is about to embark on an odyssey—through Los
Angeles, through many parts of the United States, through London and Prague,
but most of all, through himself. All that he has believed to be true will be
upended—and not only his world, but the world itself, will be changed. Download and start listening now!
