Published by iUniverseBooks
Having been discharged from the Mossad for shooting a fellow operative because he couldn’t take a joke, Dahlia Birn seeks redemption by bringing to justice Daniel Birnbach’s murderer. Dr. Birnbach had made a momentous discovery, ancient scrolls that may indicate a mistake in the Torah. According to the scrolls, rather than blessing his son Ishmael and his progeny, the Arabs, Abraham cursed them, condemning them to eternal servitude. Although the scrolls have yet to be authenticated, someone is killing to sup-press them. Dahlia chooses super-respectable lawyer, Marc Bloc, to be her silent partner—so silent that she neglects to tell him about the partnership. When her beauty, brains, and Beretta fail to get results, she relies on the hallucinatory voice inside her head. That voice, however, has its own Mephistophelian agenda.Was Birnbach killed on orders of Middle Eastern emirs fearful that the scrolls would cause riots sweeping them from power? Is Dahlia dangerously insane or is her schizoaffective disorder just part of her wacky charm? Will Dahlia help Marc recover from his wife’s passing and reconnect with his Jewish roots or lead him to his death? Are Marc’s and Dahlia’s struggles as futile as painting a burning house?
