"A superior thriller, very well written, sensitively and beautifully plotted." - New York Times Book Review
In a holy city, even saints can be suspects...It was the time of the intifada, a season of hatred and fear in the city called Jerusalem, the City of Peace...Criminal Investigations Department Commander Avram Cohen faces a terrible double murder of two Russian nuns, mother and daughter, members of the Russian Orthodox convent in Ein Kerem. The KGB baby-sitter for the Red Russian mission in the Holy Land is embarrassed, the police are embarrassed, the Knesset is embarrassed-even the Prime Minister exerts pressure for a quick solution...
"The lessons that Robert Rosenberg learned covering the Jerusalem crime beat as a reporter have been put to excellent use in this intricate tale of murder and madness in that holiest of cities." - Jonathan Kellerman
Avram Cohen returns in House of Guilt (1-890208-41-8), originally published by Scribner. Journalist Rosenberg lives in Israel.

Born in 1951 in Boston, Mass., Rosenberg is fully bi-lingual in both Hebrew and English. In Israel since early 1973, he spent two years with UPI, a year with TIME/LIFE, and four years with US News&World Report, but his main beat was as a national affairs reporter for the old Jerusalem Post in its last twelve years before its purchase in 1990 by the Hollinger Corp. From 1985 to 1990 he wrote the Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv column. His articles from Israel have appeared in many international magazines and newspapers. Robert Rosenberg is married to the Argentine-born artist and interior designer Silvia Cherbacoff-Rosenberg, whose drawings sometimes appear in Ariga pages. They live with their teen age daughter, Amber, in Tel Aviv.
