9780142001851: Sacrifice of Isaac

For twenty-six-year-old Luke Benami, life has always been a study in absolutes: black and white, good and evil, truth and lies. A father hailed as a national hero, a pioneer in the birth of Israel. A brother scorned as an army deserter, a criminal on the run. But his father's sudden death will change everything Luke has ever known or believed...about his father, his history, his homeland.

Searching for his estranged brother, Luke finds only Danni's lover in Paris and his business partner in Florence, both claiming to know nothing of his whereabouts. Danni has undertaken his own quest, into the heart of a dark secret that has long haunted the family. It will become Luke's quest too, taking them both into a dangerous world of moral ambiguity, desperate choices, and profound betrayal.

Spellbinding and provocative, Sacrifice of Isaac is the stunning debut of a remarkable talent.

Review:

Extraordinary . . . Sacrifice of Isaac immediately vaults Neil Gordon into the company of John Le Carré and Graham Greene ( Newsday)

Sacrifice of Isaac is deft, finely written and put together with a rare assurance and maturity ( New York Times)

One of the most intellectually sophisticated thrillers this reviewer has ever read ( Washington Post)

This is the best kind of page-turner: one that reads well and that offers psychological examination of its characters' motivations and plenty of occasion for the reader's own private reflection ( San Francisco Chronicle)

From the Back Cover:

'Sacrifice of Isaac is deft, finely written and put together with a rare assurance and maturity' New York Times

Luke Benami is twenty-six years old when his father's sudden death compels him to return to Israel from America. Until now, he believed that his father was a great man, an Israeli national hero, and that his brother was the army deserter and criminal his family said he was.

But as he searches for his estranged brother, he begins a dangerous investigation that will challenge every certainty - about his father, his brother and his homeland.

Spellbinding and provocative, Sacrifice of Isaac is a thrilling novel about personal and political choices that probes the dark history of modern Israel.

'One of the most intellectually sophisticated thrillers this reviewer has ever read' Washington Post

'This is the best kind of page-turner: one that reads well and that offers psychological examination of its characters' motivations and plenty of occasion for the reader's own private reflection' San Francisco Chronicle
