This exciting political thriller combining romantic and political idealism is based on the life of Avshalom Feinberg who disappeared in January 1917. He was a spy in the Jewish Nili ring, which was key to Great Britain’s battles against the Ottoman Empire in Israel and Palestine. In this novel the authors use the thrilling life and mysterious death of this historical figure as a means to take on the subject of what or who Jews are up against and what is the responsibility of a Jewish writer today.
