A gripping literary mystery in the tradition of "The Name of the Rose", set among secret Jews living in Lisbon in the sixteenth century. The year is 1506, and the streets of Lisbon are seething with fear and suspicion when Abraham Zarco is found dead, a naked girl at his side. Abraham was a renowned kabbalist, a practitioner of the arcane mysteries of the Jewish tradition at a time when the Jews of Portugal were forced to convert to Christianity. Berekiah, a talented young manuscript illuminator, investigated his uncle's murder, and discovers in th kabbalah clues that lead him into the labyrinth of secrets in which Jews sought to hide from their persecutors.
