Description
"Blind, fatherless, homosexual, Russian emigre speechwriter Nathan Kazakov has enough problems even before his left ear is obliterated by a bullet presumably meant for his employer, the hawkish prime minister of Israel. Consumed by the desire to discover exactly what happened, Nathan begins an investigation that leads him into a web of conspiracies involving messianic Orthodox settlers, Arab terrorists, and the Israeli secret service. Was the bullet intended for Nathan? For the prime minister? Or perhaps for the prime minister's charismatic son Gabriel, an archaeologist who does not share his father's politics? One trail leads to Leviticus, another beneath the Temple Mount. Told by the blind hero as he staggers through Jerusalem, Strange Fire occurs at the focal point where personal, political, psychological, sexual, historical, and theological forces come together to explosive effect."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
