Ari Ben Chaim, abandoned at birth, then raised on a kibbutz, now learns that four people in his life have been murdered by unknown assassis--his adoptive parents, a psychologist who treated him after he resigned from the Israeli Army, even an old Englishwoman who had been his babynurse in the orphanage has been murdered and Ari must find out why.

Meanwhile Lily, the woman he loves, waits for him in a remote Israeli village, where she tries to unravel mysteries of her own. What is the meaning of the words she discovered on a stone in an overgrown convent garden in Jerusalem...and who is this Lord her friends worship?
A young Jewish couple, a splinter group of Muslims, Messianic Jews, and a long hidden Biblical secret all collide in this gripping action adventure set in the Middle East.
