From two #1 bestselling masters of crime fiction comes an extraordinary thriller about family, murder, and the secrets that refuse to stay buried.   It’s been more than a year since LAPD detective Jacob Lev learned the remarkable truth about his family, and he’s not coping well. He’s back to drinking, he’s not talking to his father, the LAPD Special Projects Department continues to shadow him, and the memory of a woman named Mai haunts him day and night. And while Jacob has tried to build a bridge to his mother, she remains a stranger to him, imprisoned inside her own tattered mind. Then he comes across the file for a gruesome unsolved murder that brings the two halves of his life into startling collision. Finding the killer will take him halfway around the world, to Paris—the city of romance, but also of gritty streets, behind the lights. It’s a dangerous search for truth that plunges him into the past. And for Jacob Lev, there is no place more frightening. Jonathan Kellerman has long been known for his mastery of criminal psychology and his ability to create thrilling novels of nuanced drama and suspense. But in The Golem of Paris, he and Jesse Kellerman raise that suspense to a whole new level.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A witty, propulsive, and frequently chilling read . . . as ambitious as it is entertaining. Kirkus Reviews
One of the craziest, wildest, and most compelling works of popular fiction in years. Commentary
The Golem of Hollywood transcends genre. It’s a whole that exceeds the sum of its very considerable parts, creative and otherwise . . . a story so wonderfully told that your bookshelf must have it. Bookreporter.com
“Fans of the Kellermans’ layered, literary style will find much to like here, in the followup to The Golem of Hollywood. Varied POVs and timelines will keep readers intrigued.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Jacob’s journey to uncover the killer leads him to explore several generations of interlocking family histories throughout Europe…[and] interweaves interesting characters from different time frames.” Publishers Weekly
“Father and son Kellermans continue their co-written Golem series with a fascinating and frightening glimpse into an imagined religious supernatural subculture and the very real brutality and inscrutability of Eastern Bloc secret police networks while also spinning an engaging crime-solving tale and setting up a more distinct Lev family link to the mysterious and unearthly events that will certainly keep popping up as long as Mai is free…[A] compelling mix of adventure, crime, and horror with paranormal and historical elements.” Kirkus Reviews
