Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Clayton adroitly combines thriller elements with one man's particular, but resonant, Jewish legacy…His morality tale effectively explores the courage, costs, and rewards involved in putting others first.” Publishers Weekly
“Anthony Heald superbly narrates this complex story. He provides accurate Hebrew pronunciations, a perfect Yiddish accent, and great voices for the many characters….All the characters are complicated and flawed, and the story is compelling…[with] plenty of action and danger to satisfy interested listeners.” AudioFile
