For twenty-six-year-old Luke Benami, life has always been a study in absolutes: black and white, good and evil, truth and lies. A father hailed as a national hero, a pioneer in the birth of Israel. A brother scorned as an army deserter, a criminal on the run. But his father's sudden death will change everything Luke has ever known or believed...about his father, his history, his homeland.

Searching for his estranged brother, Luke finds only Danni's lover in Paris and his business partner in Florence, both claiming to know nothing of his whereabouts. Danni has undertaken his own quest, into the heart of a dark secret that has long haunted the family. It will become Luke's quest too, taking them both into a dangerous world of moral ambiguity, desperate choices, and profound betrayal.

Spellbinding and provocative, Sacrifice of Isaac is the stunning debut of a remarkable talent.
