Blood Covenant is a mystical thriller, pitting an unlikely team of four against a conspiracy so dark you will be astonished as it comes to light. A Congressman’s young granddaughter has been ritually murdered, bled out, a Hebrew letter carved into her forehead. Gideon Schwartz, a family friend and a long-retired FBI agent, is called to the crime scene. When he returns home, he finds an email message from Rabbi Moshe Katan: “Dear Mr. Schwartz . . . I’m very much afraid the murder of that child is only the beginning . . . ” Their dialogue intensifies with each ritual murder. By the time Katan becomes a person of significant interest, he has gone into hiding. But, he has allies operating openly: Sidney Lee, the head of a powerful Chinese trading family; his wife, Stephanie, an intuitive adept; and the young Daniel, a savant who can bend the fabric of space and time. What unfolds is a multi-dimensional kabbalistic chessboard. Pieces accelerate to astonishing speed. Age-old secrets burst to the surface. The end game will leave you . . . breathless.
