The Golem of Hollywood by Jonathan Kellerman, Jesse Kellerman
  

Lovereading view...

This slightly weird but intensely wonderful crime novel has more than a whiff of fantasy weaving through the hard edged gritty hunt for a killer. The ancient tale of Cain and Abel, followed by the creation of a Golem in 16th century Prague laces enticingly through the modern story of Detective Jacob Lev’s strange murder case. To start with it’s probably best not to try and work out what’s happening, just enjoy the ride, then as the stories start to come together the light bulb moment translates into a flash of brilliance. The writing is vivid and clever, this father and son collaboration works and together they have created a fascinating and captivating novel. ~ Liz Robinson

Synopsis

The Golem of Hollywood by Jonathan Kellerman, Jesse Kellerman

From Jonathan Kellerman, the #1 New York Times-bestselling author and master of psychological suspense, and Jesse Kellerman, the international #1 bestselling author of The Genius, comes one of the most remarkable novels of the year. A burned-out L.A. detective ...a woman of mystery who is far more than she seems ...a grotesque, ancient monster bent on a mission of retribution. When these three collide, a new standard of suspense is born. The legend of the Golem of Prague has endured through the ages, a creature fashioned by a sixteenth-century rabbi to protect his congregation, now lying dormant in the garret of a synagogue. But the Golem is dormant no longer. And for Detective Jacob Lev the mystery of how he spent last night pales in comparison the one he's about to be called upon to solve.
