Description

Judith, a daring and beautiful woman, hardened by her life as a slave and angered by the treatment of her people, the inhabitants of Nazareth, becomes a feared and powerful figure beginning with the brutal assassination and decapitation of an enemy general. Hoping to retire as a free woman and into obscurity, Judith is sent on one last mission to assassinate the Messiah, Joshua, a Christ-like figure, who she discovers is her childhood sweetheart.this is a work of stunning originality that echoes the work and style of Michael Chabon (the Adventures of Kavalier and Clay and the Yiddish Policemen's Union). Combining historical events, biblical conspiracy theories and a story of survival and triumph, A God for the Killing brings history and myth to life, captivates with its inventiveness long after the last page is turned.
