Product Description

According to Jewish legend, there are 36 righteous people on Earth at any given time. Without them, humanity would perish. But the 36 do not know they are the chosen ones, and many are dying. A monk in Beijing, an economist in Mumbai, a glassmaker in Venice and more have all perished under bizarre circumstances, with strange marks on their backs.

Veteran Danish detective Niels Bentzon is called to investigate. He’s ready to dismiss the assignment—but then he meets Hannah, a brilliant astrophysicist mourning the death of her son. Together, they piece together the puzzle of these far-flung deaths, and a pattern emerges. Thirty-four have died, and only Bentzon and Hannah can predict the time and place of the final two.


“Like hearing an expert musician perform Mozart. The story is clever, and Vance’s style brings out every nuance. [His] uncanny ability to create a unique style for each character, and his smooth yet convincing ability to turn dialogue into an art form make the performance as memorable as the plot.”
      —AudioFile [Earphones Award]

“A spectacular thriller. . . . This well-crafted twist of Jewish mythology made modern will appeal to fans of Dan Brown or Jennifer Lee Carrell.”
      —Library Journal [starred review]

“The co-authors successfully keep the wheels of their end-of-the-world scenario spinning. . . . As dire as the situation is, this is a good-humored book with a cast of lively and likable characters.”
      —Kirkus Reviews

“A provocative thriller—somewhere between Dan Brown and Stieg Larsson.”
      —Danish Library Review

“Terrifyingly compelling . . . quietly inspiring.”
