The 'brilliant, page-turning' (Stephen King) first novel in the genre-transcending Detective Jacob Lev series from bestselling authors Jonathan Kellerman and Jesse Kellerman
From Jonathan Kellerman, the No 1 New York Times-bestselling author and master of psychological suspense, and Jesse Kellerman, the international No 1 bestselling author of The Genius, comes THE GOLEM OF HOLLYWOOD, one of the most remarkable novels of the year. Perfect for fans of Stephen King and David Baldacci. 'An extraordinary work of detection, suspense, and supernatural mystery . . . this book is like nothing I've ever read before. It sort of took my breath away' (Stephen King). 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.
Brilliant, page-turning fiction with mythic underpinnings... The book is like nothing I've ever read before. It sort of took my breath away - Stephen King
Sophisticated, cleverly plotted and satisfying - Sunday Telegraph
High-octane entertainment - The Times
Exceptionally exciting - New York Times
Ingenious and horrifying - The Sunday Times
In the end, the authors pull it off, bringing all the separate storylines together in a convincing manner. If The Golem of Hollywood is as absurd and over the top as its title implies, it also makes for an entertaining ride. - Australian Jewish News
