THE GOLEM OF PARIS by No. 1 New York Times bestselling authors Jonathan and Jesse Kellerman is an extraordinary thriller about secrets that refuse to stay buried.
It's been over a year since LAPD detective Jacob Lev learned the remarkable truth about his family, and he's not coping well. He's back to drinking, he's not talking to his father, the LAPD Special Projects department continues to shadow him, and the memory of a woman named Mai haunts him day and night.
And while Jacob has tried to build a bridge to his mother, she remains a stranger to him, imprisoned inside her own tattered mind.
Then he comes across the file for a gruesome, unsolved murder that brings the two halves of his life into startling collision.
Finding the killer will take him halfway around the world, to Paris - the city of romance, but also its gritty streets, behind the lights. It's a dangerous search for truth that plunges him into the past.
For Jacob Lev, there is no place more frightening.
Jonathan Kellerman has long been known for his mastery of criminal psychology, and his ability to create thrilling novels of nuanced drama and suspense. But in THE GOLEM OF PARIS, he and Jesse Kellerman raise that suspense to a whole new level.
