Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A true-life thriller about the journey of one of the worlds most precious manuscripts—the 10th century annotated Hebrew Bible known as the Aleppo Codex—from its hiding place in an ancient Syrian synagogue to the newly-founded Israel. Using his research, including documents which have been secret for 50 years and interviews with key players, AP correspondent Friedman tells a story of political upheaval, international intrigue, charged courtroom battles, obsession, and subterfuge.

Synopsis:

The intriguing story of the quest to recover the missing pages from one of the world’s most important holy texts: the 1,000-year-old Hebrew Bible known as Aleppo Codex.
