How are the shocking murders of elderly Holocaust survivors connected to the deaths of high school students in Israel and the West Bank?
Palestinian American detective Ben Kamal and his Israeli colleague, Danielle Barnea, soon discover that the answer to this blood-drenched puzzle lies as much in the past as in the present, with the clues leading from a Nazi labor camp to the forefront of modern biotechnological research, while leaving a trail of deception and death behind.
At the center of the mystery lies Paul Hessler, a labor camp escapee and New York billionaire with secrets that stretch back more than sixty years. Hessler is also in possession of a miraculous medical discovery that could affect the lives of thousands&mdashincluding Ben and Danielle's unborn child.
To protect this discovery, and to rescue the future from the hidden evils of the past, this determined couple must travel halfway across the world to come face-to-face with the Keepers of the Gate.
