(From the publisher):
Hatred stains Jerusalem's golden streets blood-red in Anna Mitgutsch's suspenseful and timely novel of love, trust, and betrayal. When Devorah, an Austrian woman, seeks the truth of her family's elusive past, her research leads her to Jerusalem, an enigmatic place of mystic force and primitive violence where pilgrims and adventure-seekers mingle daily with deadly Jewish and Palestinian nationalists. Beguiled by Jerusalem's sensual power, Devorah begins an erotic adventure with Sivan, a young Palestinian, and rejects warnings that his seduction might be politically motivated. Yet the sweet intensity of their passion is poisoned by suspicion and divided loyalties, and when her lover disappears, Devorah fears she may be an unwitting accomplice to an act of terror.
