A secular Jew spends his life as a prosecutor in Los Angeles. He goes to the California desert town of Borrego Springs and comes to believe he is a direct descendant of Aaron, Moses’s older brother. He leaves his job, his family, and departs on a mystical and magical journey that brings him to a revelation. He decides he is compelled to build the Temple of Solomon in the desert town. But to get this done, he encounters drug dealers, neo-Nazis, Arab sheiks, and a few billionaires. He picks up some desert characters that will take bullets for him, and they do.
The journey mixes real events, true archeology, and historical figures with the creations of the novel. The challenge for the reader is to identify fact from fiction. It is one wild, raucous ride that has most unexpected turns and stops along the way. There is nothing like this—part history, part religion, and part mysticism.
And you will wonder: is this fantasy, prophesy, or reality?
