Residue

(2010)
A novel by

 
A firebombing of a black church in Brooklyn that was once a synagogue sets off a chain reaction of international intrigue and bloody violence.

The fire bombers are young men of Arab extraction who mistakenly believe that this church, whose stain glass windows illustrate the Star of David, is still a synagogue. In the wake of the bombing, a prominent white-shoe Wall Street firm sends its young, token Jewish lawyer to help the church, pro bono, in their insurance claim. In a walled-off area exposed by the fire in the basement of the church, the pastor has found three huge trunks filled with gold and precious jewels worth multimillions.

The bizarre journey of this treasure, where it has come from and how it got in the basement of a black church is the heart of this tantalizing story which deals with both the origin and the aftermath of the discovery, and the impact it has on the lives of the young lawyer, his family, the pastor of the Church, and numerous other interlocking characters who suddenly surface with claims to its provenance.

It makes for a compelling and suspenseful story of terror and greed and illustrates how the long tail of the past can reach into the present with life-altering results.
