Matthew Stone, the alienated grandson of a Jewish trigger man for Murder Incorporated, discovers that his father - a dishonored N.Y. judge - has not only been a supporter of the extreme right wing in Israel, but he has kept a secret bank account to support pro-Israeli terrorist activities. It is how to access the mysterious truths inherent in the bank account that constitutes the core of this fast-driving novel. Through thoughtful characterization, Jon Papernick defines the terrifying distinctions that have to be drawn between religious faith and religious zealotry, distinctions that in the end are morally devastating.
