Luke Benami is twenty-six years old when his father's sudden death compels him to return to Israel from America. Until now, he believed that his father was a great man, an Israeli national hero, and that his brother was the army deserter and criminal his family said he was.

But as he searches for his estranged brother, he begins a dangerous investigation that will challenge every certainty - about his father, his brother and his homeland.

Spellbinding and provocative, Sacrifice of Isaac is a thrilling novel about personal and political choices that probes the dark history of modern Israel.
