Description
Some things are uglier than homicide - and ultimately as dangerous. For Barry Lewis, a Los Angeles attorney famous for handling controversial cases, danger comes in the form of a note on his front door: "The Angel of Death spared your forefathers - will he spare you?" To LAPD detective Jessie Drake, the message is as ominous as the red paint smeared across Lewis's doorposts and the Star of David scrawled across his door. Is this threat intended only for Lewis, or for the entire Jewish community? Lewis, Jessie soon learns, is everyone's enemy. Especially now that he's representing a group of neo-Nazis, Holocaust deniers, and skinheads who want to parade through two predominantly Jewish neighborhoods on Hitler's birthday. The Jewish community, enraged, is preparing for a confrontation. Lewis - who is the son of Holocaust survivors and does not sympathize with any hate groups - is determined to defend his clients' First Amendment rights. But at what cost? How will the police maintain public order? How many lives are at stake? With the date of the parade looming before her, Jessie intensifies her investigation and starts to examine her own beliefs, her own prejudices, her own feelings towards a historical event that snuffed out the lives of millions of innocent people. Hate suddenly turns to homicide. As Jessie desperately searches for leads among extremists of all stripes, she'll uncover revelation after revelation: about the case, about her city, about herself. Meanwhile, passions are rising. Violence threatens to erupt again. And the "angel of death" hovers nearby...
