Requiem

Macmillan, 15.01.1998 - 288 Seiten
After the tragic death of his wife, Katie, Tom Webster travels to modern-day Jerusalem in search of a lost love and a reason to keep on living. He finds a city haunted by ghosts and djinn, divided by warring religious factions, yet offering him no refuge from his guilt and grief. Even his passionate affair with Sharon, an old friend and lover from his college days, cannot save Tom from the madness that appears to be overcoming him, nor hide him from the mysterious, spectral woman who shadows his every step. Only when a dying scholar entrusts him with a previously unknown Dead Sea Scroll does Tom begin to realize that his torment and bizarre hallucinations relate not only to his wife's death, but to another death that shaped the world two thousand years ago... What woman truly haunts Tom's ordeal in Jerusalem? Sharon? Katie? Or the restless spirit of none other than Mary Magdalene?
