A 2018 Notable Indie Book (Shelf Unbound Magazine) Praise from readers: "Unique, amazing, action-packed, dramatic, engaging" "Fully realized characters grappling with real problems" "The characters are real, complex people who deal with shattering personal experiences in very human ways...a page-turner." In this tale from the Judah Halevi Journals, demons unleashed by deeds done with the best of intentions threaten to destroy the best of men. Vienna, 1804. The Baron von Tedesco has become a powerful figure in the Austrian Court by protecting the interests of his Emperor. Now the Baron suspects that the coded Allied messages against Napoleon are being copied on their way to Vienna. He deploys his most trusted associates, Lieutenant-Commander Robert Parker and the Spanish doctor, Judah Halevi Nieto, to uncover the plot. The primary suspect patronizes The Riding Club, an exclusive retreat for the powerful elite who seek pleasures with other men. Parker and Nieto enter that world to nab their prey. Nieto plans to bait the trap with the man their suspect desires most—the young male courtesan known as Cat. Cat's appeal lies in his chameleon-like ability to be everything his clients desire, but, underneath his charming facade, lies a deep sadness studded with rage. Trafficked into prostitution as a young boy, Cat has survived by pleasing others. Through the years of abuse, he has held onto a precious dream: someday he would be rescued by his real family and finally be protected and loved. Nieto promises to find Cat's family after the young man does his bidding to entrap the suspect. But when Cat's full story is finally revealed, the young man's dreams crumble into dust and Judah Halevi can no longer avoid the pain of what he has done in his passionate pursuit of justice. One man rises above personal tragedy to face the future with hope; the other sinks beneath the burden of his guilt.

All his life, Ezekiel Nieto Benzion has been an avid listener. His favorite memories were the hours spent with his grandparents--all immigrants from Eastern Europe--who told stories about their adventures in the old country and in the new one while "kibitzing" over endless games of gin rummy or pinochle. However it was only at the very end of his life that his grandfather revealed the family's greatest secret—an archive of journals and documents written and collected by Doctor Judah Halevi Nieto and kept safe by the family for 200 years. In the journals, Ezekiel found codes and puzzles leading him on paths throughout Europe to uncover the truth of the mysterious doctor's life. What he learned forms the basis of the tales in the series from "The Judah Halevi Journals." In writing the books, Ezekiel is now proudly part of his family's tradition--telling the stories of the old country to a new generation. His first book, You Shall Know Our Names, was named a 2014 National Jewish Book Award Finalist for Outstanding Debut Fiction.
