A chilling apocalyptic thriller about the violent consequences of faith and belief, from the author of The People Next Door.
The final war is coming – but no one told the men on the ground. Holed up in a ransacked building in the heart of occupied territory, two Israeli soldiers are caught under fire: Buddy and Slomo hold their ground. But the real danger comes when two unexpected visitors take refuge: a Texan in a Stetson and the widow of a rabbi, chaperoned by the young and very unstable captain Yossariat.
