A body is found behind the Holy of Holies, the inner sanctum of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. How did it get there? No one can go there. Was it God? The ranking Rabbi of Judea, Gamaliel, The Rabban of the Sanhedin, becomes sleuth extraordinaire and Loukas the physician his trusted assistant.

This is Ramsay's third mystery in the trilogy. His fiction is based in historical fact and proves to be informative as well as intriguing. Frederick, himself, is intriguing. He received his doctorate, served in the army, became an ordained Episcopal priest, authored many scientific papers, is a public speaker and an iconographer.

The cover tells a bigger tale than the book.
