Norman is the clever one of a close-knit Jewish family in the East End of London--infant prodigy, brilliant barrister, the apple of his parents' eyes--until at forty-one he becomes a drug addict, confined to his bedroom at the mercy of his hallucinations and paranoia. For Norman, his committal to a mental hospital represents the ultimate act of betrayal. For Rabbi Zweck, Norman's father, his son's deterioration is a bitter reminder of his own guilt and failure. Only Bella, the unmarried sister, still in her childhood white ankle socks, can reach across the abyss of pain to bring father and son the elusive peace which they both desperately crave

The sergeants' tale by Bernice Rubens( Book )

"It is 1947, and in the British Mandate of Palestine the political pressure is rising. Jewish immigrants are arriving from Europe in their thousands, smuggled ashore past the armed patrols on the beach. The Wertman family, like the Jewish community, is divided: Avram is a member of the Irgun, a terrorist group fighting to end occupation; his daughter Hannah works for the Haganah, peacefully campaigning for a Jewish state." "David Millar and Will Griffiths are two English sergeants, reluctant conscripts, who transfer to Intelligence in order to escape the appalling scenes on the shores. Half-Catholic, half-Jewish, David has mixed feelings about his work, more so when he meets, befriends and becomes close to Hannah. Will, meanwhile, is finding trouble at the Jerusalem jazz bar where he plays his saxophone." "For Avram, everything is done in the name of 'the cause'. It is something from which he cannot be shaken and, as his story intertwines with those of Will, David and Hannah, it is a belief that pits politics against the personal, family against fervour. Because sometimes when history is being made, homes and hearts can end up being broken."--Jacket

"'Inspector Wilkins was not a religious man, but on the journey to Canterbury, he prayed. He prayed for a fingerprint, a stray fibre, a shoe print. He prayed for a witness. Just one reliable witness. He prayed for a clue of any kind...'" "The killer's modus operandi is the same in each instance: strangulation, always with a guitar string, pulled tight from behind until life is taken. And though the murders are happening up and down the country, there is one other similarity that Inspector Wilkins can't help noticing. Each and every victim is a psychotherapist." "Donald Dorricks is on a mission. Nine shrinks to go and his crusade is complete. Yet, after giving himself up and confessing to the killings, he still protests his innocence. And just as Inspector Wilkins struggles to catch the killer, Dorrick's wife Verine attempts to understand the reasoning behind the murders. Then as her husband's tale emerges, it reveals a past peppered with secrets from which Donald has never been able to escape. Until now."--BOOK JACKET
