Amish country in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, has always been a place of quiet beauty—until a shocking murder shatters the peace, and leaves a troubled detective picking up the pieces…

After her husband is murdered, Detective Elizabeth Harris turns in her NYPD badge and moves back home, hoping that a quiet life in remote Pennsylvania Dutch country will help her overcome the dark memories of her ten years in New York. But when a beautiful, scantily clad “English” girl is found dead in the barn of a prominent Amish family, Elizabeth knows that she’s uncovered an evil that could shake the community to its core.

Elizabeth’s boss is convinced this was the work of an “English,” as outsiders are called in Lancaster County. But Elizabeth isn’t so sure. All she’s missing is an actual lead—until another body is found: this time, a missing Amish girl. Now Elizabeth must track down a killer with deep ties to a community that always protects its own—no matter how deadly the cost…

Jane Jensen
“Powerful . . . A combustible mixture of science and mysticism, a high-altitude
thriller fizzing with intrigue.” –JOHN CASE, Author of The Eighth Day

In a breathless thriller that explores the relationship between science and the divine, good and evil, space and time, Jane Jensen takes us from the world we know into a reality we could only scarcely imagine. Until now.

Rabbi Aharon Handalman’s expertise with Torah code–rearranging words and letters in the Bible–has uncovered a man’s name. Who is Yosef Kobinski, and why did God hide his name in His sacred text? To find the answers, Aharon begins an investigation, and discovers that Kobinski, a Polish rabbi, was not only a mystic but also a brilliant physicist who authored what may be the most important lost work in human history.

In Seattle, Jill Talcott’s work with energy wave equations is being linked to Yosef Kobinski, now deceased, who claimed nearly fifty years ago that he discovered an actual physical law of good and evil. But when Jill’s lab explodes, she is forced to flee for her life, realizing that her cutting-edge research is far more dangerous than she ever has imagined. And that powerful people have a stake in what she may have uncovered.

Now Jill, her research partner, and a writer fascinated by Kobinski are about to meet Handalman in Poland–all four desperate to solve the astonishing riddle. Searching through the past, they trace Kobinski to a clearing in the woods near Auschwitz. And in that clearing they come face-to-face with the inexplicable: that Kobinski, drawing on his own alchemy of science and the Kabbalah, made himself vanish from the death camp in a blaze of fire. Now, with intelligence agents hot on their trail, the investigators have no choice. They must follow Kobinski –to wherever he may have gone. . . .

Jane Jensen
La pericia del rabino Aharon Handalman con el código de la Tora (al volver a disponer las palabras y las letras de la Biblia) ha descubierto el nombre de un hombre. ¿Quién es Yosef Kobinski y por qué escondió Dios su nombre en Su texto sagrado? Para encontrar las respuestas, Aarón empieza una investigación y descubre que Kobinski, un rabino polaco, no solo era un místico sino también un físico brillante que escribió lo que quizá haya sido la obra perdida más importante de la historia de la humanidad. En Seattle, el trabajo de Jill Talcott con las ecuaciones de ondas de energía se vincula a Yosef Kobinski, ya fallecido, que afirmó casi cincuenta años antes haber descubierto una ley física que explica el bien y el mal. Pero cuando el laboratorio de Jill explota, se ve obligada a huir para salvar su vida y se da cuenta de que su última investigación es mucho más peligrosa de lo que jamás hubiera imaginado. Y que hay gente muy poderosa que tiene muchos intereses creados en lo que podría haber descubierto. Ahora, Jill, su compañero de investigación y un escritor fascinado por la figura de Kobinski están a punto de conocer a Handalman en Polonia; los cuatro desesperados por solucionar esta asombrosa adivinanza. Al investigar el pasado, siguen las huellas de Kobinski hasta un claro de los bosques cercanos a Auschwitz. Y en ese claro se enfrentan cara a cara con lo inexplicable: que Kobinski, tras hacer uso de su propia mezcla alquímica de ciencia y cábala, consiguió desvanecerse del campo de la muerte en una explosión de fuego. Ahora, con los agentes del servicio de inteligencia siguiendo su rastro de cerca, los investigadores no tienen más alternativa. Deben seguir a Kobinski allá donde fuera...
