Legend tell that when Alexander the Great came to Phrygia, the elders placed before him a rope with a knot so complex that no man could unravel it. Whoever could undo the knot, they said, would be the conqueror of all Asia. Without hesitation, Alexander unsheathed his sword and cut through the knot - and went on to conquer the known world. Here, in this novel of suspense and intrigue, is a contemporary Gordian knot: a story of five generations connected by a mysterious and important secret. It is a tale of dedication and treachery, and, above all, a story of the incredible Providence that watches over the Jewish People and every Jew.
David Eliad, the simple moshav farmer whose past life is surrounded by haze and mystery, holds in his hands the end of the Gordian knot, a bond that ties together many different lands and many different generations. What is the secret of the centuries-old will left by the hidden Kabbalist Avigdor Horowitz? What terrible doom will overtake Horowitz's grandchildren - and the entire Jewish nation - if the will isn't discovered? What clue is concealed in the tiny letters written by Roman Spiegel, a sadistic Nazi, and who can foil his hideous plan? The Gordian Knot is a novel of breathtaking suspense and heart stopping drama. It will rivet the reader from its dramatic and mysterious opening pages right through its action-packed climax. The unraveling of the "Gordian Knot" is a moving experience that you will not soon forget.
