    *Starred Review* Daniella Goodman has lived her life in search of religious fulfillment. Steeped in Jewish teachings at a prestigious day school and an Orthodox summer camp, she finds herself far too busy with pre-med studies at the University of Pennsylvania to seek out religiously like-minded friends. Until she meets Steven, a devout Jewish scholar who prefers to be called "Shlomie." His religious interests skew toward the mystical and fanatical, and Daniella soon finds herself wrapped up in Shlomie's enthusiasm. Before long, she and Shlomie move to Israel to start a family and to further their religious education. Isolated from their friends and families and blinded by their quest for piety, Daniella, Shlomie, and their growing family become a target for one of Israel's most abusive, horrifying cults. Detective Bina Tzedek is tasked with unraveling the threads of pain, prayer, and prophecy in the most difficult case of her career. Ragen draws on the tactics of cult leaders and on victim testimony to craft this exploration of religious fanaticism, weaving togethervicious description of abuse and the Goodmans' higher-minded desires for purity. Readers of Gillian Flynn's Dark Places (2009) and Emma Donoghue's Room (2010) will be drawn to this terrifying and compelling novel, Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
