Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"New York homicide detectives pursue a serial killer in this apocalyptic thriller. When detectives James Manning and Covina 'Dewey' Duwai are called in to investigate a series of bizarre murders, they make a shocking discovery: the legend of the hidden righteous ones, the 36 who preserve the world from destruction, is no legend at all. They are real, and they are being murdered. As the bodies pile up and the world tilts into chaos, Manning and Dewey must protect the righteous ones from a ruthless killer able to beguile his victims and command them against their will. The detectives find their traditional arsenal of bullets and blades of little use against a foe who seems to anticipate their every move. Joining forces with a disgraced but brilliant rabbinical scholar and a renowned anthropologist--who's also the last of the righteous ones--Manning and Dewey set off on a perilous quest from New York to Gehenna to defeat a murderer who won't stop until he's killed everyone."-- Provided by publisher.

    In 2034, amid a climate apocalypse of raging superstorms, floods, and drought, NYPD detectives Covina "Dewey" Duwai and Jim Manning track a killer bent on destroying humanity. They've linked an energy department undersecretary's murder to the killings of three climate-change activists whose bodies all bear strange "LV" marks. Certain that those marks are the key, the detectives follow an anonymous tip that the markings represent the Jewish Lamed Vev ("hidden ones") legend. According to the legend, God promised not to punish humanity while 36 hidden righteous men live on Earth. After Manning and Dewey's search for an expert on the legend leads to another murder and a violent encounter with the killer, they find an unlikely ally in their tipster. Rabbi Rachel Davidson is also hunting the killer, armed with a list of the righteous she's created using a controversial algorithm. The story, told through Dewey's case notes, is an absorbing take on good vs. evil, and disasters pulled from today's headlines lend unsettling realism to the supernatural-tinged apocalyptic setting.
