Winner of the 1995 British Fantasy Society’s award for Best Novel, nominated for the World Fantasy Award and named one of “Locus’s” best books of 1996.

After the tragic death of his wife, Tom Webster travels to contemporary Jerusalem in search of a lost love and a reason to keep on living. He finds a city haunted by ghosts and djinn, divided by warring religious factions, and hiding ancient secrets that draw him ever closer to a mysterious woman who just might be the restless spirit of Mary Magdalen.
