Overview

The sporty twelve year old David Kerzner dreams about a future developing the wooden box with glass eye into what we now know as the present television. It’s 1938. At that time his father takes him to Amsterdam, despite the threat of World War II. His father’s more experienced business partner, a Muslim Palestinian, wisely flees from Europe to Boston.
In Amsterdam the Nazi traitor Corbijn steals all the possessions of the Kerzner family. When the war is over, Corbijn uses Jewish gold and jewels that were meant for David to board one of the German submarines that steam secretly up to Argentina. From now on this traitor becomes Davids strongest competitor, using his heritage while David himself is totally impoverished. The competition is literally killing.
Based on a promise to David’s father, the former business partner, the Muslim Palestinian, steps in to help the younger Jew. However it looks like the Christian Corbijn framed him too. The Palestinian indeed loses money, but his real worthy capital is in the hands of his gardener Habib. Meanwhile Corbijn has to assume his former Dutch partner, a very old and sick man now, is still alive. He is after his revenge.

Three Religions, one killer 3.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 8 reviews.

I chose not to purchase this book because if the description has so many misspellings, I can only imagine what I would get in the novel- juwels, Worldwar, etc. I notice the reviews also have misspellings, which makes me suspect they are created by the same person who did the description. If I'm going to spend 6.99 on a book, it should at least have been spell checked and not have the mistakes my seventh graders make. Honestly, it shouldn't even have one star. Bet you they use loose instead of lose. AAAAARGGHHH

I found this book to be well written, with plenty of detail to bring the characters and settings alive for me. It is part fiction, but also part history, and truly could have taken place during and after World War II. It held my full attention as I learned of the great sacrifice one man gave to save his family. I read of fortunes made and lost, hair-raising escapes, plots and counter-plots. As the story crosses two continents, it focuses on the son of the aforementioned father, following David's life and development from an athletic young man into adulthood. It was fascinating to watch David overcome the trials placed before him as he experiences frustration, unexpected friendships, love and finally success.

This is a pageturner thanks to the adventure and also an eye opener for a part of television history I never read before. The English translation is weak but fully oversheadowed by the very strong story. So I agree with the two other positive comments.
