The Butcher's Theater by Jonathan Kellerman, Ben Kingsley

They call the ancient hills of Jerusalem the butcher's theater: Here, upon this bloodstained stage, a faceless killer performs his violent specialty: The first to die brutally is a fifteen-year-old girl. She is drained of blood, then carefully bathed and shrouded in white. Precisely one week later, a second victim is found.

From the sacred Wailing Wall to the monasteries where dark secrets are cloistered, from black-clad bedouin enclaves to labyrinthine midnight alleys, veteran police inspector Daniel Sharavi and his crack team plunge deep into a city simmering with religious and political passions to hunt for a murderer whos insatiable taste for young Arab women could destroy the delicate balance on which Jerusalem's very survival depends.

A brilliant novel by a master of the genre, a vivid look at the tortured complexities of a psychopath's mind, a rich evocation of a city steeped in history -- this, and more, is The Butcher's Theatre.

"Crisp...suspenseful... intense." -- The New York Times Book Review

"Spellbinding... a fascinating tale." -- Time

"A finish as tense and suspensful as that of The Day Of The Jackal or Eye Of The Needle " -- USA Today

"This one is going to scare the hell out of a lot of people on its way to the bestseller lists" -- Elmore Leonard

The Butcher's Theatre is one of the best books that i've read. It takes you on a ride that you don't want to finish, I never wanted to put the book down. Jonathan Kellerman knows how to grip his readers with intrigue, mystery and a good dose of suspense that makes this book a must read.
