At the age of 12, Absalom Feinberg founded a group aimed at ousting the Ottoman Empire from his country and thus initiated an epic story. He was passionate about literature and nature. He enjoyed adventures in the desert as well as in Belle Époque’s Paris. He was intertwined in love affaires and smoothed the path for the British army during World War I.
Few young men made so much History.
His adventures weaved an enigma that continued to remain unsolved until half a century after his mysterious death. The narrator of this story, that combines the thrill of true saga with the weight of History, is a so-called “historical detective” that in 1967 is determined to investigating Feinberg’s death and the multiple clues that he left behind. In this way we enter a world at the same time familiar and exotic, studied and unknown, of courageous espionage and cruel battles, of pertinacious idealism and of the great sensitivity that elevates the human condition.
The unique style of Marcos Aguinis and the deep erudition of Gustavo Perednik meet in this book. The result is a novel of suspense and thrilling action, a story that will only unveil itself toward the end, leaving the reader absolutely stunned.
