Description

-a gripping novel of betrayal, where the past ruthlessly crashes into the present- It's August in Bryant Park, New York. A man with fiery eyes hovers on the edge of a grisly mystery. Five hundred years earlier, Rozas, a Marrano or Secret Jew, is betrayed -- anonymously reported to the Spanish Holy Office of The Inquisition. Dragged into an underground dungeon, Rozas is tortured, forced to confess crimes against the church, and convicted of heresy. The Inquisitors demand that she reveal the fate of her three young daughters. She refuses. Rozas is burned alive at the stake; the secret dies with her. The story jumps seamlessly in time, connecting Rozas, the man with fiery eyes, and characters that amble across Bryant Park's Great Lawn. Suddenly three women find each other in the park. Time freezes. The man is ready. Something unthinkable is about to happen.
