"In February 2000, Richard Zimler went to Australia for the Perth Writers' Festival. The day he arrived, he met a talented dancer who told him how much his novel The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon had meant to her. The tragic step she would take the next day would change Zimler's life for ever, and launch him into an intense, three-year investigation of her past." "He discovers a childhood lived in the shade of Mount Carmel in the 1950s, a time of tolerance between neighboring Arabs and Jews in the old districts of Haifa. As this peace becomes fragile, two girls - one Palestinian, one Israeli - nevertheless forge a lifelong bond. Zimler's quest uncovers the story of this friendship, though it leads him through a web of illusion, cruelty and deceit and finally to September 11, 2001, when the tragedy he witnessed in Perth is set in the starkest of political contexts."--Jacket

Chief Inspector Henrique Monroe of the Lisbon Police Department is not your usual cop. Eccentric, elliptical - and stunningly observant - his peculiar behavior at crime scenes is legendary. But his colleagues put up with it because, in the end, Monroe's the best of the best. But he has a double-sided secret. And when he's called to investigate the brutal slaying of well-connected Portuguese businessman Pedro Coutinho, it's not just the murder case that will unravel - but his own identity, too. As Monroe's investigations lead him deep into a torrid world of shady political corruption and sexual violence, the details of the case trigger memories from his childhood in rural Colorado - memories he has travelled far, and worked hard, to hide. His behavior becomes even more upsetting and inappropriate than usual, and even his family - his wife, his brother and his two young boys - start to fear for the man they thought they knew. Henrique struggles to move his investigation forward whilst keeping the walls of his identity from crumbling. And then, another violent crime changes his life forever, destroying any chance he has of continuing to keep his secret ... A chilling psychological mystery, this is a uniquely moving portrait of a troubled police detective and his family when a single crime reveals the damaging impact of abuse and the tragic truth about an entire nation

The last kabbalist of Lisbon by Richard Zimler( )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon is an extraordinary novel that transports listeners into the universe of Jewish Kabbalah during the Lisbon massacre of April 1506. Just a few years earlier, Jews living in Portugal were dragged to the baptismal font and forced to convert to Christianity. Many of these "New Christians" persevered in their Jewish prayers and rituals in secret and at great risk; the hidden, arcane practices of the kabbalists, a mystical sect of Jews, continued as well. One such secret Jew was Berekiah Zarco, an intelligent young manuscript illuminator. Inflamed by love and revenge, he searches, in the crucible of the raging pogrom, for the killer of his beloved uncle Abraham, a renowned kabbalist and manuscript illuminator, discovered murdered in a hidden synagogue along with a young girl in dishabille. Risking his life in streets seething with mayhem, Berekiah tracks down answers among Christians, New Christians, Jews, and the fellow kabbalists of his uncle, whose secret language and codes by turns light and obscure the way to the truth he seeks

Goa ou o Guardião da Aurora by Richard Zimler( )

1 edition published in 2012 in Portuguese and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Na colónia portuguesa de Goa, no final do séc. XVI, a Inquisição fazia enormes progressos na sua missão de impedir todos os 'bruxos' - quer fossem nativos hindus, quer imigrantes judeus - de praticarem as suas crenças tradicionais. Os que se recusavam a denunciar outros ou a renunciar à sua fé eram estrangulados por carrascos ou queimados em autos-de-fé. Ao viver nos limites do território colonial, a família Zarco consegue manter firmes as suas raízes luso-judaicas. Tiago e a irmã, Sofia, gozam uma infância tranquila, aprendendo com o pai a ilustrar manuscritos e mergulhando no caos inebriante das festividades hindus celebradas pela sua amada cozinheira Nupi. Quando as crianças atingem a idade adulta, a família é destroçada quando primeiro o pai e depois o filho são presos pela Inquisição. Mas quem poderia tê-los traído? De um rigor histórico notável, Goa ou O Guardião da Aurora é simultaneamente um policial histórico absorvente e, na sua profunda exploração da natureza do mal, uma poderosa reinterpretação do Othello de Shakespeare. Na linha dos seus romances históricos anteriores - O Último Cabalista de Lisboa e Meia-Noite ou O Princípio do Mundo, Richard Zimler dá-nos um livro imaginativo, estimulante e profundamente sensível
