Quin's Shanghai circus by Edward Whittemore( Book )

In Edward Whittemore's masterful and surreal alternate history, a man's search for answers about his vanished parents propels him on an odyssey from the present into the past, from a bar in the Bronx to Tokyo and Shanghai during the Second World War. Quin, born in China and raised in the Bronx, is orphaned in the closing days of the Second World War when his parents go missing and are presumed dead in Shanghai. Years later, in a Bronx bar, Quin encounters a stranger who hints that he can uncover the secrets of his past by accompanying Big Gobi, an adult orphan too simpleminded to travel alone, on a journey to meet his guardian in Tokyo. Quin arrives in Japan determined to uncover the truth about his parents' past, but his search soon raises more questions than answers. What are the connections between a Russian anarchist, a one-eyed baron who is head of the Japanese secret service known as the Kempeitai, and the atrocities committed during the rape of Nanking? And what does any of it have to do with Quin's parents?

Le quatuor de Jérusalem by Edward Whittemore( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in French and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Troisième volet d'un roman d'aventures aux proportions épiques et à l'imagination débordante, qui fait fi des contraintes habituelles de la raison, entraînant le lecteur dans les tourmentes du Moyen-Orient du début du 19e siècle à la guerre des Six Jours. Le point de départ: le manuscrit le plus ancien de la Bible, trouvé par un moine albanais dans le Sinaï, au 19e siècle, et qu'il s'emploie à trafiquer pour éviter le scandale que sa révélation entraînerait. Mais viennent épicer et complexifier le récit les destins excentriques d'un lord britannique qui parcourt nu les déserts du Moyen-Orient, d'un antiquaire juif arabe, vieux de deux ou trois siècles et qui ne sait plus trop qui il est ainsi que d'un jeune révolutionnaire irlandais qui fuit la répression anglaise.

Nile shadows by Edward Whittemore( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
On a clear night in 1941, a hand grenade explodes in a Cairo bar, taking the life of Stern, a petty gunrunner and morphine addict, nationality unknown, his aliases so numerous that it's impossible to determine whether he was a Moslem, Christian, or Jew. His death could easily go unnoticed as Rommel's tanks charge through the desert in an attempt to take the Suez Canal and open the Middle East to Hitler's forces. Yet the mystery behind Stern's death is a top priority for intelligence experts. Master spies from three countries converge on Joe O'Sullivan Beare, who is closer to Stern than anyone, in an effort to unravel the disturbing puzzle. The search for the truth about Stern leads O'Sullivan Beare through the slums of Cairo to a decaying former brothel called the Hotel Babylon, populated by unusual characters. Slowly, the mystery of Stern unravels as Whittemore explores the tragedy and yearning of one man fighting a battle for the human soul. Nile Shadows is the third volume of the Jerusalem Quartet, which begins with Sinai Tapestry and Jerusalem Poker and concludes with Jericho Mosaic
Sinai tapestry : a novel by Edward Whittemore( file )

Sinai Tapestry, the brilliant first novel of the Jerusalem Quartet, is an epic alternate history of the Middle East in which the discovery of the original Bible links a disparate group of remarkable people across time and space. In 1840, Plantagenet Strongbow, the twenty-ninth Duke of Dorset, seven-feet-seven-inches tall and the greatest swordsman and botanist of Victorian England, walks away from the family estate and disappears into the Sinai Desert carrying only a large magnifying glass and a portable sundial. He emerges forty years later as an Arab holy man and anthropologist, now the author of a massive study of Levantine sex--and the secret owner of the Ottoman Empire. Meanwhile, Skanderbeg Wallenstein has discovered the original Bible, lost on a dusty bookshelf in the monastery library. To his amazement, it defies every truth held by the three major religions. Nearly a century later, Haj Harun, an antiquities dealer who has acted as guardian of the Holy City for three thousand years, uncovers the hidden Bible. Sinai Tapestry is the first volume of the Jerusalem Quartet, which continues with Jerusalem Poker, Nile Shadows, and Jericho Mosaic

Yossi is an ideal agent for the Mossad--an Iraqi Jew, an idealist, and a charming loner, fluent in Arab dialects. Tajar, a brilliant agent, recruits and manages Yossi, code-named the Runner. Thus begins the longest-running and most successful operation in the history of Israeli intelligence. Yossi's cover is Halim, a Syrian businessman who has returned home from Buenos Aires and whose charm inspires high-level friendships. His reputation leads to an opportunity that he can't refuse: Tajar becomes a double agent infiltrating Syrian intelligence. Meanwhile, in the desert oasis of Jericho, Abu Musa, an Arab patriarch, and Moses the Ethiopian, meet each day over games of shesh-besh and glasses of Arak to ponder history and humanity. We learn about the friendship of Yossi's son, Assaf, an Israeli soldier badly wounded during the Six Day War, and Yousef, a young Arab teacher who, in support of the Palestinian cause, decides to live as an exile in the Judean wilderness. Jericho Mosaic is the final volume of the Jerusalem Quartet, which begins with Sinai Tapestry, Jerusalem Poker, and Nile Shadows
