One night in Monaco, my best friend, Maxence, disappeared. I have no idea what Maxence was doing in Monaco that night. Yeah, he loves the Monte Carlo casino—the venue of British spy movies, billionaires, Russian mafia, and roulette. But too many people in Monaco think he might be a danger to them. He never should have been there. But he was. So was Simone. She's trouble from our past at boarding school. Her husband is a good friend of some of the people who would be happier if Maxence wasn’t around anymore. They tell me Maxence was here in the casino, and then a few minutes later, he was gone. Like he dropped off the face of the Earth. Or like he was dropped off a cliff and into the blue Mediterranean Sea, which was just a few feet from where he was standing. Arthur and I are here to find Maxence, no matter what it takes. But we're afraid we'll end up finding his body.

This novel tells the story of the scribes who produced the book of Genesis. It is narrated by Keziah, the wife of Jonathan, one of the scribes. They collected the stories and put them together according to a detailed plan. These same scribes worked in the Jerusalem Academy during the time of the Davidic monarchy about 1000 BCE. The scribes understood their work to be a Royal Epic, and it helped bring Judah and Israel together and legitimize the throne of David. This epic was performed at the dedication of David's palace, and it is interesting to note the interplay between the scribes' text and the performance of the minstrels.
