Plots of betrayal, intrigue and murder plague the city of Lisbon.

In the center of it all: Don Carlos Carneiro -- Admiral of the Portuguese Navy; close confidant of the Portuguese king; adventurer; family man; and leader of the secret Jewish community in Lisbon.

Come with him to those glorious days of yesteryear in Portugal -- a Portugal that is world-renowned as a sophisticated, cultured, impressive Naval Power and in reality is a land fraught with turbulence and terror, trapped in the powerful grip of the Inquisition. Follow Don Carlos as he connives to free his colleague from the depths of the dungeon, disbands a potential mutiny among the sailors of his fleet, matches wits with the monarchy and the church and, above all -- conducts himself as a brave Marrano. Determined to practice his faith -- albeit secretly -- to the best of his ability, he places his trust in G–d and thus is able to withstand horrendous physical and emotional torture and even the threat of death with courage and pride in his Heritage.

The Persecution is a novel that will grab your interest and not let go to the very last page. It is a story of intrigue and escape, of treachery and loyalty, of courage and conviction -- you won’t be able to put it down.
