The Hoshiyan Chronicles
Seeking the Light of Justice
Seeking the Light of Justice is a thriller ahead of its time, though not by much. It reads like a preview of the Final Redemption, often mirroring present-day events (even though it was written some ten years ago). It is a murder mystery and science fiction all at once. In its imaginative world building, it is like Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings.
The style is stunningly cinematic. The opening scenes introduce the mysterious legend of The Light of Justice, ranging from Africa to Italy. The story is complex. The mystery unfolds bit by bit, masterfully. Yoshua, an archaeology professor from Hebrew University from an Israeli anti-terror unit searches for signs of the legend but doesn’t know why. He also doesn’t know that the legend is real. Yoshua’s family, friends and colleagues do know, but they can’t tell him.
In Spain, Yoshua makes a stunning discovery: a book containing mysteries of the Spanish Inquisition, and parallel mysteries of Yoshua’s own family. He and his colleagues unwittingly create an international incident, and the Spanish government won’t stop at anything to conceal the shock of what the Israelis revealed.

Seeking the Light of Justice is a well-written easy to read faith-based novel. The series is based on three principles: faith, righteousness and justice. Stories abound about the Light of Justice in various cultures around the world. During a routine dismantling of an antique book's binding, Israeli Archaeologist Professor Yoshua Rosenberg discovers the cover page of the Hoshiyan Chronicles. On the cover page is the name of the place where the work was written. This is the professor’s first solid clue in his quest for the legendary king, The Light of Justice.
Following the professor's Internet posting, the Pope is notified of the find by Vatican security. He ventures into an underground vault and finds an ancient directive to destroy all copies of the Hoshiyan Chronicles.
While researching archives in Granada, the professor finds his next clue, a former synagogue converted to a now vacant chapel. Professor Rosenberg negotiates to buy it. While at the land registry office in Cordoba to transfer the deed of ownership, a suspicious briefcase catches the professor's eye. The professor saves many lives; the briefcase contained a bomb planted by the Basque Separatist movement. The Spanish press declares Yoshua a hero.
Upon transfer of ownership, a local priest provides the professor with an old set of blueprints for the chapel. While examining them, the professor discovers that the outer dimensions exceed those of the interior, indicating an additional room that was sealed off.
When the professor and his team breach the walls, they discover a monstrous horror: 46 tortured mummies, the remnant of a Jewish community tortured by the Inquisition and sealed behind a double brick wall. Thus, their place of worship became their tomb. Eight books were found with the bodies.
Thus starts the trials and tribulations of Yoshua's team opposite the Spanish government, Basque terrorists, and the Vatican. Join me in reading a fast-paced action-packed thriller.
