Boston/NY: Houghton Mifflin. 1998. A densely plotted political and metaphysical thriller set in contemporary Jerusalem, which was a finalist for the National Book Award. Stone tackles the religious hatreds, political intrigues and spiritual aspirations and malaise that intersect in one of the most historically significant, and volatile, places on earth. In a New York Times Book Review column, a writer commented that nothing she had read prior to going to Jerusalem, with the exception of Stone's Damascus Gate, had prepared her for "the country's unlikely mixture of contemporary folly and biblical mystery."
