From the Publisher
From Elie Wiesel, a gripping novel of guilt, innocence, and the
perilousness of judging both.
A plane en route from New York to Tel Aviv is forced down by bad
weather. A nearby house provides refuge for five of its passengers:
Claudia, who has left her husband and found new love; Razziel, a
religious teacher who was once a political prisoner; Yoav, a
terminally ill Israeli commando; George, an archivist who is hiding
a Holocaust secret that could bring down a certain politician; and
Bruce, a would-be priest turned philanderer.
Their host-an enigmatic and disquieting man who calls himself
simply the Judge-begins to interrogate them, forcing them to face
the truth and meaning of their lives. Soon he announces that one of
them-the least worthy-will die.
The Judges is a powerful novel that reflects the
philosophical, religious, and moral questions that are at the heart
of Elie Wiesel's work.
