The union of the two most wicked characters in the bible from the subject of this exciting novel in which Ahab, the playboy King of Israel, woos Jezebel, the dazzling, uninhibited high-priestess of Phoenicia, and makes her his queen.
Ahab doesn’t care about the God of the Hebrews, and barely tolerates Jezebel’s gods, but she is fanatical in her obeisance to them, and unceasingly directs her 750 ministers to propagate the cult of Baal among the Israelites to the point of killing their priests and prophets who decry her idolatry and witchcraft.
Their love is a roller-coaster affair – at times, not too often, he is ‘Ach’ and she, ‘Jez’, but mostly Jezebel practices harlotries, and dances nude in her temple for strange hands to fondle and exhilarate her body. In an exceptional gesture of love, however, Jezebel orchestrates the death of Naboth for her husband to acquire his coveted orchard. Yet, when the king’s concessions to the Elders of Israel lower the status of her idols, she doesn’t hesitate to ignore him.
Jezebel is overcome with loving anxiety before Ahab departs for war where he dies bravely in battle against the Assyrians, in his most shining hour. Prophetically the dogs lick up his blood. Jezebel then performs her farewell dance and veils her face forever.
She is no less courageous. When Jehu, king of Judah, slaughters her priests, destroys her gods, and pursues her, she dresses herself in her finery, paints her eyes, arranges her hair, and jumps to her death before his very eyes. The dogs devour her flesh, as Elijah the Tishbite foretells.
