Book 3, The Jerusalem Quartet

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The third book in Edward Whittemore’s acclaimed Jerusalem Quartet is a riveting tale of espionage and intrigue in which the outcome of World War II and the destiny of the Middle East could hinge on the true identity of one shadowy man
On a clear night in 1941, a hand grenade explodes in a Cairo bar, taking the life of Stern, a petty gunrunner and morphine addict, nationality unknown, his aliases so numerous that it’s impossible to determine whether he was a Moslem, Christian, or Jew.
His death could easily go unnoticed as Rommel’s tanks charge through the desert in an attempt to take the Suez Canal and open the Middle East to Hitler’s forces. Yet the mystery behind Stern’s death is a top priority for intelligence experts. Master spies from three countries converge on Joe O’Sullivan Beare, who is closer to Stern than anyone, in an effort to unravel the disturbing puzzle. The search for the truth about Stern leads O’Sullivan Beare through the slums of Cairo to a decaying former brothel called the Hotel Babylon, populated by unusual characters. Slowly, the mystery of Stern unravels as Whittemore explores the tragedy and yearning of one man fighting a battle for the human soul.

is the third volume of the Jerusalem Quartet, which begins with Sinai Tapestry and Jerusalem Poker and concludes with Jericho Mosaic.
“As heady as Pynchon, as droll as Vonnegut, and as entertaining as Lawrence of Arabia or Tom Robbins on a great day.” —The Voice Literary Supplement
“One of the most complex and ambitious espionage stories ever written . . . by a wave of his storyteller’s wand Whittemore turns the whole operation into an exploration of the options for good and evil thrown up in terrifying times.” —Publishers Weekly
“Tom Robbins? John Irving? Even God Vonnegut—forget ‘em—read Whittemore.” —Jonathan Carroll, author of After Silence and The Land of Laughs
Edward Whittemore (1933­­­–1995) graduated from Yale University in 1955 and went on to serve as a Marine officer in Japan and spend ten years as a CIA operative in the Far East, Europe, and the Middle East. In addition to writing fiction, he managed a newspaper in Greece, was employed by a shoe company in Italy, and worked in New York City’s narcotics control office during the administration of Mayor John V. Lindsay. He wrote the Jerusalem Quartet while dividing his time between New York and Jerusalem.

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 01, 2002 – Between 1977 and 1987, former CIA operative Edward Whittemore (1933-1995) wrote the Jerusalem Quartet, a surreal historical fantasy that won many plaudits but little renown for its author. This remarkable epic set in the Middle East deserves a new generation of readers and comes with blurbs from Jonathan Carroll, Ellen Datlow and Mike Resnick.
