Waking up beside a beautiful woman he has no memory of meeting, Detective Jacob Lev investigates a Hollywood Division murder case involving a severed head, an ominous message in Hebrew and the legend of the Golem of Prague.
The legend of the Golem of Prague has endured through the ages: a creature fashioned by a sixteenth-century rabbi to protect his congregation, now lying dormant in the garret of a synagogue. But the Golem is dormant no longer ... Detective Jacob Lev as been assigned to a Special Projects squad he didn't even know existed, and sent to a murder scene far up in the hills of Hollywood Division. There is no body, only an unidentified head lying on the floor of a house. Seared into a kitchen counter nearby is a single word: the Hebrew for justice.
