Rabbi Aharon Handalman's expertise with Torah code - rearranging words and letters in the Bible - has uncovered a man's name.
Who is Yosef Kobinksi, and why did God hide his name in His sacred text?
To find the answers, Aharon begins an investigation, and discovers that Kobinksi, a Polish rabbi, was not only a mystic but also a brilliant physicist.
In Seattle, Jill Talcott's work with energy wave equations is being linked to Yosef Kobinksi, now deceased, who claimed to discover an actual physical law of good and evil.
But when Jill's lab explodes, she is forced to flee for her life, realising her cutting-edge research is far more dangerous than she ever had imagined. Now Jill, her co-researcher, and a writer meet Handalman and trace Kobinksi to Auschwitz.
They find the inexplicable: Kobinksi, drawing on his own alchemy of science and the Kabbalah, made himself vanish from the death camp.
With intelligence agents hot on their trail, the investigators must follow Kobinksi - to wherever he may have gone ...
