Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My inspiration stems from my interests in Kabbalah, in Jerusalem's history, and thriller novels. Three issues are not necessarily related, but they have a lot in common.

Why are so many people today interested in Kabbalah? Its books? Its ideas? Its scholars? Despite thousands of years, technological developments, social changes and scientific discoveries, Kabbalistic texts still sound fresh, intriguing and secretive - as if they were written recently.
I think most people believe that beyond the everyday life we live, it is necessary to put life on another element, based on real and more spiritual. Kabbalah is actually the nature and essence of humans chasing after that elusive element.

There are facts we did not know at all three thousand years and learned about three hundred years ago (the structure of the solar system, for example). There are events that we never thought were possible three hundred years ago, and now they are happening today (from heart transplants to walks on the moon). There are things we don't know now, but we might know about them in three hundred years; there are phenomena we might not know or understand even after another three thousand years .

Kabbalah is a real courageous attempt to try and understand what is behind the screen. We are trying to grab what cannot be perceived, understand what cannot be understood, and see and hear what cannot be heard or seen. And despite the difficult Sisyphean goal, we are still trying to achieve reception in every generation. It is a source of attraction and probably will remain so for many years to the future as well.

I was interested in Kabbalah since I was young. All my studies in this subject took place in Jerusalem, a magical and challenging city that most people on the globe have heard of. I always wondered why all monotheistic religions admire Jerusalem. Is it a coincidence or not? And why was it easier to conquer Jerusalem than to control it? Why have no conquerors managed to shape the city (though many have tried)? And to this we have to add the largest question of all: how and why has the city shaped the current spiritual world?

Thriller novels always grabbed me simply because the subject matter. Quality thrillers are not only interesting and stimulating, but they encourage readers to think in ways and directions they didn't even know of.  And the better the literature, the more fascinating and intriguing the questions are. Altogether, what could be more intriguing than questions about the nature of Kabbalah and the uniqueness of Jerusalem?

The combination of all these created this book.

There are two books here. The history of Jerusalem is seen through its conquerors. It's where the author's strength lies, until it is conquered by one of his (or the translator's) major weaknesses: the inability (or refusal) to proofread. The mystery story begins with a complex but interesting premise that stretches kabbalah legend to the breaking point. Add the author's inability to flesh out characters, an irresistible need to begin far too many paragraphs with, "Suddenly..." along with a preposterous beat-the-clock 007-ish ending, and you have a bit of a mess.

The writing itself is so awkward one wonders if the author ever re-reads his work. Some of it falls to the translator who cannot be faulted for Mr. Erez's lack of craft. Dialogue is stilted, descriptions are general rather than specific, and those history lessons are never incorporated into the story proper. An intellectual work of crime fiction would be delightful. This book ranks as a pretender.

My interest and involvement in kabbalah, along with my love of a good mystery, brought me to this book with anticipation. I had to force myself to finish it. Mr.Erez would be well-served by a critically-oriented writing workshop where he would have to learn his craft.

The author has several doctorates, and refers to holding a "classified service position for the State of Israel." He also holds black belts in various martial arts disciplines. His author photo hides his face while he looks out over Jerusalem. Is this supposed to add to his "mystique"?

I honestly had no idea what the Kabbalah was before reading this novel, but my friend highly recommended The Kabbalistc Murder Code. Once I started reading it I realized why she so highly recommended it.

A fast paced thriller with murder and mystery, what's not to love? It doesn't stop there as it is also a great source of the history of the Kabballah as well. I always love it when I can learn something new in a painless way.

It all begins when the main character, Elijah, accepts his dream job not realizing that it will change his life in more ways than he bargained for.

Loved it!

The Kabbalistic Murder Code is a suspenseful mystery novel following Elijah in his efforts to decode an ancient file, but without giving away any spoilers, conflicts arise to make Elijah's job even harder. I enjoyed the way the plot unfolded and surprised me and especially uncovering the history of the Kabbalah as I read! This was my first time reading an international thriller, but boy, what a great place to start! Having been burned out on reading for a while this was just the thing to kick-start my interests again and give me a fun new genre to explore. I appreciate the way the author made this an action-packed adventure when other authors might have let the drama take up too much of the time resulting in a dry read. But not here! The author really knows how to pull it together in an intriguing way.

If you're a fan of mystery novels, "The Kabbalistic Murder Code" is the book to read. It's exciting with a lot of surprising twists, and the author provides some great information on the history of Kabbalah. The main character, Elijah, is given no ordinary task when he is asked to decipher an ancient document. There are different themes interwoven within the story, including religion, drama, and history. It reminds me of the type of story line found in an Indiana Jones movie. I love action and adventure, and this book certainly has all that. It kept me entertained until the very end. I have to say that I enjoyed this novel.

The Kabbalistic Murder Code is a fast paced and action packed murder mystery thriller that seamlessly weaves together historic and religious nonfiction with exciting and rich fiction for a thoroughly entertaining and enriching tale.

Author Nathan Erez has provided an engaging and informative look at Kabbalah and the history of Jerusalem. The nonfiction aspect of this book has furthered my knowledge of these things in an illuminating and entertaining way.

The fiction aspect of this story is edge of your seat thrills that illustrates the true talent of Author Nathan Erez. The puzzles, suspense, murders and urgency all coalesce to bring about an exciting climax that absolutely satisfies. I highly recommend it!

I found this book to be interesting despite getting lost every now and again. Interesting how life is reflected throughout history. The struggle between good and evil. I would expect history buffs and those with religious back grounds to be interested in the story.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. If you're a fan of mystery novels, "The Kabbalistic Murder Code" is definitely the next book to add to your list to read. It is full of excitement, it has some well thought out surprises and twists.

As a bonus, there is a ton of historical information on Kabbalah, which I also found fascinating. I really liked that the author took the time to take parts of Jerusalem's history and begin each chapter with various lessons from it.

The book is written well, it is very easy to read and follow, the descriptions are wonderful, the book is very well developed and put together, as I said, I completely enjoyed reading this book.

I highly recommend.
