1580: Increasingly harsh persecution of the Jews of Prague prompts Rabbi Yehudah Loevy ben Bezalel, the Maharal, to create a supernatural protector out of clay: The Golem. After many dangerous battles, the persecutors are defeated, and, for safety's sake, the Golem is retired. 1605: The long-lost Choshen Mishpat - the Breastplate of Judgment, worn by the Kohen Gadol, the High Priest of ancient Israel and treasured by the Jewish people - is rediscovered, then stolen and abused. The newly-won peace of three countries hangs in jeopardy. Four lives - and the fate of generations to follow - are at stake. The Maharal of Prague again must help - and the Golem is back in this exciting, mystical adventure-mystery!
