The Warsaw Anagrams is a chilling mystery set inside the Warsaw Ghetto in the early 1940s. Narrated by an elderly psychiatrist who seeks to avenge the death of his beloved great-nephew, the novel’s compelling characters and moving evocation of daily life in the Ghetto earned Richard Zimler 2010 Book of the Year honours in Portugal, where he lives.

In The Seventh Gate, the fourth volume of Richard Zimler’s series, Isaac Zarco, a distant relative of the 16th-century Portuguese kabbalist, becomes convinced by the pact between Hitler and Stalin that an apocalyptic prophesy made by his ancestor is about to come terribly true. Is he mad to believe that by decoding these ancient texts he might be the one to save the world? A love story, tragedy and a tale of ferocious heroism set in 1930s Berlin.
