About the Book

In 1939, a Jewish geology student discovers a large uranium deposit in western Syria. Knowledge of this strategic treasure is kept secret until the birth of the Jewish state in 1948, when a complicated plan is set in motion by an Israeli mastermind to steal the uranium from the Syrians. This is the beginning of a multi-layered odyssey of familial discovery, terrorism, love, and revenge. Set in the Middle East, Sicily, New York City, and the western United States, and spanning three centuries, “Thicker Than Water” is a four-book tale of a family of Sicilian Jews and how they deal with ancient and modern vendettas.
