The heat of the Negev desert is captured in this collection of three novels by author-diplomat-historian Michael Oren. In House of Bondage , an escaped murderer holds a young woman hostage. In The Maestro of Yerucham , a Russian violinist finds a girl he believes to be the heir to his talents. In Sand Devil , the adolescent son of a fundamentalist family discovers the terrifying secrets of the desert.
