K.J.A. Wishnia Synopsis: The Fifth Servant by Kenneth Wishnia goes back to 16th century Prague in the shadow of the Papal Inquisition – and introduces a uniquely unforgettable protagonist, a young Talmudic scholar who has three days to solve a heinous murder before official reprisals decimate the city’s Jewish community. It mixes themes of religion, mystery, and intrigue, recreating life in the era when Emperor Rudolph II occupied the throne – a time of uncertainty and fear viewed through the eyes of an intrepid rabbinical student on a quest for truth and justice.
