Revue de presse:

A narrative spiced by snippets of Hebrew and Arabic, Yiddish and German . . . A vivid rendering of Jerusalem's complexities . . . Blends the structure of a race-against-time thriller with the lavish prose of a certain kind of literary novel (Hephzibah Anderson Daily Mail)

A nail-biting finale involves the entire ensemble, and the resolution is dramatic. Although The Third Day deals with some terrible memories, on the whole it is charming and entertaining. (Belletrista)

Anyone with a passing interest in Jewish history would enjoy this book, although it does not shy from the horror (For Book's Sake)

'a glowing heart and a compelling conclusion' Irish Times. (Irish Times)

A story of retribution on both a personal and grand scale that is quite simply gripping to read (Bookbag)

'A vivid rendering of Jerusalem's complexities ... she persuasively blends the structure of a race-against-time thriller with the lavish prose of a certain kind of literary novel' Daily Mail. (Daily Mail)

'An exceptional novel by an exceptional woman' Emilie Grangeray, Le Monde. (Le Monde)

'History, emotion, passion, drama ... The bow of Chochana Boukhobza does wonders' Marianne Payot, L'Express. (L'Express)

'It's a story of retribution and dealing with the past but without the introspection that normally goes with such stories. It's a gripping read' Bookbag. (Bookbag)

Présentation de l'éditeur:

A leading Israeli musician and her protégé return to Jerusalem for three days to perform with the Philharmonic Orchestra. Both women - one a gifted young cellist, one a Holocaust survivor saved by her extraordinary musical talent - have been in America for some time, are quickly caught up in tangled threads from former lives. Elisheva is reunited with her godson, Daniel; Rachel must face both her distant father and Erytan, a former lover, whose lingering power over her now threatens all she has worked for.

Elisheva is coaching Rachel for the solo performance, but something else has drawn her to Jerusalem. Another old friend has lured a Nazi eugenicist, the Butcher of Majdanek, to Israel from Venezuela. The Butcher performed torturous experiments on Elisheva, determining not only her fate but also that of her closest friends. On the third day of her stay, the day of the concert, she will take her revenge.

Set in the late 1980s, The Third Day is a vivid portrait of life in Jerusalem and a sensitive meditation on the power of music and the sacrifices it demands. And at its heart is a gripping narrative of retribution that brings the novel's many moving strands towards a tense and shattering conclusion.
