Q: You have a lot of death in this incredible novel. Why?

A: Death happens. Most of us live fairly sheltered lives, but as a doctor, I have known a number of people who experienced a great amount of tragedy and death. When you start to work with a multigenerational storyline that drags the Mossad, the CIA and the Italian mafia into the drama, expect to find a few bloodied bodies on the sidewalk in the morning.
