A tour de force of documentation, fantasy and passion. A novel from A thousand and one nights coupled with a contemporary thriller. The Khazars remain a mystery to the world and to historians: In the 7th century, the Khazars who were originally from Central Asia established a vast empire which included Southern Russia, Eastern Ukraine, Western Kazakhstan, the north of Uzebeekistan, Crimea and Caucasus. In 740AD to the surprise of the sovereigns of the time and of the historians of today, the Khazars converted to Judaism. For over three centuries, this empire was considered as important as the Carolinian Empire or Byzantine Empire. Suddenly in the middle of the 12th century it fell apart. A thousand years later the writer Marc Sofer sets off to find out about the secrets of the Khazars, his search turns into a thriller and Marek Halter weaves this into the historical background. The Secret of the Khazars is a major bestseller in France. Since publication in May and it went straight on to the bestseller list and has sold over 80,000 copies so far.
