Summary: From Elie Wiesel, a gripping novel of guilt, innocence, and the perilousness of judging both.

A plane en route from New York to Tel Aviv is forced down by bad weather. A nearby house provides refuge for five of its passengers: Claudia, who has left her husband and found new love; Razziel, a religious teacher who was once a political prisoner; Yoav, a terminally ill Israeli commando; George, an archivist who is hiding a Holocaust secret that could bring down
a certain politician; and Bruce, a would-be priest turned philanderer. Their host -- an enigmatic and disquieting man who calls himself simply the Judge -- begins to interrogate them, forcing them to face the truth and meaning of their lives. Soon he announces that one of them -- the least worthy -- will die. The Judges is a powerful novel that reflects the philosophical, religious, and moral questions that are at the heart of Elie Wiesel's work.
