Anne Haw Holt

Author Anne Haw Holtabout this book: This is the story of Josiah, beloved son of Mattathah the female scribe, and notorious thief of Jerusalem. Josiah thrives on adventure and adrenaline, and has no desire to live a normal, boring life. One day, he meets someone who makes him rethink everything he believes.

My father, Richard Wallace Haw, wrote the basic story of this book a long time ago. His story was obviously a work of love. Written after he had visited Israel, the manuscript sat in a box for years. It's typewriter text faded and the paper curled with age. I loved my father. He was a great man. I went about publishing my novels and working fulltime. Long after his death, I decided to rewrite his story. The language and syntax were so formal, but the story was beautiful. I added my own touches, changing enough to make it flowing and readable. I am very proud of The Malefactors, and I believe that my father is too.

Set in Biblical Palestine during the time of Christ. The Malefactors weaves the story of the two thieves, Josias and Lucius, that were crucified with Jesus. The life of Josias, from his birth to the end brings you into the lives of incredible characters and drama. A finely woven story of crime, adventure, treachery, love and family gives a different perspective of the time when Jesus walked the earth. Historically and biblically accurate, this is a remarkable work of historical fiction.
