A thin Jewish boy of few words, Weiser can hypnotize panthers, shoot a bullet through a Hitler stamp at a hundred meters, and even levitate. After staging a spectacular explosion with a hidden cache of old German munitions, Weiser and the girl, Elka, vanish without a trace, leaving the three other boys, including Pawel Heller - the novels narrator - to explain his disappearance to the authorities. But the boys wont talk. What happened to David Weiser? And who was he - a demon, a prophet, or just a boy? Hellers quest for the answers to these questions makes for a beguiling and haunting tale.
