What is interesting about The Righteous One is that it not only establishes a curious battle between two men for the sake of New York itself, but the elements of the metaphysical that are blended in feel so natural. Gordon has created a story where the idea of vivid dreams and elements of the mystical are something so normal for the main characters that you will feel completely connected to the ideas being presented. Moshe has also already dealt with some elements of the darker sides of Kabbalah and he is preparing himself as best as he can for the final fight against someone who uses his gifts in a way that harms others. As someone who enjoys a crime story the inclusion of gangsters and illegal dealings was also interesting to see spread throughout the book. Even Solomon and his son are not immune from power plays and dangerous liaisons.

The Righteous One: A Cobbler’s Journey into the Dreamworld and Beyond
By Neil Perry Gordon
Less than a year after author Neil Perry Gordon introduced the world to mysticism, adventure, and a family going beyond their limits to survive in the popular historical novel A Cobbler’s Tale, he reintroduces the characters of the captivating Potasznik family with fresh, adventuresome and dreamlike storylines in the new metaphysical sequel, The Righteous One: A Cobbler’s Tale into the Dreamworld and Beyond [September 2, 2019]. In this new release, Moshe Potasznik, a teen in A Cobbler’s Tale, is now past middle age and a cobbler himself who has been called upon to destroy the rasha and notorious New York gangster Solomon Blass.
Switching from real world to dream world, metaphysical aspects of The Righteous One will appeal to readers willing to explore the ability of the mind to live without the constraints of the body. Gordon describes this as, “Telling the tale of one’s inner life and transcending the present in order to go deeper into a universal spiritual truth. It’s allowing the soul to have a voice.” He also revisits elements of the Jewish mystical tradition Kabbalah introduced to readers in A Cobbler’s Tale. Moshe vs. Solomon, good vs. evil, and tzaddik vs. rasha all come together in the dream world exposing a darker side of the Kaballah through a spiritual adventure of past, present, and future.
What does Gordon hope to accomplish with this adventurous and fast-paced series? He shares, “Writing and creating fuels my happiness. I also hope to leave a legacy for future generations that provides a guiding light. Even a simple life can change the world.”
