When a rabbi needs help tracking down a thief, it’s time to call on “one of the most enjoyable private eyes in crime fiction” (The Toronto Star).
Saul Tepperman of Ontario’s B’nai Shalom synagogue has known Benny Cooperman since his bar mitzvah. Now that Benny’s grown into a crack private detective, he’s called to investigate by Tepperman and the rabbi—after a once-trusted lawyer runs off with the savings of more than fifty clients, totaling around two million dollars . . .
Filled with “wit and sardonic humor,” this lively novel is part of the acclaimed long-running series by the Arthur Ellis Award–winning author (The Toronto Star).
