A young Jewish orphan goes missing in London during the great Frost Fair of 1814. Is he merely lost? Has he been kidnapped? Or killed?
An ancient coin from the Land of Israel disappears during a dinner party. An honest mistake on the part of someone, or is someone trying to swindle one of the guests?
A sukkah is destroyed in London’s East End. A priceless diamond and pearl bracelet is lost in fashionable Mayfair. A coincidence? Or is there some hidden connection lying deep beneath the surface?
Once again there’s trouble afoot in Regency London’s Jewish community, and in these three mystery stories wealthy-widower-turned-sleuth Mr. Ezra Melamed is confronted with some of the most baffling cases of his career.
Included in this volume are: Too Many Coins, What's in a Flame? and General Well'ngone in Love. Plus, there is a bonus chapter about the history of Regency London's Ashkenazic Jewish community.
