Praise for Mystery Midrash:
"Despite their Jewish themes, these stories have an ecumenical appeal: to Raphael, Mazel Tov!"
- Publishers Weekly Starred Review
"Excellent work. ... These well-chosen stories are sure to please."
- American Library Association's Booklist
" A kosher treat. A Jewish angle on a genre of literature that so often employs Talmudic logic and the Jewish sensibility that wrong is wrong, and must be stopped."
- Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, author of Jewish Literacy, and An Eye for an Eye, a mystery featuring the sleuth Daniel Winter.
A unique treat with a twist for mystery lovers - and anyone fascinated by modern Jewish fiction.
