Praise for Mystery Midrash: An Anthology of Jewish Mystery & Detective Fiction
“The stories in this book do what Jewish writing has always done: provide compelling narrative with your philosophy and philosophical challenges with your fiction…. There is no argument, Talmudic or otherwise, about the quality of this collection: Mystery Midrash is a mitzvah!”
S. J. (Shira) Rozan, author of Stone Quarry and winner of Shamus & Anthony Awards
“Terrific stories; dialogue that will make you smile, if not laugh out loud; and situations that force the characters to deal with their own Jewish identities.”
Joel Siegel, ABC’s Good Morning America
“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
“Despite their Jewish themes, these stories have an ecumenical appeal: to Raphael, Mazel Tov!”
