Yael Gold is in love with her boss, Rabbi Judah Loeb, but when the rabbi's wife is found murdered, Yael goes from love-addled naif to panicky murder suspect overnight. Set in a desert suburb in the Southwest, this brilliant, tense murder mystery keeps readers constantly guessing "whodunit." Was it Yael's husband, an insecure Klezmer musician with a savant's gift for musical trivia or one of Judah Loeb's many mistresses? Or is the culprit the ethically-challenged senior rabbi whose "open marriage" scandal rocks his desert community-or is it the mysterious former mafia hitman known only as "The Scumbag?" With humour and suspense it follows Yael through the shocking murder as her troubled past-a philandering rabbi father, her Cuban gangster relatives, and scarring childhood abuse-provides scope to her difficult but triumphant journey to becoming a spiritual leader.
