Murder Is No Mitzvah: Short Mysteries about Jewish Occasions

| |

Abigail Browning (editor)

Publisher: St. Martin’s

A collection of mystery short stories, all published initially in Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine, and all dealing with Jewish holidays or other days of celebration. Along with the official holidays, like Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) Rosh Hashonah (the Jewish New Year), and more, as well as the private occasions like Bar Mitzvahs, weddings, and funerals. Being chosen for Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine is a recommendation in itself; in this book, along with the mysteries, the reader can enjoy a glimpse of the culture of Jewish life in America.
