Abe Lieberman, the Chicago PD detective, has never has it easy when it comes to emotional cases, but this time the action is getting little too close to home. His temple has been vandalized along with four others, and it looks like the vandals have more sinister plans in mind. Finding the culprit opens a window on the broiling ethnic tensions on Chicago's North Side, and what's happening in Abe's family life does nothing to turn down the heat. If he and his partner, Hanrahan, can locate the vandals who have targeted the city's Jews, they may be able to put a stop to some of the madness before violence enters the picture.

I don't try write a review as if it were the only review a potential reader will see. I write things that I noticed.
Yes, while I don't re-listen to mysteries often, these books have wonderful details about life and traditions of Lieberman's community.
I have recently discovered some English mystery series that bring modern procedural realism to "the cozy." This series brings "coziness" to the procedural.
Great storytelling. Subtle but distinctive character voices. I find that with great narrators, like Richard Ferrone, it is hard to say why they are good--they just are. I forget that I am listening to a narrator--I am just experiencing the book.
More thought-provoking that directly heart wrenching, but no criticism in that. I felt compelled and interested in what would happen.
I'm just hoping Richard Ferrone will record the rest of the series, the sooner the better. I am interested enough to switch to paper, but I really enjoy what Richard brings to the stories and characters.
The combination of crime novel with a story of danger now directly threatening Lieberman's family, the portrait of his life in a Chicago Jewish community and his partner's struggle with an ethnic conflict of his own are woven seamlessly here.
For some reason, this Audible book is now showing as unavailable, after I purchased and enjoyed it. Hope that changes if you are either a Kaminsky or a Lieberman fan, then grab this one. You won’t be sorry!
