For Whom the Shofar Blows
A Scribe Dies In Brooklyn
Rabbi Ben Mystery # 2
Missing for more than half a century, a fragment of the world’s oldest Hebrew Bible codex, a unique and priceless religious artifact, surfaces after the death of a reclusive Brooklyn businessman—and is immediately stolen. Hired to find the long-lost pages, Rabbi Ben battles a mysterious gang of thieves who will stop at nothing to get the codex.
Immersed in the superstitious and almost medieval society of Syrian Jewish immigrants, Ben unmasks a serial swindler, restores a clan's honor, returns a stolen identity and solves a decades-old series of unsuspected murders. Along the way, he meets the woman of his dreams and then must walk through fire to save her.

A Tale of Two Rabbis
Rabbi Ben Mystery #3
Arriving in Pittsburgh to participate in a year-long medical trial, Ben soon meets a married couple—a nurse practitioner and her wife, a cop. They ask him to help find their missing rabbi, who seems to have overstayed a brief vacation. Prodded by Miryam, his fiancée, Ben reluctantly agrees to help but soon begins to suspect that the man he seeks is neither missing nor a rabbi. Delving deeper, dead bodies begin to pile up as Ben encounters a series of thugs attempting to stop or kill him. His investigation turns into a fiendish hall of funhouse mirrors, where little is what it seems and there is no way out.
