Lieberman's Law by Stuart Kaminsky
When his temple is defaced, Lieberman battles Chicago’s most hateful citizens
Over a decades-long career in Chicago homicide, Abe Lieberman has something most cops only dream of: a personal life. He has hobbies, a wife, and a grandchild who is about to celebrate his bar mitzvah. But Lieberman’s personal and professional lives collide when his temple is attacked by vandals, and he uncovers a river of hate that runs right through the heart of Chicago’s North Side.
Too moderate for the hard-liners, too outspoken to win friends among the Arabs, the Conservative Temple Mir Shavot is caught in the middle of the Israeli-Palestinian debate. When a hate group breaks into the temple, scrawling graffiti and stealing a valuable Torah, Lieberman must decide if the guilty party was neo-Nazis, militant Palestinians—even, perhaps, a group of uncompromising Orthodox Jews. Death waits at the intersection of politics and religion, and Abe Lieberman must face it head on.
“Like Ed McBain, Stuart Kaminsky is so prolific that it’s possible to lose sight of just how good he is. Readers who pick up this one, the fifth in the Abe Lieberman series, won’t make that mistake again.” —Booklist
“Kaminsky lets even his wildest-eyed characters have their say on the tough issues.” —Kirkus Reviews
“A taut suspenseful tale, animated by a sometimes dark but decidedly moral vision.” —Publishers Weekly
