Rabbi Aviva Cohen is a 50-something, twice-divorced rabbi living a fairly uneventful life in South Jersey. True, she has a family that is rather unconventional. And her first ex-husband is moving to her town. But her life takes a truly interesting -and sinister - turn when she agrees to officiate at the funeral of an unpopular land developer.
She doesn't expect to be told by two different people that he had been murdered. Nor does she expect that the first funeral will result in a suicide. Her search for the story behind the suicide (or was it murder?) will lead her to discover the truism "appearances can be deceiving" is accurate, while putting her life in jeopardy.
"Wonderful well-written characters will pull you in. I hope this book has mass appeal beyond the Jewish population because it is a great mystery."
