Description

Carl Zwick is an aging Chicago Cubs baseball player. Sometimes he feels like he's spent his life hitting into double plays, but he's finally gotten onto the right track. Then tragedy strikes him out. Anita Mills is a pretty single black mother just trying to get by. A random act of brutality in one of Chicago's rougher neighborhoods permanently ends her struggle.Richard Allen Smith walks the streets of ChiTown saying God has sent him. He has an unusual, rather nasty way of getting converts to see the light.What do these people have in common? Nothing, it would seem, except they are all part of Detective Abe Lieberman's very long day. Lieberman, a sad, baggy-eyed spaniel of a man with the patience of Job and the wisdom of Solomon is trying his best to make his beloved Chicago a better place. But when Lieberman and his partner, Bill Hanrahan, encounter these three very different situations they find that there are ties that bind and ties that can cut a man's heart out. Abe Lieberman faces a Gordian knot that he must somehow untangle--and if he makes a mistake, someone very near to him could die.

Review quote

"If Edgar Award winner Kaminsky were any more prolific, he'd have to be listed as part of the GNP....a complex, diverting puzzle for which Kaminsky is famous."
--"Booklist "(starred) on "Not Quite Kosher" "Perhaps it is time to declare award-winning Stuart Kaminsky as the reigning monarch of excellent detective series."--"Midwest"" Book Review"
"Stuart Kaminsky is hard to beat for a thoughtful, well-plotted, well-written mystery."--"The ""Washington"" Post Book World"
"The eighth entry in Kaminsky's Abe Lieberman series should delight fans...rich in conflict and atmosphere."--"Booklist" on "The Last Dark Place"""
"Kaminsky's finest series."--"Kirkus Reviews "on the Abe Lieberman series
""Not Quite Kosher" is tough enough to convince a reader that Chicago has some authentic mean streets and gentle enough to appeal to a wider mystery-loving audience. Every page is a pleasure to read."--"Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine
"
"Jam-packed with the stuff of good crime fiction--character, style, place, recognizable human conflict."--"The Washington Post "on "The Big Silence
"
"Characters so real that they seem familiar old friends or terrifying old enemies are well-defined and believable, and the story line is intelligent and nimble."
