This is Gold's second novel in his mystery series featuring Lou Tedesco, an investigative reporter in Portland, OR. Gold's works are based on true incidents. Lou is in a meeting with his partners asking for a reprieve from the investigative part of his duties when Roberta Geller walks into his office and asks for a meeting. Roberta is the daughter of Rabbi Robert Geller, who was tried for the murder of his wife but got a mistrial. Lou's reputation for impartiality and truth had preceded him, and Roberta had begged him to take the case of her mother's murder so that she could know, once and for all, who was responsible. From official release/information:
Book Description: Journalist and movie and food critic Lou Tedesco has just earned another title: sleuth. When the wife of a philandering rabbi dies, he's tried for murder. But a mistrial sets the stage for Lou to investigate where the police feared to tread.
