7:00pm [7:00pm] CAA Book Club- The Ritual Bath
Description:
Our next Book Club book will be The Ritual Bath, the first novel in Faye Kellermanís popular Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus mystery series. Interweaving police procedure with Jewish ritual, Kellerman doesnít assume any prior knowledge of either. She manages to explain whatís necessary to understand the books without talking down to her readers and while developing an intriguing plot and engaging characters. The result is a series of absorbing mystery novels that also are full of information about Jewish tradition and halakha, as well as forensics. In this first novel, Detective Peter Decker is called to investigate a brutal crime in an insular ultra-Orthodox Jewish community. He meets the beautiful and intelligent Rina Lazarus, the only person in the community who will talk to him about the crime committed at the mikveh. Together they work to solve the mystery and start to grow close in the process. Is there any chance that the non-religious detective, raised as a Christian, and the deeply devout Orthodox Jew can have a future together? The many books that follow would suggest the answer is yes. The characters are memorable and the mystery believable. The Book Club will meet on December 18 at 7:00 p.m. The CAA library has multiple copies of the book. Pick one up next time you are at shul.
