I don't usually care to read mysteries, and these were ok. Some were included as Jewish-themed mysteries only because many of the characters had Jewish names. I enjoyed the ones better where Judaism was an integral part of the story. I found it interesting that many of the characters had to say that they had left Judaism, and I wonder why so many authors felt it necessary to include that fact. I also was very interested in the mystery that occurred in North Minneapolis,since that is where my father was from, and I was very familiar with the locations mentioned. Most of these were not the kind of mysteries where clues are presented, so the reader can possibly solve the crime. ( )
