|Series protagonist Anita Servi helps with her husband Benno's wood-finishing business in lower Manhattan. The recent 9/11 tragedy and the loss of her best friend leave her emotionally depleted, but when she discovers a young murder victim in the vacuum press upstairs, Anita cannot rest until she finds out who he is and what happened. Her quest takes her through various ethnic neighborhoods, where she unearths a connection between Hasidic Jews and the Jehovah's witnesses. Deft prose, sure descriptions of city life, a mixed Jewish-Catholic outlook, and a sobering plot result make this essential reading. -- Library Journal|
