I often had to smile and sometimes laugh out loud, which is always a good sign of a good book.

Rabbi Henry Silberbaum is an unorthodox Rebbe. He loves his community, but he also likes crime novels and if they take place in real life, so much the better.
An elderly lady (Ruth) comes to his office and tells him that she wants to live in Israel with her daughter forever. She will bequeath an endowment fund of over 1 million euros to the Jewish community. Her current husband gets the right to live in the villa, but nothing more. She suspects that he is cheating on her and squandering their money elsewhere.
Shortly after this visit, Silberbaum is contacted as Ruth is dead in her bed. The medical officer has already filled out the death certificate 'death as a result of a heart attack'. But Silberbaum senses a crime after looking around the room and the kitchen. He contacts the police and ends up with grumpy detective Robert Berking. The start of the two is not the best, as Berking wants clear evidence and Silberbaum follows his gut feeling. But Berking is openly interested in Jewish customs and customs. Silverbaum cannot suppress his detective streak and starts investigating on his own. With a few unorthodox tricks, he drives the culprits into a corner. Members of the Jewish community also help him with this.
But Silberbaum has other construction sites. There is his mother, who on the one hand adores him and on the other hand constantly makes him feel that he is neglecting her. Then there's the director of the Jewish nursing home, who is madly in love with him, only there's no reciprocation since Silberbaum has a girlfriend in New York with whom he chats at odd times. And then there's the president of the Jewish community, who threatens to fire Silberbaum if he doesn't stop investigating.

This thriller is funny. It has many Yiddish expressions that you can find in the glossary, but you can understand most of them anyway.

3. Bd. Forts. von "Machloikes". Die Kleefeld-Brüder Moritz und Alfred leben nach unterschiedlichen Lebensläufen
zusammen in Frankfurt. Beide blicken gerne und oft auf die
Vergangenheit zurück, der eine ein erfolgreicher
Psychologe, der andere ein - mäßig - berühmter
Schauspieler; das Leben als Nachfahren von
Holocaust-Überlebenden prägt sie nach wie vor. Dies tritt
besonders stark ins Bewusstsein, als sie eine neue
Haushälterin suchen und ausgerechnet eine Palästinenserin
den Job antritt. Nun müssen sie sich täglich nicht nur mit
den Wunden der Vergangenheit, sondern auch mit den
gegenwärtigen Problemen im Nahen Osten auseinandersetzen.
