9780060852948: Murder in Jerusalem: A Michael Ohayon Mystery (Michael Ohayon Series)

When a woman's body is discovered in the wardrobe warehouses of Israel Television, Chief Superintendent Michael Ohayon embarks on a tangled and bloody trail of detection through the corridors and studios of Israel's official television station, and through the fears, loves, and contradictions of the people who work there. It is an eye-opening journey that brings into question the very ideals upon which Ohayon—and indeed the entire nation—was raised, ideals that may have led to terrible crimes.

About the Author:

Batya Gur (1947-2005) lived in Jerusalem, where she was a literary critic for Haaretz, Israel's most prestigious paper. She earned her master's in Hebrew literature at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and she also taught literature for nearly twenty years.

From Booklist:

The final Michael Ohayon novel from the supremely talented Gur, who died of cancer in May 2005, marks a premature but stirring conclusion to an outstanding crime series. As in the previous installments, murder again takes Israeli police superintendent Ohayon inside a closed society, where he must ferret out motive and killer from within a tightly knit group of people entangled by work, love, and jealousy. Past adventures have penetrated the worlds of kibbutzniks, scholars, psychologists, and musicians; here, it's life within the Israeli national television network that is rent asunder when a set designer is killed by a falling pillar. The apparent accident turns out to be something far different, and soon enough Ohayon must deal with multiple murders. Like P. D. James, Gur uses the closed-society frame to set up a world where conflict is decades old and--until violence finally erupts--kept far beneath the surface. Ohayon, a deeply introspective and profoundly melancholic man, sorts through the psychological undercurrents that drive his cases with great sensitivity, much in the manner of James' detective, Adam Dalgleish. And yet, finally, Ohayon is the more compelling character, perhaps because his own vulnerabilities are more apparent and especially because he must conduct his investigations and live his life in the cauldron of passion and emotion that is contemporary Israel. This series will be sorely missed by crime-fiction readers everywhere. Bill Ott
