Carl Zwick is an aging Chicago Cubs baseball player. Sometimes he feels like he's spent his life hitting into double plays, but he's finally gotten onto the right track. Then tragedy strikes him out. Anita Mills is a pretty single black mother just trying to get by. A random act of brutality in one of Chicago's rougher neighborhoods permanently ends her struggle. Richard Allen Smith walks the streets of ChiTown saying God has sent him. He has an unusual, rather nasty way of getting converts to see the light. What do these people have in common? Nothing, it would seem, except they are all part of Detective Abe Lieberman's very long day. Lieberman, a sad, baggy-eyed spaniel of a man with the patience of Job and the wisdom of Solomon is trying his best to make his beloved Chicago a better place. But when Lieberman and his partner, Bill Hanrahan, encounter these three very different situations they find that there are ties that bind and ties that can cut a man's heart out. Abe Lieberman faces a Gordian knot that he must somehow untangle--and if he makes a mistake, someone very near to him could die.… (mehr)

Another excellent Kaminsky novel, this one from the Abe Lieberman series. There are multiple plots, one involving a pseudo-crazy born-again who has created a nifty extortion racket, another featuring Abe's partner, Bill Hanrahan, which has a neat twist at the end, and the third, also with twist I certainly didn't see coming, involving detective Alan DuPree (who is also featured in a Lou Fonesca novel I'm reading.) In that case a prominent African-American is linked to the killing of one of his employees. Nifty resolution to that one.

Abe is the perpetual Monk-like character: five-seven, weighed a possible 140 on a good day, he wore a nearly perpetual look of resignation on his spaniel face." His wife worries constantly about his cholesterol and so everything he likes to eat is forbidden. He partners with an Irishman, Bill Hanrahan with whom he has a loyal and humorous relationship. Abe is the rabbi; Hanrahan the priest, as they refer to each other. Both are raising second families and Abe's daughter Lisa has a prickly relationship with her dad.

A constant, so far at least, is the strong family life of each of the characters, refreshing to say the least. ( )

Terror Town is another very enjoyable Abe Lieberman novel. The Rabbi and the Priest solve several seemingly unrelated murder cases including the the apparent murder of Carl Zwick, an aging Chicago Cubs baseball player, and the murder of Anita Mills, a pretty black single mother. Richard Allen Smith, a homeless man, walks the streets doing God's brutal work and Hanrahan's wife, Iris is in danger. Of course El Perro and his gang help the Rabbi accomplish what needs to be done.
