Reviews

โ€œA complex mystery set in an unusual, well-developed milieu with a full cast of characters. Literary Murder is literary multidimensional pleasure.โ€--Publishers Weekly
โ€œThis is a marvelous book, seductively engaging from beginning to end ... intellectual pursuit is portrayed with vigor and grace.โ€--Newsday
โ€œGur, a professor of literature in Jerusalem, knows academia well, and she uses it as a foil to illustrate the social and cultural tensions that permeate Israeli life. At the same time, she tells a fine detective yarn, keeping her cards well hidden until the end, deftly setting up the reader for twists, turns, and surprisesโ€--Booklist
