    1. 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 emplo [...]


    2. My favorite author with multiple series, all of which are terrific stories This one was published 3 years before Kaminsky s death and is the next to last of the Abe Lieberman series Lieberman is a Chicago police detective nicknamed Rabbi and whose partner is Bill Hanrahan, nicknamed Father He is world weary and wise, and his life is remarkably normal, from his dysfunctional relationship with his daughter to his preference for foods that are decidedly not good for him In this novel, he and Hanrah [...]


    3. Kaminsky was awarded the 2006 Grand Master Award by the Mystery Writers of America One of his many creations, Abe Lieberman__a dog eyed policeman with high cholesterol, an interest in Talmud, and a resigned attitude toward life__has endeared himself to critics yet again Kaminsky also paints a masterly portrait of Chicago, from its ethnic neighborhoods to its crime scenes The general consensus is that Terror Town is not the best in the series, but it will leave Lieberman fans anxious for .This is [...]


    4. A solid entry to the Abe Lieberman series Lieberman is working on a string of cases a con man masquerading as a prophet, a murdered woman with a rough past, a psycho attacking people with a baseball bat At times, the welter of sub plots threatens to get a little convoluted, but the author manages to bring almost everything to a satisfying close at the end The only problem I had with the book was that I found the identity of the bat wielding psycho to be a bit unbelievable, based on a little too [...]


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


    6. Terror Town was one of the scariest books I ever read The beginning and the middle was very good Some parts were so scary that I did nt want to know what will happen, but it was tempting The libeberman s myster was insterething It was vey mesterious too I really did not like the ending becuaase it was really weak It didn t end the way i thought it would I wish it had a differnet ending to it Overall, It was an okay story I would recoment The terror town An Aabe Lieberman Mystery to all teens and [...]


    7. I seldom read mysteries detective novels and they are not a favorite genre I also had never read a book written by Kaminsky.So I was reasonably entertained I don t like violence and I don t want to be inside the head of psychopaths or gang members, or professional hit men That being said, much of the dialogue was graceful and wryly humorous I must say that I read several Simenon Maigret novels recently and much prefer the lower body count and the focus on subtle psychological elements.
