Not as good as the first, but still worth it
I liked The Yom Kippur Murder. The book held my interest because there were two dramas enfolding at the same time. As Chris digs in to the victim's past, she learns about the lives of people impacted by the Holocaust. In the present, another drama is going on with the last remaining tenants in a NYC building. The characters are deep and draw you in. Chris occasionally got on my nerves, and there were a few times things that seemed unlikely occurred, but overall it held my attention. Like some other reviewers I was a bit surprised and not entirely satisfied at the developments in Chris and Jack's relationship at the end if the book, but still plan to continue the series.
