The pick of the litter, Mom Meets Her Maker. Of all four books in this series this is most cleanly plotted, with Mom's interpretation of the clues based more on the clues provided than on her wild speculations. As in the other three books, Dave, the protagonist, is inspector for the public defender in a small Western city. Tension is built on the personality of the alcoholic, obstructive district attorney. Each book follows a similar pattern: there's a murder, the wrong person is charged, the accused can't afford a lawyer so the public defender is appointed, the district attorney and his minions provide obstructions, and Mom, Dave's stereotypical New York Jewish mother, picks up on all the clues, interprets them for Dave, and essentially solves the mystery.

Mom's interpretations can be off-the-wall in the other three books, but in this one, number two in the series, Mom's deductions are much more realistic. Each book has a different "color", i.e., setting: theatre, politics, college. The color in this one is religion, primarily the non-affiliated, single church, charismatic preacher type -- although far right and far left churches come in for some satire as well. Actually, it is religious hypocrisy that receives the author's scorn.

See reviews for the other three books for more information.

OK, so I haven't read the "Mom" books since I discovered them in my hometown library in the 90s, but I remember loving them so much I just had to look them up again (ok and see if they were available for my kindle) I noticed that they only had once star and I thought it deserved better than that, even if I can't remember the whole story. I won't say too much (more on Mom doth Murder Sleep which I do own and is fantastic) but give it a shot, the series is wonderful!

may be a fair mystery but too much christian-bashing. if anyone used the demeaning type of description this author used to describe jewish holidays, etc., he would be label as racist, even in a book of fiction.
