Staff Recommendation: The Yiddish Policemen's Union

This is another great novel by one of my favorite writers. This book takes on a murder mystery format, set in the forgotten Jewish community in Sitka, Alaska that is about to be re-integrated into the U.S. system, disrupting everything in the lives of the residents. As a seemingly insignificant murder is investigated, however, disturbing connections are uncovered that affect all of Sitka.
