Publisher's Summary

Abe Lieberman, the Chicago PD detective, has never has it easy when it comes to emotional cases, but this time the action is getting little too close to home. His temple has been vandalized along with four others, and it looks like the vandals have more sinister plans in mind. Finding the culprit opens a window on the broiling ethnic tensions on Chicago's North Side, and what's happening in Abe's family life does nothing to turn down the heat. If he and his partner, Hanrahan, can locate the vandals who have targeted the city's Jews, they may be able to put a stop to some of the madness before violence enters the picture.

    Story
    "Mr. Kaminsky was a national treasure."
    Where does Lieberman's Law rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's up in the top 10% or so. Mr. Kaminsky was incredibly prolific, writing one novel a year for fifty years, and these included about four series, I believe. The Lieberman-Hanrahan books are my favorites, although the Porfiry Rostnikov books are right up there, and the Lew Fonesca books are fun as well. The only series that I didn't love was the one about the Hollywood detective, whose name I can't remember.


    What did you like best about this story?

    As the blurb says, the plot, involving the attacks on synagogues in Chicago, and simultaneously about the changes in Abe and Bess's family: this is done very nicely. The synagogues are attacked by either militant Arab/Palestinian groups, or a bunch of NeoNazi skinheads, who are very colorful characters.


    What does Richard Ferrone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love his voice. It has the gravelly texture that I really enjoy. It's not breathy or melodramatic, but Mr. Ferrone is extremely skilled at voicing the large cast of characters that Kaminsky invents. He is very good at accents, alternating among Yiddish and Irish and Chinese with ease and fluidity.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No. I just loved it. Although there is some violence in these series, Mr. Kaminsky is not in love with it, and doesn't wallow in it as some authors do (like Karin Slaughter, just to name one). The acts are simply events that drive the plot; Kaminsky doesn't adore the gore and linger longingly on the blood and guts. (Pretty purple prose, there.)


    Any additional comments?

    I could go on here, but it would be overkill. Mr. Kaminsky was so clever and wrote with so much enjoyment of his craft that readers who haven't discovered him yet are in for a treat.

    Story
    "Lieberman's Thief AWFUL: Lieberman's Law a delight"


    Mercifully David Colacci does NOT read 'Lieberman's Law'. This is the 6th of Kaminsky's Abe Lieberman books I've listened to. But I returned the 5th, 'Lieberman's Thief' since the very talented Richard Ferrone was replaced by Colacci for that one book in the series. Gifted as Colacci is in other books, he just did not get the sensitive interaction between Abe Lieberman both with his family and his co-star Irish Catholic Bill Hanrahan.

    Richard Ferrone not only gets the dynamics, he created them from book one in this series, 'Lieberman's Folly'. Frankly, if I were you (and I once was) just starting out on this series I'd start with 'Folly' and listen on through the bomb-wieilding thuggery of 'Lieberman's Law' - that's advice you'll thank me for.

    Story
    "ONE OF KAMINSHY’S BEST ABE LIEBERMAN BOOKS"

    The combination of crime novel with a story of danger now directly threatening Lieberman's family, the portrait of his life in a Chicago Jewish community and his partner's struggle with an ethnic conflict of his own are woven seamlessly here.
    For some reason, this Audible book is now showing as unavailable, after I purchased and enjoyed it. Hope that changes if you are either a Kaminsky or a Lieberman fan, then grab this one. You won’t be sorry!

    Story
    "Enjoying the series and hoping for more soon"
    Would you listen to Lieberman's Law again? Why?

    Yes, while I don't re-listen to mysteries often, these books have wonderful details about life and traditions of Lieberman's community.


    What other book might you compare Lieberman's Law to and why?

    I have recently discovered some English mystery series that bring modern procedural realism to "the cozy." This series brings "coziness" to the procedural.


    What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

    Great storytelling. Subtle but distinctive character voices. I find that with great narrators, like Richard Ferrone, it is hard to say why they are good--they just are. I forget that I am listening to a narrator--I am just experiencing the book.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    More thought-provoking that directly heart wrenching, but no criticism in that. I felt compelled and interested in what would happen.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm just hoping Richard Ferrone will record the rest of the series, the sooner the better. I am interested enough to switch to paper, but I really enjoy what Richard brings to the stories and characters.

    "Too political for me"

    I usually enjoy this series but I found this one too serious. I look forward to the bantering between the two main characters but not in this one.
