Death in Jerusalem: A Donald McCarry Mystery

John C. Boland, Author St. Martin's Press $19.95 (214p) ISBN 978-0-312-10965-3
Stockbroker Donald McCarry finds himself in the middle of a fishy financial deal in this wry, intelligent Wall Street mystery. McCarry, seen before in Rich Man's Blood , has a cordial business relationship with Harry Brickman, who is looking for investors to back Agritech, a start-up agricultural company in Israel. McCarry goes to Israel with Brickman to check Agritech out, and, almost immediately, Brickman is kidnapped, apparently by Palestinian terrorists. As he waits for either a ransom note or news of Brickman's death, MaCarry learns from Agritech president Dov Levy and his assistant Esther Sennesh, whose relationship with Brickman may have been more than professional, that Agritech is part of a financial scam. But he doesn't know Brickman's place in the scheme--originator or victim. With deft sleight-of-hand, Boland, a former editor at Barron's , keeps the real solution out of sight and, in the brief, passionate affair of McCarry and Sennesh, creates a microcosm of the broader union he sets up between the two wildly different worlds of Wall Street and Israel, both of which he portrays with convincing authenticity.
