"I have been a fan of Steve's accounting series since its inception. I have followed Ben and Sharon's adventures from Philadelphia to Malta, Belgium, Finland, New Orleans, and the Outer Banks. This time they are back in Philadelphia and involved with the ultra-Orthodox Jewish community. As always with Steve's books, Ben and Sharon engage in lively banter, but they also get serious when it's time to save the day. And though I'm not an accountant, Steve always provides some understandable accounting insights that add to the depth of his work. Steve's novels make accounting seem fun as long as some murder and intrigue are included."

The ultra-Orthodox Jewish community in Philadelphia is very close-knit. However, if a female member of the community desires a divorce, her husband must sign a divorce decree (a get). Josef Goldstein wanted his daughter to get a divorce, but his son-in-law wouldn't sign the get. Josef paid the Russian mob to obtain the get, but the mob inadvertently killed the son-in-law. Sharon was assigned to the murder case while Ben examined the financial records of a Jewish grocery store in Northeast Philadelphia. Ben and Sharon soon found that while their work this time seemed distant at first glance, they soon discovered much in common between their cases.
