"The Lord is My Shepherd" is a mystery thriller about the hunt for a serial killer. After discovering a body, a church secretary and a rabbi work together and help the police track down the killer. In the process, this unlikely pair becomes friends and share about their faiths to each other.
My favorite part was the Seder, since it brought back fond memories of attending one at the church I grew up at. (Members from a local Messiahnic Jewish Temple put on the Seder for our church.) Since I grew up near a large Jewish community, I appreciated how the neighboring church & temple got along so well.
I found the main characters intriguing: Cindy a church secretary at a Presbyterian church and Jeremiah the Rabbi from the synagogue next door. Put the together for a fun and fast read with a serial killer acting out the events of Holy Week.
There are a lot of dead bodies in this story and some of the imaginary is a little disturbing. If you don't mind then this is a winner.
I enjoyed this fast moving mystery and read the two seqels as well (I Shall Not Want and Lie Down in Green Pastures). I'm not a fast reader but read all three books in a couple of weeks as they kept my interest piqued.
What a wonderful book! I don't like to get involved in series but I'll buy the next one. I loved how it mingled the Old Testament traditions with the New. The characters were people you can care about. And there's the feeling that lots more will be revealed about the Rabbi! Treat yourself to a great read!
