Passover Mysteries: Crime Fiction

With the Jewish holiday of Passover just around the corner (starts sundown April 18 this year), I thought I'd update my Passover Crime Fiction list. Since it's such a short list, I suggest you check out HERE, HERE, and HERE for this year's Chocolate Passover Recipes.

Funny that The Passover Plot is listed as fiction. The author didn't intend it that way; he meant it to be historical. However, given its take on Jesus, most Christians would indeed consider it fiction.

With any luck - and a willing agent and/or publisher - UNLEAVENED DEAD will be on the list next year!
