Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In Krich's third entertaining thriller starring spunky L.A. true-crime writer Molly Blume (after 2003's Dream House), Molly at last gets on the trail of the killer who murdered her best friend, Aggie Lasher, six years earlier. Molly is blissfully preparing for her upcoming marriage to Zack, an ultra-cool rabbi (who doesn't mind if Molly wears jeans under her skirt), when Andy Connors, her friend at the LAPD, asks her to identify a locket found on the body of aspiring actor Roland Greeley, an apparent drug overdose victim. Molly identifies the locket as the one she bought 10 years before at Rachel's Tomb in Israel and gave to Aggie. The locket contains a sacred red thread "whose mystical power wards off the evil eye lurking behind envy and arrests its malignant reach." Was Greeley guilty of Aggie's murder? The more Molly digs into his past, the more she doubts the recovering addict killed Aggie, a dedicated social worker at Rachel's Tent, a haven for at-risk and abused women. Krich never misses a beat as her heroine unravels the dark tangle of the senseless crime, affirming Rachel's legacy and the blessing behind the red thread: the healing power of truth. Krich once again expertly mixes Orthodox Jewish faith with crisp whodunit plotting.

From Booklist

Crime reporter Molly Blume is busy planning her wedding to Rabbi Zack when Detective Andy Connors appears with a locket that belonged to her best friend, Aggie Lasher. Someone fatally stabbed Aggie six years earlier, and the crime remains unsolved. The locket turned up with the body of Randy Creely, an aspiring actor and drug addict who overdosed. The police assume that Creely was the murderer. Molly, who has been obsessed with her friend's death, is not sure that the actor committed the crime and begins investigating. Her family and her fiance would prefer that she concentrate on the wedding, but she has other ideas. Her curiosity exposes corruption in prominent families and puts her in danger. As always, Krich mixes a good mystery with L.A. lore and a glimpse at Orthodox Jewish traditions. Her fans will enjoy Molly's latest case even as they await a new adventure in Krich's other series, starring West L.A. detective Jessica Drake. Barbara Bibel

This is the first Krich novel I've ever read, and it was as billed "a novel of suspense". I found myself learning information I had before. I found myself intrigued by the "why" behind the story line. Just an interesting book to read.

The characters were good, quite believable, and we find there are hidden facts behind characters. Dead or alive.

The good is just well written and I will hopefully be back for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Our modern day Raymond Chandler Nov. 9 2004
By La Canada Mom - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I agree with all the glowing things the other reviewers have written about Grave Endings. Krich hooked me in the first chapter and had me staying up way past my bedtime to finish this book. Her details about Los Angeles and Orthodox Jewish tradition are fascinating to read. This is a very well written, moving book. I loved it! Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Oct. 20 2006
By K. Sozaeva - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was the first book by Rochelle Krich I have read - I picked it up in the library on an impulse. Not only was it a good mystery, but it also provided a fascinating look into the world of Orthodox Judaism.

Molly Blume is a few weeks away from marrying "her rabbi" when she learns that a man recently found dead in his apartment (Randy Creeley) from an apparent drug overdose had in his possession a locket that she had given to her best friend Aggie - who was murdered 6 years before. The police believe that Randy was responsible for her murder. Molly sets out to find the truth, while juggling preparations for her wedding and jobs both writing crime columns for local newspapers as well as true crime novels under a pseudonym. She soon uncovers disturbing inconsistencies. Was Randy murdered? Did Randy kill Aggie, or was someone else responsible? As she investigates further, someone starts to stalk her . . . There are a lot of twists and turns to get to the final denoument.

This novel wasn't an edge-of-your-seat thriller, although it had its moments, but it was certainly a very enjoyable mystery. I also very much enjoyed all the tidbits thrown in about Molly Blume and her family's life and lifestyle as Orthodox Jews. Molly's struggles to compromise her independent nature to her desire to live by her religion's ideals - as well as to make accomodations as the future wife of a rabbi - made for fascinating character development. This is not the first in the series, as became fairly obvious early in the book, and I am definitely going to seek out the rest of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intricately plotted novel that transcends the mystery genre Oct. 15 2004
By Bookreporter - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I don't think that I can state it any more succinctly: don't miss Rochelle Krich, particularly her Molly Blume series. GRAVE ENDINGS, Krich's latest novel, is the third of the Blume books, and one that begins with the unresolved question of who murdered Aggie Lasher, Blume's best friend. Lasher's stabbing death has been unsolved for six years, and at the beginning of GRAVE ENDINGS it appears that the LAPD, Lasher's family, and Blume may finally have the answer to the question of who so abruptly ended Lasher's life. But naturally things are not quite so simple.

GRAVE ENDINGS commences with Blume being notified of the apparent death by drug overdose of Randy Creeley. Death by O.D. is not unusual in Los Angeles, and Creeley apparently had been dealing with his addiction for years with only mixed success. What is noteworthy about Creeley's demise, however, is that at the time of his death he had in his possession a locket that was a present from Blume to Lasher, a special memento that Blume had obtained at Rachel's Tomb in Israel. It appears that the unsolved homicide is now a closed case. Ordinarily this would be considered welcome news, given that it comes on the eve of Blume's marriage to Zack, an orthodox Rabbi and her one-time high school sweetheart. Blume, however, is troubled by a number of aspects to the matter, not the least of which is how Creeley came to murder Lasher and why he kept the locket.

As Blume begins to investigate Creeley's life, she is shocked to discover that Creeley had worked with Lasher at Rachel's Tent, a shelter for women in abusive relationships, and that Creeley and Lasher might have been romantically involved. The latter is particularly upsetting to Blume, given that she and Lasher were best friends who shared everything. But Lasher had never mentioned Creeley to Blume. As Blume begins to investigate Creeley's past more closely, she begins to encounter resistance on all sides and finds that her inquiries are placing her in danger, even though Creeley, who supposedly murdered Lasher, is dead.

Krich once again demonstrates that she is a master at presenting an intricately plotted mystery against the background of the Los Angeles orthodox Jewish community and culture. No matter what the degree of your familiarity may be with Jewish customs and practices, you cannot walk away from this book without learning something new. Krich's presentation adds to, rather than detracts from, her narrative. Her knowledge of Los Angeles, and her ability to utilize it as a plot element, is reminiscent of Michael Connelly's novels. GRAVE ENDINGS should ultimately find an audience beyond the boundaries of those who troll the mystery aisles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mazel tov, Molly! You're a Mitzvah! Oct. 3 2004
By Eleanor V. Miller - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Tough and tenacious Molly Blume's nose for nuances of attitude and behavior is largely responsible for her success as a free-lance journalist cum true-crime author. Sticking that nose where it doesn't belong has led her into danger as well as successful sleuthing in the past, usually because something about those previous cases had piqued her curiosity and made her unwilling to settle intellectually for what seemed obvious to everyone else. "Grave Endings" involves a totally different situation. Young wanna-be actor Randy Creeley's death from a drug overdose in his shabby apartment meant just one thing to Molly's friend LAPD Detective Andy Connors: a locket once worn by a dead woman has been found in his possession. Ergo! He could now write 'case closed' to the unsolved, six-year-old stabbing death of Abby Lasher...Abby who was Molly Blume's best friend and the recipient of Molly's gift of the locket with its protective red thread enclosure. It seems like a simple and obvious matter of identification and conclusion to Andy, but Molly has spent those years haunted by what-ifs? and regrets, mourning the death of her friend and agonizing over her own guilt in not being there for her when she might have helped to prevent it. Not just her mind, but her emotions reject this quick closure to her friend's brutal ending, and now that she finally has a starting point for an investigation of her own, nothing...not police indifference, her family's concern, nor her pending wedding to her beloved Zack...will prevent her from pursuing it. Driven by her insatiable need to know more, Molly sorts through the human wreckage that dissolute, charismatic Randy has left behind. The deeper she digs, the more she becomes convinced that his death is not an isolated accident, but a conscious and deliberate ending to a pattern of cover-up and complicity in old abuses and deaths that began many years before. Once the pieces start falling into place, Molly unearths one damning piece of evidence which enables her to act swiftly and daringly to save an innocent woman's life and ensure that justice will be served so the LAPD can at last enter "case solved" into both Abby and Randy's files.

I think that the Molly Blume novels are some of the freshest and most exciting additions to the Female Sleuth component of the suspense genre that I've encountered in the past several years. Basically, if Rochelle Krich writes it, I want to read it, but her Molly books please me most. Why? Because I love the character! Molly's warm, she's caring...she's smart and savvy...yet she's so intensely and believably her own person. Moreover, I'm always delighted by their fast-pacing, intricate plotting and intriguing premises (the fascinating tie-in here to those Kabalistic-inspired red threads, ie.) However, lagniappe for me is not just Molly herself, but Molly's world. Perhaps more than is true of either of Ms. Krich's two previous books in this outstanding series, "Grave Endings" gives me entre and welcome to the world of Orthodox Judaism, and I genuinely value and appreciate the privilege of sharing it with Molly, Zack and their families.

5.0 out of 5 stars fine amateur sleuth Sept. 29 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Molly Blume writes true crime books and works as a free lance journalist. Six years ago someone murdered her best friend Aggie; Molly mourned her loss, but hounded police even when they filed the homicide as a cold case. Sixteen days before her wedding to Zach, Detective Andy Connors asks her to identify a locket that he thinks belonged to Aggie. Molly confirms that it was Aggie's locket because of the red thread inside and a personalized inscription in Hebrew outside.

The jewelry was found in the apartment of Randy Creely, whom police believe died from an overdose and probably killed Aggie. Molly has doubts as she ponders why he kept the locket, sent letters asking people he abused to forgive him, and regularly attended Narcotics Anonymous. Randy's sister is contacted by a person who insists her brother was to send him a package that never came. He trashes her apartment and warns her that if she tells anyone, he will insure that is the last thing she ever does. Molly becomes convinced that Randy never killed anyone and was murdered. If she tracks down the thug who harassed Randy's sister she feels she can learn the truth.

The added fun of this fine amateur sleuth tale is Molly conducting an investigation while also preparing for her Orthodox Jewish wedding ceremony. The mystery is a puzzler because Randy was not a nice person (understated) and is easy to see him as a killer just like the police do; Molly digs beyond the obvious seeking the truth. Between the insight into her religious beliefs and her inquiries, readers will send accolades to author Rochelle Krich for a fine tale.
