Combining the classic charms of Agatha Christie with the delightful humor of M. C. Beaton’s Agatha Raisin novels, Mark Reutlinger’s Mrs. Kaplan mystery series returns as a notorious crank meets an untimely fate.

Yom Kippur is a day of reflection and soul searching. But at the Julius and Rebecca Cohen Home for Jewish Seniors, Vera Gold misses this opportunity to atone for her many sins when she up and dies. Indeed, Vera was such a pain in the tuchis to all those around her that when her sister claims Vera was deliberately poisoned, the tough question isn’t who would want to kill her—but who wouldn’t?

Having already solved one murder with her dear friend Ida, Rose Kaplan has a sleuthing reputation that precedes her. It’s only natural that Vera’s sister turns to Mrs. K for help. So do the police, but when her conclusions conflict with theirs, they tell her to butt out! This case has more twists than a loaf of challah. And with a homicidal scoundrel on the loose, Mrs. K has to act fast—or she might be the guest of honor at the Home’s next memorial service.

Praise for Mrs. Kaplan and the Matzoh Ball of Death

“Is there kosher food in jail? These two heroines have gotten themselves in quite a pickle! Well, it’s a matzoh ball mess, really. Too deliciously funny!”—Rita Mae Brown, bestselling author of Nine Lives to Die

REVIEW: A PAIN IN THE TUCHIS by Mark Reutlinger
[Mrs. Kaplan Mystery #2]

Sharp as a knife senior Rose Kaplan and her friend and sidekick Ida reside in a home for Jewish senior citizens, not a likely site for crime, tribulations, or murder. But where Rose Kaplan goes, mysteries abound. With Ida steadily playing Watson to Mrs. K's Holmes, and amanuensis, Mrs. Kaplan sets out to smooth troubled waters and investigate the possibly mysterious demise of troublemaker Vera Gold.

A relaxing cozy mystery as comfortable as a warm knitted shawl on a cold winter night, A PAIN IN THE TUCHIS is the second in Mark Reutlinger' s Mrs. Kaplan Mystery series.

    1. I'm glad you like the title(s). I was concerned that people might not know what "tuchis" meant, but that hasn't turned out to be a problem. It's surprising how many people, of all backgrounds, have picked up Yiddish expressions.
