Boca Raton reporter Becks Ruchinsky is stunned when her son, Gabe, brings an ultra-Orthodox friend home from college and asks her to hide him. Six days later, his body is found floating in a canal. When police deem his death an accident, Becks launches her own inquiry—a journey that takes her from secretive Hasidic enclaves to the seedy underbelly of South Beach’s glitzy club scene—to find his killer. What she discovers jeopardizes her son’s life and challenges her religious conviction.
The Hasidic Rebbe’s Son is an intriguing and compulsively readable mystery that contrasts the beauty of Hasidic tradition with the unbending rules that may lead to desperation and murder.

The author has written a real page turner. We learn a lot about the Jewish Religion and customs, and get up close and personal with some of their leaders.
When Gabe brings a friend home and then leaves him, Becks Ruchinsky, is soon involved in another case. She is a cookbook author, she had accepted Menny as a house guest, and put up with his not lifting a finger to help himself, including picking up his clothes or making a sandwich, we learn why, but it would be hard for Becks to deal with.
Then the unexpected happens, Menny becomes missing, and although the police think it was accidental, Becks suspects foul play is involved.
We are along as Becks conducts her investigation, and some feel she is getting to close to the answers.
Will Becks and her family make it to the end of this book alive? When the facts begin unfolding, you will cringe, I thought I know who the perpetrator was, but kept changing my mind, maybe you will be right, but I surely didn’t expect things as they unfolded!
