A shocking double murder at Israel's top academic institution brings Superintendent Michael Ohayon to the scene to probe the nature of creativity and unravel the mystery.
Reading Gur one is struck, first, by her obvious command of the genre, and, foremost, by her exemplary psychological insight. She knows how various and complicated anyone can be, as well as how the self can be hidden even from its ostensible owner, how the mask we wear displays or distorts reality. A revealing look behind self-delusion and role-playing. Gur provides pleasure of a very high order indeed....In Literary Murder, intellectual pursuit is portrayed with vigor and grace...it's so evidently central to Batya Gur's pleasure that we can't help making it our own. -- Newsday
