(price-clipped) [good solid copy, light soiling to page edges, minor shelfwear; jacket shows some wear at extremities, ragged tear at top of spine with associated wrinkling/creasing, uneven browning to rear panel, light markings on spine]. The story of a shocking murder-suicide that took place in Detroit in 1966, in front of the congregation Shaarey Zedek, when Rabbi Morris Adler was assassinated by a young man (who was known to be a devoted admirer of the Rabbi) who then took his own life. "A tape recorder that was being used to record the Rabbi's sermon captured the episode in all its appalling detail [and] the tape was reproduced on news broadcasts coast-to-coast." The book, based on hundreds of interviews with those who had known both Rabbi Adler and his killer, Richard Wishnetsky, is "an insightful, dramatic, and remarkable double portrait of murderer and victim."
