A Scribe Dies in Brooklyn

Rabbi Ben, hero of For Whom the Shofar Blows, is back—and more than ever, he’s not your bubbe’s rebbe. Lured to a clandestine meeting with the President of Israel, Ben is asked to find the long-missing third of the Aleppo Codex, the oldest and most authoritative copy of the Hebrew Bible—more than 1,000 years old and rivaled in historical importance only by the Dead Sea Scrolls.

About Marvin J. Wolf

I began my career in the media as a U.S. Army combat photographer in Vietnam. Assigned to a public information section, I soon saw that writing was an important adjunct to my photo work. In Vietnam I worked for Charles Siler, one of the finest officers ever to serve his country, and had the great good fortune to meet and become friends with some of the world's greatest reporters and photographers, including Nobel laureate author John Steinbeck, Jonathan Fenby, Peter Arnett, Horst Faas, and many others. These men were generous with their time and wisdom and helped put me on the path to becoming a writer.

As I made the transition from magazine writing to longer forms, I was encouraged to specialize but found that I was interested in so many things that I found it impossible to choose only one. Instead I became a frequent collaborator, helping such notables as Native American leader Russell Means and former South Vietnam Prime Minister Nguyen Cao Ky with their autobiographies. I also developed an appreciation for suspense and intrigue that inevitably led me to write about crime. About 2001 I took a segue into film, and had a short but interesting career writing for television. That helped me to create a character that I've put into the Rabbi Ben Mysteries. The first of these books, "For Whom The Shofar Blows," debuted on Amazon.com in November 2011. Thanks for visiting this page, and remember that habitual readers are smarter and have more well-rounded personalities.

About the Series: The Rabbi Ben Mysteries
Meet Rabbi Ben, master of Torah, Talmud and Taekwondo, kick-ass computer whiz and a quick study on the dark side of human nature. A knight errant and roving troubleshooter, Ben’s clientele invite him into situations where police are unwelcome and discretion is paramount. Young, single and handsome—in a short, redheaded way—divorcees and unhappy wives scheme to coax Rabbi Ben into their beds. Ben fends off their not unwanted advances; he harbors many secrets that he'd just as soon not reveal.

Follow Rabbi Ben in his debut, FOR WHOM THE SHOFAR BLOWS, followed by A SCRIBE DIES IN BROOKLYN and A TALE OF TWO RABBIS. Look for the fourth Rabbi Ben Mystery with the forthcoming BRIDE OF FINKELSTEIN!
