BOOK REVIEW: NOW YOU SEE ME
Hadassah Bailor, daughter of Rabbi Chaim Bailor, left home one morning to see a girl friend and didn't return. Molly Blume Abrams is a freelance reporter and pens a weekly "Crime Sheet" column for the local tabloids. Molly was on a tour for her new true crime book when Hadassah's uncle approached her. He begged Molly for help in locating Hadassah. He stressed that it was imperative that she be found but that the police not be contacted. The family feared that if her disappearance became public knowledge Hadassah's reputation would be ruined.
Since Molly was also an Orthodox Jew and married to a Rabbi she understood the reasoning but was not anxious to be involved in the search. Rabbi Bailor had been Molly's teacher and she still carried a grudge over an incident that occurred years ago where she felt Rabbi Bailor did not stand up for her, as he should have.
Molly began her search for Hadassah and soon began to feel that Hadassah was with a man who was very dangerous and could bring great harm to the young girl. Her search for Hadassah turned up information about the dangers of chat rooms and teaches a real lesson concerning the trouble teenagers can get into when not properly supervised on the Internet. The book also touches briefly on other problems that teenagers face in today's world.
Hadassah returns home but the man Molly suspects she has been with is found dead and possibly murdered. The puzzle is very difficult to unravel but with Molly's perseverance and a witness with a good eye for details the truth is finally unveiled.
The author also touches on many of the traditions and beliefs of practicing Orthodox Jews. This is a very interesting, informative story with suspense building throughout the book.
