Adquirido: Yiddish policemen's union de Michael Chabon

Yiddish policemen's unionTítulo en español: El sindicato de policía yiddish
Año de publicación: 2007

De la contraportada:
The scene: a junkie with a suspiciously good chess game is dead in a seedy hotel room. Enter homicide detective Meyer Landsman, broken-hearted and rough round the edges, complete with a murdered sister, an ex-wife for a boss, and a liquor and nicotine diet. This long-time member of the Yiddish Policemen's Union is already bent under the weight of a tower of unsolved cases, but is set on solving this one -- despite a serious frost coming down from above, matched flake for flake the by the weather in this chilly Jewish homeland.
Snow in Israel? Not exactly. This Jewish homeland is Sitka, Alasaka, and with their time up on the lease, God's chosen people are facing an uncertain future. And Landsman? Now a badgeless, gunless cop with powerfull enemies-- well, he's skating on very thin ice...
