Longtime bookseller Andy Weinberger reads and signs copies of his debut novel, An Old Man's Game.
Beginning when a controversial celebrity rabbi drops dead over his matzoh ball soup at the famed Canter's Deli in Los Angeles, An Old Man's Game follows retired private eye Amos Parisman--a sixtyish, no-nonsense Jewish detective who lives with his addled wife in Park La Brea--who is hired by the temple's board to make sure everything is kosher. As he looks into what seems to be a simple, tragic accident, the ante is raised when more people start to die or disappear, and Amos uncovers a world of treachery and hurt that shakes a large L.A. Jewish community to its core.
