From award-winning playwright and screenwriter Mark Troy, this collection of five short plays, all theatrical in size and presentation, and all center around Jewish family life, customs, holidays, traditions, and even some "tsuris." These pieces represent a small part of Troy's work for the theater, but demonstrate a clear personal view of the human condition in the Jewish family from different age groups; parents, children, siblings, and married couples.

Everyone assumes she died of natural causes – except for Willow King. Despite Chief Inspector Tom Worth’s mockery of her suspicions Willow is determined to uncover the sinister truth. She finds herself investigating a particularly nasty murder case, in which there seems no limit to the amount of emotional damage people can inflict upon each other. Then Willow herself becomes a target for the same murderous hatred that surrounded Gloria . . . ‘This sparkling whodunnit effectively blends mystery, sophistication, and a dash of romantic melodrama’ Publishers Weekly (Bloody Roses) ‘Well plotted – and immense fun to read’ The Times (Poison Flowers)
