Neal Goldstein about this book: There are lots mysteries set in New York, Boston and LA, all great towns, but precious few take place in the City of Brotherly Love. Having lived in and around Philly all of my life, I know my home town is a great place in which to kill or be killed. MMIM not only offers the reader a murder/mystery with lots of twists and turns, it also provides a real sense of the unique character of the city, its iconic neighborhoods and the fascinating characters who live here. The story begins with a meeting between a stranger and the local Taliban in a mountain village somewhere in the middle east and moves thousands of miles away to a tiny condominium in Manayunk, where a beautiful young woman is brutally murdered. So grab a soft pretzel with mustard and a bottle of cherry wishniak,(it's better than an egg cream) and follow this fast paced thriller that will take you from the heights of the Main Line to the slums of North Philadelphia.
