Jo'ela, die mitreißende Protagonistin des Romans, steht unvermittelt am Scheideweg: Die 43jährige ehrgeizige Gynäkologin scheint ein erfolgreiches, erfülltes Leben zu führen, - sie ist glücklich verheiratet, Mutter von drei gut geratenen Kindern und soll demnächst Chefärztin der gynäkologischen Station ihres Krankenhauses werden. Drei unerwartete Ereignisse lassen ihr Leben jedoch aus dem Gleichgewicht geraten. Ein junges Mädchen namens Henia wird von ihrer Mutter zur Untersuchung gebracht. Sie weist physische Anomalien auf, die sie als heiratsunfähig brandmarken und in der Welt des ultraorthodoxen Judentums von Me'a Sche'arim zur Ausgestoßenen werden lassen könnten. Bei einem harmlosen Verkehrsunfall trifft Jo'ela den Dokumentarregisseur Jo'el - eine Begegnung, die sie emotional verunsichert. Zuletzt bringt sich Jo'ela durch eine umstrittene Entscheidung auf der Station in Schwierigkeiten und wird von einem bis dahin geschätzten Kollegen attackiert, der ihr als Frau den beruflichen Erfolg mißgönnt

Newly promoted Superintendent Ohayon must deal with the violent death of a famed critic and professor of literature at Hebrew University who is also one of Israel's most admired poets. Meanwhile, at around the same time although miles away, a bright, impassioned younger member of the same department dies in an apparent scuba-diving accident. Just as Ohayon had to master the intricacies of psychoanalysis as well as use his skills as a detective to solve his previous case, he now finds himself faced with profound intellectual and ethical dilemmmas about the relationship between the artist and his creation, with the complexities surrounding literary criticism and the thorny matter of plagiarism - and with a university department full of suspects. In his efforts to unravel the crime (or crimes), Michael Ohayon finds himself immersed in the cutthroat world of academia and confronted once again with issues of his own thwarted scholarly career. Bringing him into contact with Israel's intellectual elite, Literary Murder is both a sophisticated thriller and a revealing look at Israeli society and culture
Asesinato en el corazón de Jerusalén : un caso pasional by Batya Gur( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El cadáver de una joven con la cara destrozada es encontrado en el desván de una casa situada en la carretera de Belén, en el barrio de Baqah de Jerusalén. El superintendente Michael Ohayon acaba de comprarse una nueva casa en ese barrio y, cuando se dirige a verla, es reclamado en el lugar del crimen. Allí le esperan un amor del pasado y un romance que nunca llegó a terminarse. Como en sus libros anteriores, Batya Gur presenta una investigación criminal compleja y cautivadora, que nos adentra en un mundo cerrado y con leyes propias. En este caso la acción transcurre en un barrio de Jerusalén en donde se condensa la realidad israelí en miniatura, una realidad cuyos resquicios Gur dibuja de forma prodigiosa al huir de ideas preconcebidas. A lo largo de la investigación, Michael Ohayon nos irá descubriendo poco a poco todo lo que se oculta tras la realidad más evidente
