If you are interested in “psychologically astute mysteries set in Israel” this is the book and series by Batya Gur for you. The ending was a rather disappointing anticlimax—there’s too much of the deus ex machina to it—but I found Ohayon to be a much more fully realised character than I did in the previous book I read in the series, Saturday Morning Murderand I would recommend the book as a diverting and informative read.
A satisfying mystery with interesting and well developed characters and an intriguing look at a complex kibbutz society filled with psychological motivations that leave you wondering who did it to the end. Four other mysteries by her were published in English, all involving groups in Israel’s society–“Saturday Morning Murder” ’92″Literary Murder: She did this primarily in interactions between Michael the chief investigating officer and Nahari his boss.
Anthony Award Nominee for Best Novel For those of us raised with the mythology of the kibbutz and the founding generation in Israel, those who survived the Holocaust or saw it coming and fled, this book peels back the layers of dispute and discord that survive in the egalitarian society that avowed socialistic principles.

Description Details Customer Reviews Tras el exito obtenido con El asesinato del sabado por la manana y Un asesinato literario, Batya Gur vuelve a presentarnos en Asesinato en el Kibbutz al comisario israeli Michael Ohayon, ahora decidido a resolver un crimen que ha tenido lugar en una sociedad compleja y cerrada: I think it’s hard, without knowing anything about a kibbutz, to know if the relationships between the kibbutz members are realistic but they feel quite realistic to me and they certainly seem more real than Michael’s relationships with his colleagues.
The ending was a rather disappointing anticlimax—there’s too This book is as much about the insular society of an Israeli kibbutz as it is about Inspector Michael Ohayon solving a murder.
However, this book was part of a series and readers who start at the beginning most probably know who all these multiple players are and why they reappear here. I’m reading this to get a feel for kibbutz life.
A Critical Case” ’93″Murder Duet: The themes of who can really ‘belong’ on a kibbutz — or any group –if not born there or into it an addition to the plot that was thought-provoking. Interessante Einblicke ins Kibbuz-Leben!
Not being an Israeli its hard for me to understand the author’s apparent negative attitude concerning early Kibbutz communal life. The old generation of kibbutz founders, which remembers British rule, the Holocaust and the war to establish Israel, is fading from the scene, and communal living, kibbutz style, may itself be eroding.

Mar 09, Joeydag rated it really liked it. This passage did not add to the story nor was it e I liked the story overall, but I felt that Ms. Aug 31, Sally marked it as to-read Recommended to Sally by: They have the same fasination with country as well as people. The writer developed believable characters and the resolution was organic, not forced.
So I think the plotting was plausible just not very innovative from the point of view of the series.
Does this product have an incorrect or missing image? I read as much as I could, for the second time, but could not get involved enough to finish it. Batya Gur’s unnamed kibbutz, somewhere in the southern coastland of Israel, is believably drawn having stayed in one in the very same area, home to a cousin, I can personally kibbytz for that. Murder mysteries wear many faces.

Asesinato En El Kibbutz (English, Spanish, Paperback)
Idealism does exist, as do a shared lifestyle and strong community feeling–but one als Murder mysteries wear many faces. Fascinating – though you do get the impression that the author is not a big fan of the Kibbutz life style If you add this item to your wish list we will let you know when it becomes available.
This is a passing good murder mystery. He seems rather nondescript in this one, I expected his history background to come into use at some point and I want to know how Eli and Tzilla are getting on with their baby but apart from a brief mention of Michael’s son there’s very little continuity of characters from the last book. The recurring character of Michael doesn’t add very much to the books.
