    The resurrected spirit of Philip Marlowe returns in the form of the wisecracking, hard-drinking homicide detective Meyer Landsman in Michael Chabon's epic crime noir, 'Yiddish Policemen's Union.' But where Chandler steeped his hero in the hardboiled cynicism of post-WWI L.A., Chabon transports readers to an alternative post-WWII America where the new Israeli state is established in the Alaskan panhandle. Over the course of 60 years the Jews of the Federal District Sitka would develop into a complex frontier city. When Landsman begins investigating the death of a young chess prodigy, a chain of corruption leading to a powerful Rabbi may reveal temple & government collusion.
