As Israel braves Saddam Hussein's Scud missiles, a Torah from Iraq disappears in China. Can the "Jewish Miss Marple" find the historic religious scroll in time for a momentous diplomatic breakthrough? Lily Kovner, while scoffing at her nickname, the "Jewish Miss Marple," undertakes the improbable quest of finding a Torah gone missing in Shanghai. Political intrigue and long-buried resentments of an ancient community figure into a journey plagued by threats, physical attack and murder. And the ultimate unraveling of the theft opens a Pandora's box of personal history in a Jewish community that endured a diaspora that stretched over 2500 years in Iraq, India and China.
