A robber approached the victim from behind and put a knife to her stomach. . . . Stabbings, even fatal ones, are not uncommon in Los Angeles. But the stabbing death of Aggie Lasher–a vibrant young woman dedicated to helping others and, it seemed, deeply loved by everyone who knew her–was especially tragic. For almost six years she has been obsessed by the mystery of her best friend's murder: If she had been with Aggie, would the killer have chosen another victim? Will the killer ever be caught? When Molly’s LAPD pal Detective Andy Connors shows her a locket found on the body of a dead man, suddenly the case seems solved. Molly had given that locket to Aggie. Still coiled inside it is the red-thread good-luck charm that Molly had brought back years ago from Rachel’s Tomb in Bethlehem, a thread with the reputed mystical power to protect its wearer. The presumed murderer–a good-looking aspiring actor named Randy Creeley–was found dead of an overdose in his shabby Hollywood apartment. But Molly has unanswered questions. And though she should be focused on her wedding, only weeks away, she is driven to find out more–about Creeley; about his nervous sister, Trina; about his missing girlfriend, Doreen. About Aggie, who, it turns out, didn’t tell her best friend everything. The more Molly discovers, the more she wonders: Was Aggie’s life snuffed out so an addict could shoot up? Or has Creeley been framed? What if Aggie was deliberately murdered by someone else, someone who is ready to kill again to ensure that his motives stay buried with Aggie and Randy Creeley? Molly’s search for the truth sends her scurrying for answers in an L.A. tourists seldom see. But closure is elusive, and seeking it can exact a stiff price–sometimes even a life. Rochelle Krich’s third Molly Blume mystery is irresistible: an inexorably compelling chiller. From the Hardcover edition.

    Another satisfying Molly Blume story, one that finally resolves the murder of her best friend, Aggie. Krich is a master of pacing, doling out the clues in a slow, constant stream, peppering each chapter with red herrings, and seamlessly weaving details about the Orthodox Jewish community of her protagonist. A wonderful, gripping read.

    A sensitive and deeply personal mystery - you really feel Molly's intense inner drive to see the case solved, even years after the fact. Lovingly written with a lot of interesting insights into Jewish traditions and practice, and a nicely done mystery as well.

    This was the first book by Rochelle Krich I have read - I picked it up in the library on an impulse. Not only was it a good mystery, but it also provided a fascinating look into the world of Orthodox Judaism. Molly Blume is a few weeks away from marrying "her rabbi" when she learns that a man recently found dead in his apartment (Randy Creeley) from an apparent drug overdose had in his possession a locket that she had given to her best friend Aggie - who was murdered 6 years before.

Not only was it a good mystery, but it also provided a fascinating look into the world of Orthodox Judaism. Molly Blume is a few weeks away from marrying "her rabbi" when she learns that a man recently found dead in his apartment (Randy Creeley) from an apparent drug overdose had in his possession a locket that she had given to her best friend Aggie - who was murdered 6 years before. The police believe that Randy was responsible for her murder. Molly sets out to find the truth, while juggling preparations for her wedding and jobs both writing crime columns for local newspapers as well as true crime novels under a pseudonym. She soon uncovers disturbing inconsistencies. Was Randy murdered? Did Randy kill Aggie, or was someone else responsible? As she investigates further, someone starts to stalk her . . . There are a lot of twists and turns to get to the final denoument. This novel wasn't an edge-of-your-seat thriller, although it had its moments, but it was certainly a very enjoyable mystery. I also very much enjoyed all the tidbits thrown in about Molly Blume and her family's life and lifestyle as Orthodox Jews. Molly's struggles to compromise her independent nature to her desire to live by her religion's ideals - as well as to make accomodations as the future wife of a rabbi - made for fascinating character development. This is not the first in the series, as became fairly obvious early in the book, and I am definitely going to seek out the rest of them.

    The best of the 4 book series!, September 9, 2011 This is Krich's third thriller starring L.A. true-crime writer Molly Blume. With the help of LAPD Detective Andy Connors, Molly gets a chance to find the killer of her best friend Aggie that happened six years earlier. Molly digs into the past of an actor who apparently died of an overdose and is found with a locket that belonged to Aggie. The more she digs the more she doubts the actor addict killed Aggie.

With the help of LAPD Detective Andy Connors, Molly gets a chance to find the killer of her best friend Aggie that happened six years earlier. Molly digs into the past of an actor who apparently died of an overdose and is found with a locket that belonged to Aggie. The more she digs the more she doubts the actor addict killed Aggie. Once again Molly puts herself in danger to the regret of Connors who is always protective of her and to her Orthodox Jewish family. Plus, Molly (who left Orthodox Judaism years earlier) is planning her wedding to the hip Rabbi Zack who is strictly Orthodox. Although he does give her a few allowances. Grave Secrets is an edge or your seat fantastic murder mystery without explicit sex or violence. Molly is a strong determined woman who is on a clear path to solve the murder of her best friend and to return to her Orthodox roots. I never had a clue about Orthodox Judaism before this series and I have found it absolutely fascinating. I learn something new with each novel. I highly recommend reading all four books in the series!

    This book was free of all my pet peeves, no violence just for shock value, no dumb moves by main character, no unneccesary plots just to add bulk to the book, or stories for future books, etc, etc, etc. With all that said, Molly is a free lance crime reporter, who complies crime data and sends off to various papers for them to have a police column.

She is still shocked by the violent death of her best friend 6 yrs ago. The cop kept her appraised of the case and when a suspect is found she goes seeking questions. Since he died, she works through his life looking for answers. Along the way she encounters his landlord, previous co-workers and his sister. As she looks for answers, she remains grounded and uses her skills to find the truth. Even the personal story here, her getting married and the Jewish tradition filtered through the book just supports the main character and made for a good read.

    Well done! I had previously read the first two books in the series, and they were kind of fun, but seriously they go too into spiritualism and mysticism from the Kabbalah and Orthodox Judaism. This book also threw too much of that into it, but the story is a complex and involved one that keeps the reader interested in guessing. The overall conclusion of the incidents with the main suspect is somewhat surprising, and the way in which the conclusion is arrived is both surprising and satisfying. I w Well done!

I wonder what the author has in store for the fourth book in the series; maybe it's unrelated, but I suppose it could build on the characters so far.

    An average mystery, but the Jewish elements were well-done and enjoyable, and she managed to make the book interesting without amplifying the sex and gore. I appreciated that. I thought the last few lines were stunningly beautiful and very moving. I would be happy to read more of this author's work.

    It was okay. But I didn't think it was particularly suspenseful. I don't think I'd read any more of her books. It was okay. But I didn't think it was particularly suspenseful. I don't think I'd read any more of her books.
