It’s Passover. Gamaliel and his physician friend, Loukas, are crime-solving a third time―reluctantly. Pontius Pilate has been accused of murder. He denies the crime. If convicted, he might escape death but would be removed from Judea. Those rejoicing urge the Rabban to mind his own business. But Gamaliel is a just man which is, as Pilate says to him, “your weakness and also your strength.” Knowing that exonerating the Roman could cost him his position, possibly his life, Gamaliel, as would Sherlock Holmes centuries later, examines evidence and sorts through tangled threads, teasing out suspects who include assassins, Roman nobles, Pilate’s wife, rogue legionnaires, slaves, servants, thespians, and a race horse named Pegasus. Unusually, justice triumphs over enmity. Gamaliel is satis˜ ed, High Priest Caiaphas is irate, Loukas accepts an apprentice from Tarsus, and few notice the events of what will later be known as Easter. Ramsay’s plausible narrative answers some questions which have puzzled Biblical scholars for centuries. Why did Pilate hear the case against Jesus? Why invent prisoner be released at Passover? Having done so, why offer the most terrifying criminal in the country, Barabbas, as the substitute for Jesus when two better, less dangerous prisoners were at hand? And we ask, why could Caiaphas not heed Gamaliel’s warnings not to martyr the man?

Ike Schwartz and Ruth Harris had to delay a vacation in Las Vegas because, at the last moment, Ruth was required to go to Scone Island, Maine, to settle an estate. But that task is soon complicated by one and then another suspicious death. First, a long-time resident slips off a cliff. Was he pushed? Then the woman who found the body is discovered on a foot path dead from an apparent heart attack and a head wound that is not easily explained. Ruth finds herself briefly cast as a person of interest in the second death. When things seem to be slipping out of hand, Ike arrives just in time to witness the discovery of a third body, that of Simon Weiss. Weiss had come to the island to purchase properties with an eye to turning it into a high-end resort. His tactics and personality so alienated the residents that it is no surprise that he is killed, his body found under the community pier with a professionally placed bullet hole in his forehead. As his plans were allegedly financed by the New York Mafia, it seems obvious who ordered the hit. This brings the FBI into play, to the distress of the local police. With an array of suspects, motives, and even the island's history to confound the investigation, Ike, with the aid of local Deputy Sheriff Tom Stone and the able, if quirky, assistance of Ruth, unravels these three deaths but not without heavy costs to villains, residents, and their children.
By Lloyd James (narrator) and Frederick Ramsay
