"In The Case of the Missing Books: A Mobile Library Mystery (the first in a series), Northern Irish writer Ian Sansom introduces us to a wonderful lead character in Israel Armstrong. He’s pudgy, frumpy, a little boorish, and bookish. Well, of course, he’s bookish, he’s a librarian … from North London, sent to work in a small Northern Ireland town. Israel also is a Jew in a country polarized by Christian faiths."
