A Debt of Death (Adam Lapid Mysteries Book 4) Kindle Edition
"Jonathan Dunsky's Adam Lapid detective series is full of twists and turns, dark secrets, and thrilling suspense--all set against the backdrop of the end of WWII." - Jewish Book Council
From the Author
Thank you for taking a look at my book, A Debt of Death. Just in case you're still not sure this is the book for you, I wanted to write you this short personal message.
A Debt of Death is the fourth book in the Adam Lapid historical mysteries series. In many respects, I believe it's the best book I've written to date.
It's certainly the most fast-paced, thriller-like book in the series.
I'm an avid reader myself, so I wanted to write a novel that's not only fun to read, but one that also packs an emotional punch. I believe I pulled it off with A Debt of Death. It's a book with plenty of action, twists, and surprises, and some of the more vivid characters I've ever created.
I hope you'll give it a try.

This is the fourth installment in Jonathan Dunsky’s series featuring Israeli private investigator Adam Lapid. Almost no one escapes suspicion in this hardboiled tale mixing love, obligation, hope, despair, counterfeiting, the black market, and murder. And just when you think Lapid has collared the perpetrator, he reveals a new layer to the mystery.
To my mind, this is the best of the Adam Lapid mysteries published so far, though all have been page-turners, which is my basic rule in reviewing fiction. It fully merits a five-star review. I only hope Jonathan Dunsky has more stories in the works. Having read through the first four books in the last two weeks, I’m already jonesing for another.
Lapid had a past that stretches back to police detective days in Hungary and the Nazi concentration camps, the camps that took the lives of his wife and daughters and the camps where he almost died. He has a postwar history in Europe, when he spent time in Germany helping to hunt down and murder some of the Nazis who escaped the Allied armies. And he has a history in the Israeli war for independence in 1947-48, when he performed a particularly heroic (or foolhardy, or both) action in the Sinai that got him wounded.
He’s at Greta’s one evening when a man is found dead right outside the café. Lapid knows the man, one Nathan Frankel. He knew Frankel only recently in Tel Aviv, but he knew him even more in Auschwitz. Frankel was the man who saved Lapid’s life after a particularly brutal beating with a whip by a Nazi camp guard, the beating that left permanent scars on Lipid’s back. The detective figures he owes a debt to Frankel, one that will determine Lapid to find who killed the man.
It’s a debt that will take Lapid into people involved with illegal currency exchange, black market activities, organized crime, police corruption, and personal passion. “A Debt of Death” is the fourth (and most recently published) Adam Lapid mystery novel by Jonathan Dunsky, and it’s an excellent entry in an already excellent series.
The first three Adam Lapid mysteries are “Ten Years Gone;” “The Dead Sister;” and “The Auschwitz Violinist.” He’s also published “The Favor: A Tale of Friendship and Murder;” “Grandma Rachel’s Ghosts;” “Family Ties;” “Tommy’s Touch: A Fantasy Love Story;” “and other works. He was born in Israel, served four years in the Israeli Army, lived in Europe for several years, and currently lives in Israel with his family. He has worked in various high-tech firms and operated his own search optimization business.
Dunsky works Israeli history and its criminal underbelly so well that the reader seems to walk the streets with Lapid as he searches for a killer and pays his debt. “A Debt of Honor” is one fine mystery read.
