Sam Silver is Jewish, but as a reporter with the Dallas Morning Post in the midst of the famed 1980s newspaper war he’s too busy working and drinking — to care much about it. The late afternoon obituary he’s assigned on a Holocaust survivor seems routine…until he discovers it’s murder and learns of a mythic Jewish book: the Sefer Raziel. Angels in Dallas is not only Silver’s search for the powerful eons-old tome but for himself, too, the self he’s been running from since his father deserted nearly three decades earlier. Quirky characters, a compelling crime story, Texas history, Nazi remnants, Jewish traditions, sinister plots, mysterious women, and more are involved, with a bissel Yiddish.
