Jewish Values: Feast of Fools

Note: 
Set in a cathedral town during the Middle Ages, this mystery involves corrupt priests, deadly sins, and murder. The medieval setting is very well realized and an essential background to the characterization and plot. Two Christian boys are the main characters and a subplot involves the Jews of the town, whose treatment epitomizes the anti-Semitism of the age. Engrossing and off-beat.
