Michael Chabon and The Yiddish Policemen’s Union.
Michael Chabon and The Yiddish Policemen’s Union. Builds upon the achievement of Kavalier & Clay, creating a completely fictional world that is as persuasively detailed as his re-creation of 1940s New York in that earlier book, even as it gives the reader a gripping murder mystery and one of the most appealing detective heroes to come along since Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe.

The novel is set in Sitka, which it depicts as a large, Yiddish-speaking metropolis.

Michael Chabon's ingenious but flawed thriller The Yiddish Policemen's Union relocates the Promised Land to Alaska, says Adam Mars-Jones. The book's hero, Meyer Landsman, is a washed-up alcoholic policeman, tough but tender, who takes on one last case, almost on a whim, and then finds that it connects up with the fates of his nearest and dearest. There's an undercurrent of sentiment in the writers Chabon has taken as his models, however gruff or steely, but it's nearer the surface here, though the dialogue never loses its salty snap.
