“A Covenant With Death” by Stephen Becker

My mother worked for some time with the late Victor Rabinowitz, who became a close friend of hers.  He was, among other things, extremely literary, but his favorite book was this mass-market legal thriller, the story of a young man faced with a tough decision who makes the just choice.  It was a fun read, and I am certainly not surprised that it would appeal to a lawyer with leftist politics, but I don’t think either my mother or I understand exactly what so endeared it to Victor.
