Saturday Morning Murder, is the first in Michael Ohayon mystery series by Batya Gur. The series has six books and the book I read came out in 1988 when I was ten years old. It later came out in print in 1993 when I was a freshman in high school.
I found it in my local library and opened it to read the first page because there is no description on the back of the book nor on the inside cover. After reading the first page I knew I had to read the book.
A revered psychoanalyst has been found dead by a fellow analyst just before a lecture she was to give. Chief Inspector Michael Oyahon arrives with his team on the scene and soon finds out this will not be an easy murder to solve. The lecture the victim was to give is missing, her home has been broken into, and her list of patients is missing.
The basis of the mystery is very good but as the story unfolds various characters give voice to their inner thoughts and to the mind of the victim. At times this got overwhelming however, the climax of the novel more than makes up for this. The last couple chapters kept me riveted and the mystery ended on a high note.
