    • A Jewish scientist flees Israel with a secret formula for artificially creating diamonds indiscernible from the natural thing, pursued by Mossad agents and his own daughter, while Shaft gets hired by a group of Diamond District Hassidim who want him to find out whose offing cutters. In true detective fiction fashion the cases come together with literally explosive results (I mean, at one point there's a rocket attack).The interplay between the bewildered Shaft and the Hasids was amusing and Tidy [...]


    • Now I love all things Shaft, but this story starts on the flimsy premise that Shaft--a native New Yorker--mistakes a group of Hasidic Jews for a posse of cowboys because of their hats. Pretty weak start, Mr. Tidyman.


    • Unfortunate that Tidyman's Shaft novels are out of print and scarce. Tougher than the movies and quite a window into the grit and grime of 70s New York.


    • Ahhh, ich liebe diese Hörbuchreihe: Shaft, der schwarze Privatdetektiv, der im New York der 70er auf seine Art für Recht sorgt - diesmal im Auftrag von sieben Rabbinern, die plötzlich in seinem Appartement stehen. Im Diamanten-Bezirk herrscht Unruhe, bereits fünf Händler wurden auf ihren Reisen in den USA kaltblütig ermordet und ausgeraubt. Und der israelische Geheimdienst ist auch noch mit im Spiel. Doch wobei?Cool wie immer kämpft sich Shaft durch ein Dickicht von Gerüchten und Geheimn [...]


    • Reminded me a bit of the Spillane's Goliath Bone. I'm aware that it's not a fair comparison but they are both violent and sexy and dealing with some truly ridiculous plots (dreams of million alchemists are fulfilled in this one) involving Israel and world domination. But I remember reading Goliath Bone just made me sad for the old maestro while reading Shaft was pure fun.Like always is.More here (review includes spoilers!):a60books/2014/06/s


    • Second and best book in the Shaft series. This is a fantastic read for anyone with a hankering for seventies pulp fiction. Tidyman has a writing style that is both tough and humorous. The plot, involving the hunt for an old diamond cutter who has developed a formula for creating synthetic diamonds, provides a great backdrop for a cast of well drawn villains for Shaft to take on. There are some delicious moments of absurdity peppered with excellent dialogue. Lots of action and sex to fulfill male [...]



    • If I were a puppet (I'm your puppet) my wooden jaw would clack to the floor. ***Should the title be Shaft Amongst the Jews? I was never really clear on that grammar rule.
