The Golem of Hollywood by Jonathan Kellerman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Rather tedious especially as it keeps alternating between the past (Biblical Adam and Eve) and the present and several mysteries.
Jacob Lev has been tasked by "Special Projects" with finding the killer whose calling card is the Hebrew word for Justice and a severed head. When the victim turns out to be one of the Creeper Killers he starts hunting down the Creeper's partners in crime. His inquires take him to Prague where he stumbles on his family's personal history with the MaHaRal and his connection with the Golem of Prague.
Haunted by the mysterious Mai he allows her to escape after she saves his life even though he realizes she is the killer he and "Special Projects" seeks.
Dismayed to find that his Mother isn't dead but locked away in a nursing home Jacob has more questions than answers at the end of the book.
