Elderly Comic Deals with Loneliness and Murder in Quirky Mystery


Denver, CO, March 01, 2007 --(PR.com)-- An aging comic and widower finds a new reason to face an empty life in Irv Sternberg’s latest mystery, No Laughing Matter (StarMount Press).

You are old only when your regrets replace your dreams.

Denver native Izzy Brand ponders this old Yiddish proverb when his best friend’s murder also threatens his career as a stand-up. When he vows to find the killer in a “conversation” with his late wife, she chides him: “So, Izzy, at your age, a homicide detective you’ve decided to be.”

Izzy’s search for the killer leads him into a world of white collar crime, commercial greed, and politics, as well as troubled street people and runaway teens, all in a city usually known for its idyllic mountain views. Despite his grief, Izzy continues to perform while conducting a search that involves an eccentric billionaire, a conniving state legislator, and a hard-driving developer.

More than a conventional mystery, No Laughing Matter deals with such themes as family relationships, aging in America, and greedy land developers.

In No Laughing Matter, his third mystery, Sternberg has written a suspenseful regional novel warmed by the laughter of Jewish humor.
