Show my boss the power of AskMe by indentifying this half-remembered mystery story/novel for her, please...

She remembers reading a mystery ages ago about a stolen torah scroll. The torah was hidden in a stack of player piano scrolls, and only discovered when some kids tried to put it in the piano and play it. What story is this?

So was she sufficiently impressed with AskMe karma? I'm dying to know...

jeanmari, she said she was "in awe." Heck, eighteen minutes-- I'm mighty impressed, myself. BAM! indeed. Thanks a bunch.

Aw, it's nothin, FOB. That's why we love Abebooks keywords search.

Whoop! Thanks jeanmari -- I've been thinking a lot lately about the difficulty of searching words just in books -- it's always hard to traverse the trash in google & doing it and Amazon doesn't really fit the bill. One usually needs to know some more details other than a keyword. But that site looks to be the deal. :- ) Take a gold star from petty cash and have the rest of the day off. You too FOB.
