Publisher's Description

Crime-solving Rabbi Small retires from the synagogue only to find himself hard at work on a beguiling murder case

After three decades of dealing with temple politics and getting involved with more than a handful of murder investigations, Rabbi David Small is ready to retire from his synagogue in the cozy Boston suburb of Barnard’s Crossing. For years, his secret desire has been to permanently take up teaching, but when he finally leaves the synagogue to pursue that dream, life at a university proves more dangerous than he thought.
 
Late at night, a notoriously ambitious college professor dies in a car wreck. The academic had been drinking heavily, but evidence suggests that the crash might not have been an accident. The local police are stumped and enlist the only detective they know whose astute eye and quick mind come from a higher power: Rabbi Small.

 

Author Bio

Harry Kemelman (1908–1996) was best known for his popular rabbinical mystery series featuring the amateur sleuth Rabbi David Small. Kemelman wrote twelve novels in the series, the first of which, Friday the Rabbi Slept Late, won the Edgar Award for Best First Novel. This book was also adapted as an NBC made-for-TV movie, and the Rabbi Small Mysteries were the inspiration for the NBC television show Lanigan’s Rabbi. Kemelman’s novels garnered praise for their unique combination of mystery and Judaism, and with Rabbi Small, the author created a protagonist who played a part-time detective with wit and charm. Kemelman also wrote a series of short stories about Nicky Welt, a college professor who used logic to solve crimes, which were published in a collection entitled The Nine Mile Walk.
 
Aside from being an award-winning novelist, Kemelman, originally from Boston, was also an English professor.

Editorial Reviews

"A deft murder mystery . . . Very smooth and wonderfully sly." —The New York Times Book Review
 
"Engaging." —New York Newsday
 
"[A] welcome encore from the always entertaining Kemelman . . . Lively dialogue, dry wit and wonderfully authentic detail make this a sure winner." —Publishers Weekly
 
"Ingenious . . . Highly recommended." —The New York Times on Thursday the Rabbi Walked Out
 
"A first-rate mystery." —The New Yorker on Friday the Rabbi Slept Late
 
"Vintage Kemelman—clean prose, quiet wit, absorbing characters, and revealing conversations, with David’s discourses on Judaism as fascinating as ever." —Publishers Weekly on That Day the Rabbi Left Town
