Description :  <b>Crime-solving Rabbi Small retires from the synagogue only to find himself hard at work on a beguiling murder case</b><br /><br /> 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.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> 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.<br /><br /> “A deft murder mystery&#xa0;.&#xa0;.&#xa0;. Very smooth and wonderfully sly.” —<i>The New York Times Book Review</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Engaging.” —<i>New York Newsday</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “[A] welcome encore from the always entertaining Kemelman&#xa0;.&#xa0;.&#xa0;. Lively dialogue, dry wit and wonderfully authentic detail make this a sure winner.” —<i>Publishers Weekly</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Ingenious&#xa0;.&#xa0;.&#xa0;. Highly recommended.” —<i>The</i><i>New York Times</i> on <i>Thursday the Rabbi Walked Out</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “A first-rate mystery.” —<i>The New Yorker</i> on <i>Friday the Rabbi Slept Late</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Vintage Kemelman—clean prose, quiet wit, absorbing characters, and revealing conversations, with David’s discourses on Judaism as fascinating as ever.” —<i>Publishers Weekly</i> on <i>That Day the Rabbi Left Town</i>&#xa0;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, <i>Friday the Rabbi Slept Late</i>, 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 <i>Lanigan’s Rabbi</i>. 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 <i>The Nine Mile Walk</i>.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> Aside from being an award-winning novelist, Kemelman, originally from Boston, was also an English professor.

Description :  <b>A pharmaceutical mishap draws Rabbi Small into a murder investigation in this <i>New York Times </i>bestseller</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> New Age thinking has come to Barnard’s Crossing, Massachusetts. The recently elected president of Rabbi David Small’s synagogue is intent on using temple money to build a meditation retreat. The congregation is practicing yoga, buying crystals, and reciting chants. When a troubled young man returns to the town after spending time in a controversial Hasidic cult, the rabbi expects him to be another New Ager. But things take a grisly turn away from new-fangled mantras of peace and love when something terribly old fashioned happens: murder.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> An elderly patient dies after being given the wrong medication by the local pharmacist, who coincidentally is also the Hasidic man’s father. When the dead man’s family suggests the mix-up was intentional, both the druggist and his son become suspects and it’s up to Rabbi Small to investigate by drawing on some Old Testament wisdom in a village of New Age fads.<br /><br /> “A jim-dandy tale.” —<i>Pittsburgh Post-Gazette</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Kemelman has blended an endearing character with a devious plot to give us a spicy peek at mystery and the Talmudic ambience.” —<i>The San Diego Union-Tribune</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Ingenious&#xa0;.&#xa0;.&#xa0;.
