The Day the Rabbi Resigned
Best-selling author Harry Kemelman's mysteries involving Rabbi David Small have enthralled readers for decades. Full of quirky characters and carefully drawn settings, the books are beloved for their dry wit and authentic detail. For nearly 25 years, Rabbi Small has maintained an uneasy relationship with his congregation. He sees his role as that of a teacher, while they often look to him as more of a spiritual leader. Now, just as his congregation is set to reward him for his long service, the rabbi has decided to explore new options with his life. To make things more complicated, the recent murder of a college professor has the Barnard's Crossing police baffled. Can the rabbi's quiet introspection offer insights the police may have overlooked? Personally approved by the author's estate, narrator George Guidall voices the delightful characters and situations in this final book of an always-intriguing series.
