A collection of four novels from the New York Times–bestselling, Edgar Award–winning mystery series starring a rabbi in a tiny New England town. Spend a long weekend with the scholar and spiritual leader who watches over the Jewish community in 1960s Barnard’s Crossing, Massachusetts—and in his spare time, solves crimes. Friday the Rabbi Slept Late: A young nanny is found dead in the temple parking lot—and her purse is discovered in Rabbi David Small’s car. Now he has to collaborate with the local Irish-Catholic police chief to exonerate himself. Saturday the Rabbi Went Hungry: Yom Kippur, the holiest day on the Jewish calendar, is defiled when a body is found—and the rabbi must uncover who has something to atone for. Sunday the Rabbi Stayed Home: When Passover is overshadowed by congregational politics and a murder at a local university, the rabbi must study the clues. Monday the Rabbi Took Off: Rabbi Small journeys to Israel for a bit of peace, but instead has to team up with an Orthodox cop to unravel a bombing case. Don’t miss these four mystery novels featuring an amateur detective who uses Talmudic logic—an introduction to the multimillion-selling series that provides both “an eye-opening snapshot of a particular time in Jewish-American history” and delightfully entertaining whodunits (Los Angeles Review of Books).

Der alte Jordan ist ungeheuer reich - und ein ungeheures Ekel. So wundert es eigentlich niemanden, dass er eines Tages erschossen wird. Die Liste der Verdächtigen ist lang und Polizeichef Lanigan muss feststellen, dass gute Alibis in der Stadt Mangelware sind. Rabbi David Small versagt unterdessen kläglich an einer Schießbude – und beweist damit, dass er bei den unmöglichsten Gelegenheiten die besten Ideen hat. Der siebte Fall für den klugen Rabbi und leidenschaftlichen Amateurdetektiv David Small.
