from Mom's shelf.

This is an older mystery, first published in'73, this edition in 1989. So it is in a time of student protests, the Vietnam War, Women's Lib, the sexual revolution...and there are reminders of another time (pay phone booths!), some that jar (cops as "pigs"). Initially I found this quite off-putting, but once I'd decided to just take it as historical rather than dated, I was fine.

So, the mystery itself was average, plenty of red herrings, and twists, I enjoyed Rabbi Small and a number of the smaller characters, but what I really, really liked was learning way more about Judaism. And in a way that totally worked, as Small was teaching a class in 'Jewish Thought and Philosophy' at a small private college (and the pay was 3 times what I made as an adjunct in the mid-late 90's at a public college!). And as a Rabbi, Small puts his Talmudic training to work, puzzling things out and solving the mystery.

I really enjoyed this, and will be looking for other Rabbi Small mysteries.
