From the Inside Flap
Rabbi David Small takes a break from the Barnard's Crossing's pulpit to teach a course on Jewish thought at a small community college. But he soon discovers all is not idyllic behind the ivy-colored walls. When a bomb goes off in the dean's office, the peaceful campus mood is shattered and everyone -- from professors and students to the indefatigable rabbi himself -- is suspected . . . of murder. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

You get to know all the characters before having to figure out who dunnit and why. This time the how is worthy of Sherlock Holmes.
Along the way you are treated to glimpses of how people thought in the 1970's -- which is very differently from today. But what they had to think about is hauntingly similar. The more things change, the more they stay the same!
It's not exactly what he expects. He has struggles with his rambunctious students. Meanwhile a bomb goes off in one office, and a professor is killed in another.
As often happens, the rabbi goes from being a suspect to amazing the cops with his shrewd observations and brilliant rabbinical deductions.
These books paint a fascinating picture of Jewish congregational politics. In this book we also get a picture of academic politics. And this was written in the sixties, so the rabbi finds himself dealing with a new breed of students, rebellious and outspoken.
While the rabbi instructs his lively students in Jewish thought, we learn along with them. The rabbi is as good a teacher as he is a detective. This is a charming series, with a wonderfully original sleuth.
