But most of all I like the rabbi. He tends to solve social problems by consulting Talmudic law. He walks with a scholarly stoop, even though he's still under forty. He makes no attempt to impress, and is generally rather rumpled. And he's always ready to help people, whether they're in his congregation or not.
This willingness gets him involved in an interesting case. An old man dies due to a mix-up between two prescriptions. Was it just a mistake, or was it murder? And if murder, who caused the mix-up? It's up to the rabbi to figure out what happened, because his old friend the police chief is suspicious of all the wrong people.
The plot is rich in temple politics, personal conflicts, and slick business dealings – peppered with a little romance and a lot of Jewish philosophy.
I love these books.
So far this is the one I've enjoyed most and I've enjoyed all of them. The story is a little more twisty but it's easy to follow and he's made the characters a bit more interesting than the others.

As expected, this was a fun, entertaining and educational experience. I hope to be able to reread the rest of the Rabbi books.Published 2 months ago by Peg
I love these Kemelman books. Intriguing, but mysteries you can relax and read. Doesn't raise the blood pressure, just keeps your mind alert.Published 17 months ago by Christine Y. Hankins
