Harry Kemelman (Author 1908-1996) knew a lot about Judaism (at least a semi-secular version from the 1960's) but totally lacked understanding of Christian (particularly Protestant) beliefs and practices. Had he stuck with explaining Judaism and hadn't tried to make those erroneous comparisons to Christianity, I might have enjoyed this book and I really wanted to like it. As it is, I was so offended by my faith being so misrepresented that I returned this book without finishing reading it. This is really too bad as his Rabbi Small mysteries, though dated, are really quite interesting and enjoyable.

This was the best in all the series, once again Rabbi Small brings his formidable knowledge and understanding to solve what appears to be an insoluble problem. For those anxiously wondering who will be murdered, the answer is no one.
Nevertheless, this book is really addictive as we weave our way through the conversations with Miriam, Joan Aaron, Jane, Aaron's parents and Joan's father.
No, I refuse to say anymore because I don't want to spoil it for you. Just sit back and listen.
