Back when mysteries were being written before computers, DNA, cell phones, etc, authors had to create characters who solved them with the powers of the human mind alone. And among the best is the "Rabbi Who..." series, in which Rabbi Small applies the wisdom of his Jewish knowledge to perplexing situations that the local police dept cannot solve on their own. These are always fascinating because not only does Harry Kemelman write good stories, he weaves in a great deal of Jewish tradition and teachings, and I find that an extra bonus!
In this book, a man who is known to be an anti-Semite is murdered, and there is no shortage of possible suspects. Rabbi Small quietly goes about using his logical way of viewing situations to shed light on things, but the listener has had many different suspects to consider along the way.
I read all these books back in the 70's, but I love their recreation through the wonderful narration of George Guidall. Don't pass up this series due to its age--they were a great read at the time, and have lost nothing over the years! I really recommend them if you like your mysteries to be good whodunnits, light on violence, and combined with lots of woven in cultural interest.
