The actual mystery was good. I feel like I'm getting an inside view of my parents' generation and a Jewish community. ( )

Wonderful Rabbi Small mystery, character-driven and rich in detail and flavor of late 1970's Jewish life in New England. ( )

Set in the late 1970's, I find this mystery to be a fun little time capsule. The rabbi must not only solve the mystery of how a very sick old man died and why; he must also shepherd his flock. A very contrary flock at that. I enjoy the many layers of this story. The mystery was not unsolvable, but the why of it was a puzzler. ( )
