First in the New York Times–bestselling series and winner of the Edgar Award: A new rabbi in a small New England town investigates the murder of a nanny. David Small is the new rabbi in the small Massachusetts town of Barnard’s Crossing. Although he’d rather spend his days engaged in Torah study and theological debate, the daily chores of synagogue life are all-consuming—that is, until the day a nanny’s body is found on the rain-soaked asphalt of the temple’s parking lot. When the young woman’s purse is discovered in Rabbi Small’s car, he will have to use his scholarly skills and Talmudic wisdom—and collaborate with the Irish-Catholic police chief—to exonerate himself and find the real killer. Blending this unorthodox sleuth’s quick intellect with thrilling action, Friday the Rabbi Slept Late is the exciting first installment of the beloved bestselling mystery series that offers a Jewish twist on the clerical mystery, a delightful discovery for fans of Father Brown and Father Dowling or readers of Faye Kellerman’s suspense novels set in the Orthodox community.
The act seemed innocent enough: A purse left behind and an acquaintance takes it so that he can return it. But when the woman is murdered, the man with the purse becomes the prime suspect. Rabbi David Small, a new member and leader of Barnard’s Crossing’s Jewish community, has few friends he can turn to for help. Fortunately, Talmudic logic is a weapon that cuts through all misunderstandings. Rabbi Small must clear his name by helping a skeptical police force to find the real killer. Published in 1964, Harry Kemmelman’s “Friday the Rabbi Slept Late” mystery launched the Rabbi Small mystery series and won an Edgar Award for Best First Mystery Novel. The religious bent of the title caused its success to surprise many. Friday the Rabbi Slept Late kicked off a series of books and television adaptations. Before writing Friday, the Rabbi Slept Late, Harry Kemelman had written a mystery story “The Nine Mile Walk” which is widely considered one of the best mystery stories ever written and is among the most frequently anthologized.
