Read full description of the books:
"That Day the Rabbi Left Town" is one of the Rabbi Small murder mysteries. It's pretty good in that it doesn't dwell too much into Jewish politics and it doesn't date itself too much like previous Rabbi Small novels.
The Story: Rabbi Small has finally resigned from the synagogue and a new rabbi has taken his place. If you will recall the first Rabbi Small novel, Friday the Rabbi Slept Late, Rabbi Small was the new rabbi in town (over 20 years earlier) and he was connected with a murder when a body was found in his car. Now the new rabbi is connected with a murder and Rabbi Small helps to solve the case.
Any problems with the novel? Well... it has adult subjects in the sense that it talks about sex occasionally but I've seen worse stuff in commercials on TV. The novel also moves along a little more quickly than I think is credible. The characters seem so self-revealing as if they have been in therapy a little too long to be good for them.
Finally, it is clear that law enforcement is doing things that would not be allowed in the current day, so that tends to date the novel. You see... most people of my age and older would find what the police do in this novel to be reassuring and normal. Young people today would get the impression that the police are doing something terribly wrong (and technically it is wrong) and that the police are corrupt. If you get the impression from this book that the police are corrupt then you are reading the book out of context.
This is my second time reading the book but it's been so long since the last time that forgot who had committed the murder. It was a mystery to me... again.
