Rabbi David Small, the new leader of Barnard’s Crossing’s Jewish community, can’t even enjoy his Sabbath without things getting stirred up in a most unorthodox manner. It seems a young nanny has been found strangled, less than a hundred yards from the Temple’s parking lot—and all the evidence points to the rabbi.

Add to that the not-so-quiet rumblings of his disgruntled congregation and you might say our inimitable hero needs a miracle from a higher source to save him.

Quotes & Awards

  • “This zany title is sure to send listeners into peals of laughter.”

    School Library Journal

  • “This Edgar Award-winning novel was the first in the wonderful Rabbi Small series of murder mysteries. Along with solving the crime, the rabbi offers lessons in Judaism.”

    Library Journal

  • “Harry Kemelman fans consider Friday the Rabbi Slept Late to be the best of the late author’s Rabbi David Small murder mysteries. George Guidall’s narration defines the personality of the series superbly. While the novel is a whodunit, it is character-driven and also explains Judaism and aspects of synagogue politics. Guidall captures Rabbi Small’s brilliant, albeit low-key and harried, personality with ease. Guidall also excels in his ability to define the residents of Barnard’s Crossing. Whether it is Police Chief Lanigan, the rabbi’s wife, Miriam, the feuding members of the rabbi’s congregation, or the bigots populating the town, Guidall provides each with a strong yet distinct personality, enriching a book whose religious undertones are surprisingly timeles. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
