Harry Kemelman is critically acclaimed for his series featuring the unassuming hero, Rabbi David Small. In One Fine Day the Rabbi Bought a Cross, a vacation to the Holy Land quickly becomes another opportunity for the rabbi to utilize his cool-headed wit. As a favor, the rabbi looks in on Jordan Goodman, son of Barnard’s Crossing’s favorite grocers. Jordan has adopted the beliefs of a fundamentalist Jewish group, and before long, he is the only suspect in a local murder. Suddenly, the rabbi’s vacation is placed on hold. It will take a healthy dose of Talmudic logic to crack Jordan’s case, while members of the rabbi’s congregation keep a skeptical watch on developments. Bestselling author Kemelman fills his sharp mysteries with colorful characters who ring true. Narrator George Guidall was personally approved for this recording by the author’s estate. He breathes life into the sleuthing rabbi and the exotic backdrop. Download and start listening now!
