Friday the Rabbi Slept Late by Harry Kemelman is the first in the series of mysteries featuring Rabbi David Small. Rabbi Small is a brand-new rabbi, a newlywed, working on his PhD about Moses Maimonides, and enjoying his tenure in his seaside Massachusetts temple.

One Friday night a dead woman is found in the temple parking lot; her purse is found in the back seat of Rabbi Small's car. The temple board of directors thinks that they need a more experienced rabbi - one more conservative, and one a little older. Things are not going well for David Small.

I loved the Rabbi David Small mysteries when I was a teenager. I have a lifelong fascination for Judaism, and these books offered an eager young woman the chance to have a glimpse into rabbinic life, and I was intrigued by new-to-me words and ideas such as minyan and Talmud and phylacteries. I'm in my late 50s now, and I found the narrative rather dull, the mysteries contrived, and the outdatedness of the male/female relationship within and without marriage made me wince more than once.

I have three more David Small books on my reader (they came in an inexpensive four-pack), and I will probably finish them, as despite their outdated quality, they are relaxing and easy to read, which are great qualities when my days are stressful. ( )

Came back to read the first in series because I wanted to know how the Rabbi got to be friends with the police chief. This one comes near the end of Rabbi Small's firs and possibly last year in the town. There is contention within the politics of the congregation and things get muddier when a young woman is killed and Rabbi Small seems to be implicated. Great story with lessons for all sleuths.
George Guidell is the calm narrator with a wry sense of humor. ( )

Friday the Rabbi Slept Late by Harry Kemelman is the first book in the Rabbi Small series. It was published in 1964. Friday the Rabbi Slept Late won an Edgar Award for Best First Novel in 1965.

Kemelman was already an established mystery story writer when after witnessing the discord between the rabbi and the people of his congregation he decided to write a book about it. His editor suggested that the book could be made more appealing by weaving a murder mystery in to the plot. Kemelman obliged by making the Rabbi an amateur detective. That is how the character of Rabbi David Small was born.

Rabbi David Small is not very popular with his congregation. Talks of dismissing him are in the air. Things get even more complicated when the dead body of a young girl is found at the synagogue parking lot and all the clues point to him. Rabbi Small decides to get to the bottom of it before it’s too late.

The book tries to provide an insight into Judaism. They are interesting but I was impatient for the mystery to go on. This was a good sign really because if the reader cannot wait to get back to the main mystery and ignores the side plots, the main mystery must be quite satisfactory.

The central mystery is relatively thin. I knew who the killer was as soon as the character was introduced. But that could have something to do with me being the mystery addict that I am and reading way too many mysteries to be surprised any more.

This could be called a cosy mystery but there are at least hints of other stronger elements like adulterous affairs, illegitimate pregnancies, sexual perversions, racism; etc.

The book reflects its time period very, very unmistakably. Men and women act a certain way, the husbands talk to the wives a certain way, everyone, including the pregnant women, smokes all the time (one woman even has a cigarette for breakfast!); etc, etc. It takes a while to get used to the whole attitude.

The characters are good. They are nothing extraordinary but are not annoying either. The characters of the Rabbi's wife, Miriam and the local police chief, Hugh Lanigan are interesting.

Friday the Rabbi Slept Late is nothing groundbreaking. It is a predictable sort of a story. But overall, it was a pleasant read. I wouldn’t mind reading more mysteries by Harry Kemelman. ( )

I've been meaning to start this series for some time and I'm really glad I finally got around to it.

This vintage 1964 book has all the elements of a great mystery; all the clues are fairly presented to the reader and a brilliant sleuth in Rabbi David Small. It's not-quite-a-cozy.

Definitely a series I'm continuing on with. ( )

Written in 1964, the book won the 1965 Edgar Award for first novel. Reading it, I can see why. It is a gentle mystery that isn't quite a cozy mystery. It blurs the line between solving the mystery with straight logic and a mystery with a warm, fuzzy character. While Rabbi Small is fuzzy about some things, there is nothing fuzzy about his intellect or understanding of the Jewish religion.

This classic-style mystery plays fair with the reader. All the clues are there; the rabbi simply assembles them first. I love that sort of mystery, so I will be reading more.

While I had read some books in this series long ago in my early teens, this wasn't one of them. However, I loved it as much as I remember loving the other books.

Highly recommended for people who enjoy mysteries. ( )
