Publisher's Summary

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. Best-selling 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.

Love this series

I had read the initial day-of-the-week books in this series in hard copy many years ago. They are all gentle stories without being "Romance" novels. Since George Guidell is among my favorite five narrators I decided to give the audio version a try. I was not disappointed in either the novel or the reader.
