Mystery & Suspense • 6.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1969

George Guidall's understanding of the issues and personalities of Kemelman's 1969 novel is apparent in this reissue of the classic mystery. In this third adventure featuring Rabbi David Small, spring break brings the youth of Barnard's Crossing home for the holidays as politics threaten to tear the synagogue apart. Home from college, a group of young people on a cookout takes refuge from a storm in a vacant mansion, but the merriment turns grim when one kid turns up dead. Racism, drug abuse, and synagogue in-fighting are explored with surprising depth, and Guidall's wise, avuncular tone is up to the task. His portrayals of the anal-retentive rabbi and his jovial Irish police chief friend are vivid and believable. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2008]
