Another bit of light reading. This time the rabbi has been there six years, and his five-year contract is about to run out. The grass starts looking greener over the fence, and when the congregation starts to split he is tempted for a short time to take another job. His irritation with the congregation’s president, who treats David as just another employee wanes, and his growing trust in the the local chief of police flowers into a real friendship. He helps solve another murder, his differences with the president are resolved, and future is secure—for another year.
