Format: Paperback
Away for the weekend recently, I picked up a copy of Faye Kellerman's "Day of Atonement" in the guest bedroom's book basket, (nice touch), and found it to be an intriguing and refreshingly delightful mystery. I really do like noir, but have perhaps been reading too much of fiction's dark side lately. This is a terrific change of pace. Although Ms. Kellerman's novel has its share of gruesomeness - a boy's disappearance, a psychopathic killer, etc. - the ethnic/cultural aspect of the story is as unusual as a sleuth series which focuses on family values.
"Day of Atonement" is the fourth in the Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus novels. However, one can easily get to know the characters and their history without having read the prior books. Peter Decker, a detective with the Los Angeles police, and his new bride Rina Lazarus are spending their honeymoon in Boro Park, Brooklyn, at the home of Rina's ex in-laws. Rina, an Orthodox Jewess had been widowed early in her first marriage and has two small sons. The couple and their boys are visiting for the High Holy Days, allowing the grandparents time with their grandchildren while Peter is still on vacation. Although Peter's birth mother was Jewish, he was raised as a Baptist and recently converted.
During the New Year dinner celebration, Peter is shocked when he comes face-to-face with a family secret, a bizarre coincidence which shakes him to the core. He has to put on his detective hat, however, even if he is discombobulated. As the meal begins, and then ends, it becomes apparent that a fourteen year-old boy is missing. Noam Levine, a relative of the family they are visiting, is a troubled youth, a real loner. Decker is called upon to use his best investigative skills to find the boy, who is in serious danger.

Brilliant service. Excellent book. Faye Kellermen brings a new twist to the detective novel by introducing religion in a readable format and the bigotry which is not just in society as a whole but in the departments which are meant to defend that society. This is the fourth book in a series so it is important to read the first three to understand the characters and the dynamic between rina and peter. Must read for anyone who enjoys the detective genre but wants a newer fresher format.

Faye Kellerman again manges to combine a well plotted crime mystery with the great backdrop of the Decker family and other familiar characters. Day of Atonement fully absorbs the reader and makes him/her want to find out what happens in the next novel. Faye Kellerman doesn't have to rely on the gore and autopsies of some of her fellow writers to excite the reader.
