Format: Paperback
The sixth of Faye Kellerman's Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus novels (the first of the series was "The Ritual Bath"). Peter Decker is a Homicide Detective with other things on his mind - his wife has just given birth to a daughter. But, in what at first seems like a case of abduction and a negligence claim against the hospital, a newborn is taken from the ward. Suspicion immediately falls on a missing nurse, but it's not as simple as that.
Faye Kellerman writes fluidly and intelligently. She handles words, characterisation and plot with style and precision and has built a convincing partnership out of Decker and his relationship with Lazarus - the woman he meets investigating a crime and who goes on to become his girlfriend, marry him, and so on. Kellerman constructs terse psychological thrillers which move at pace-turning speed and which keep you engaged and entertained.
"Grievous Sin" is an excellent mystery which captures your attention from page one and keeps your eyes locked to the page. As the first Kellerman I'd read, it left me determined to backtrack and start with the first in the series. It's an intriguing partnership, Decker and Lazarus, and Kellerman handles their dynamics well. Good book, well worth reading.

This is a good detective story with an interesting plot and ingenious twists but too much Jewish baby paraphernalia plugged in irrelevant to the story just to give the book length.

Format: Paperback
This is a mystery about every new mothers worse nightmare. What if right after you've delivered your baby; the babe not more than 20 hours old - someone stole the baby from the hospitals nursery?

And that along with some interesting side stories that have to do with Pete, Rina and Cindy.

Rina has just had her baby and is dealing with some very personal issues, when another baby goes missing from the hospital. Cindy just happens to be with her new sibling in the nursery when this happens and is being treated as a sort of witness. It is actually very hard to recap this novel, since it was such an emotional one.

There is not a lot of action, and in the Decker novels there very rarely is, but there is a lot of interesting psychological twists and turns... not too many red herrings, but a lot of interesting conclusions to the main story and all the off-shoot stories.

The characters a very well drawn, as usual - even the ones we don't see all that often.
The author never muddies the story by over-explaining things(looks, clothing background etc).
This is a heart stopping emotional roller-coaster of a read.
