Format: Paperback
Having read all of Kellerman's Decker series this book was eagerly awaited. However, like the last I found it quite disappointing. Unlike the tour de force of say, Serpents Tooth, I felt we were very much rehasing familiar ground. Again Decker is caught up searching for a young Jewish relative from New York, we have been here before Kaye...
On unfamiliar ground Decker struggles to investigate the case and enlists the help of a young pyschopath Chris Donatti to help him out. This seems little more than a device to involve Rina more in the story as the psycho in question has a yen for our detective's wife. Kellerman seems intent on beefing up Rina's story in her recent books.
I still enjoyed the disection of Jewish culture but found the ending unsatisfactory as it seemed to happen by accident not by detection, a trait which I find common to both Kaye and Jonathan Kellerman. Could do better

After reading several of Faye Kellerman's books (including Stalker), I always find her slow to start.... but when she does - she does. This book is no exception. From chapter 20 onwards it's a can't put the book down case!!
Knowing the author from previous books kept my interest going throughout the start - but new people to this book would have been tempted to give up!
Keep reading through - as it does get better!

Format: Paperback
Peter Decker, detective supremo,from LA meets his match in the big city, New York. Lt. Decker is asked by his brother come lately,Jonathan, an Orthodox Jewish Rabbi, to come to New York to help find the murderer of his brother-in-law. Decker and his wife Rina Lazarus had planned a vacation, but they take this side trip to help family. The plot becomes quite complicated, but easily understood by Faye Kellerman's exquisite writing. She has found a true fan in me with this book. She explains the Orthodox Jewish faith through Rabbi Jonathan and stories of his family. The New York crime family comes to life with the re-introduction of Chris Donatti. Decker saved Donatti's girlfriend in a previvous story and helped her back on her feet. Donatti does not forget this, and even though Decker helps to make his shoddy life much more difficult, he sees Decker through some dangerous times. Lots of gore, mystery and surprises- so well written that I started to think of Rina as a friend that I wanted to warn of the dangers ahead. Decker and Rina extricate themselves and their family from this situation as Decker solves the murder and is looked at as the hero of the day. Off they go to Florida for a fun vacation with family where a letter arrives for Rina and the next mystery is born.

Format: Paperback
Rina Decker,the heroine of this book is infuriatingly smug, and when the villian is moved by her beauty, goodness (and religious knowledge!) I wanted to be sick. This was just one of the many moments in the book that were completely unbelievable.

However, I read the book to the very end so Kellerman must have some ability to keep her reader interested.

It would be interesting to see perfect Rina cope with one of her sons coming out as gay or -worse- wanting to marry a non-jewish girl but I can't see Kellerman being brave enough to face those issues.

Format: Audio CD
Fans of Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus mysteries will welcome the return of this popular pair. All will welcome a convincing, subtly paced reading by stage, film and television actor Dennis Boutsikaris.
Things were abnormally serene in the Decker/Lazarus household until LAPD Lt. Decker receives a cry for help. Rabbi Jonathan Levine, his half-brother phones with the horrible news that the Rabbi's brother-in-law has been murdered. The man's naked body was discovered in one of Manhattan's flea bag hotels.
Perhaps worse the slain man's 15-year-old niece is missing. She may have a clue to the man's death; more importantly, she is a young girl who has evidently disappeared.
Peter and Rina fly to New York, where he knows he will be seen as an interloper by the local police, but he did not expect the antipathy he received from the missing girl's relatives. Things get really hot when Peter is forced to search the dark streets of Manhattan alone. It is not long before he becomes a target. But, why?
The plot and dialogue are typical Kellerman - for her fans that is more than enough.
