Another great book from the Kellerman family
on 6 May 2010
Sorry, but I have to disagree with many reviewers posted here! I always grab anything written by Faye Kellerman, and have never been disappointed by her books. This one was no exception and is another fantastic book in the series featuring Pete Decker, Rina Lazarus and their respective families; continuing the tradition in the best way.
Billionaire, Guy Kaffee and his wife are murdered in a particularly brutal attack - and their eldest son, Gil, is left for dead. The two guards at the entrance to the estate are also dead, and the two meant to be guarding the house are missing. Who could be responsible? What could their motives be? Pete Decker is determined to find out! Before long, a connection to a large `gang' group becomes clear, and Pete is worried as to how the case may affect the family.
In the meantime, Rina has been called for Jury duty, where she encounters an unusual character - nicknamed by the jurors as `smiling Tom' due to a vague resemblance to Tom Cruise. Who exactly is he, and how will he connect with the mystery?
This will appeal to anyone who likes the books of Kathy Reichs and Patricia Cornwell. It is well worth adding to the holiday pile, and is a `must read' for anyone who has already read and enjoyed previous books in the series; read and enjoy!
My only query is: - what happened to Marge's adopted daughter? She hasn't been mentioned in this book!
