4.0 out of 5 stars Better than average, but...
OK, I'm a fan, but I have to admit that Faye Kellerman can be guilty of treading the same path repeatedly. Peter Decker is a superbly drawn character, if a little messianic in his rediscovery of faith and his endurance of suffering. Not too good to be true, but certainly there are one or two moments when the suspension of disbelief is essential. The plot here is...

3.0 out of 5 stars Kellerman books
I love Faye Kellerman, but the quality of this second hand book was poor.
Be careful when buying books on ebay. Is it always better to pay extra and buy a new copy with free P&P?

This review is from: Serpent's Tooth (Paperback)
OK, I'm a fan, but I have to admit that Faye Kellerman can be guilty of treading the same path repeatedly. Peter Decker is a superbly drawn character, if a little messianic in his rediscovery of faith and his endurance of suffering. Not too good to be true, but certainly there are one or two moments when the suspension of disbelief is essential. The plot here is Biblical in theme, complete with a massacre, (v. Old Testament), sundry wickedness, familial disloyalty, and opportunities for redemption through loyalty for Decker's extended family and his tribe of followers, friends and colleagues. The trick that Kellerman holds together is to make her theme relevant and realistic. What distracted me was the way that some themes were opened and then abandoned, as if Kellerman can't quite round the whole story up in time for the conclusion. (It's not a spoiler if I ask what was the relevance of Rina doing the books for the yeshiva ? There's plenty enough evidence for her independence and talent anyway. If she's needed to help inspire Decker, why can't he just ask her straight out, or why can't she just volunteer an opinion ? Or have I missed a trick here ?) Anyway, the long and the short is that this is better than ninety percent of the landfill in waiting that gets published, but it's not as good as Kellerman can manage on top form.

I re- read this book (as I do many of Faye Kellerman) - this is a great mix of Rina and Peter family life as well as the detective story.
