4.0 out of 5 stars offbeat mystery struggles to compete with existing series
When she invented Pete Decker and Rina Lazarus Faye Kellerman launched one of the most refreshing series in the field of crime and mystery writing. The characters are multi-dimensional, the plotting rings true and the reader always ends up empathizing with hero and heroine. In fact, the only criticism might be that the characters are too good. So what do we get in...

1.0 out of 5 stars Moon Music
I love the Pete Decker series that FK writes so was looking forward to this book too but it was a huge disappointment. The plot tried to be clever and unorthodox but just came out as lame, it seemed like FK couldn't be bothered to have a real ending so created something bizarre at the last minute. The characters were unsympathetic and to be honest i didn't care who...

1.0 out of 5 stars Moon Music, 17 Jan 2008
This review is from: Moon Music (Paperback)
I love the Pete Decker series that FK writes so was looking forward to this book too but it was a huge disappointment. The plot tried to be clever and unorthodox but just came out as lame, it seemed like FK couldn't be bothered to have a real ending so created something bizarre at the last minute. The characters were unsympathetic and to be honest i didn't care who lived or died. I also found the first half of the book very confusing as it jumped around a lot and the characters all seemed to merge together.

I hate to say this about a Faye Kellerman book but don't bother, you'll be sorely disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars So disappointing, 24 Oct 2007

This review is from: Moon Music (Paperback)
As a fan of the Peter Decker series, I picked this up expecting the same high quality as the Decker novels. Unfortunately, this did not deliver. Plot lines which are unrealistic, time frames which jump all over the place and unbelievable characters.

Do not buy this book, you will be disappointed.

This review is from: Moon Music (Paperback)
When she invented Pete Decker and Rina Lazarus Faye Kellerman launched one of the most refreshing series in the field of crime and mystery writing. The characters are multi-dimensional, the plotting rings true and the reader always ends up empathizing with hero and heroine. In fact, the only criticism might be that the characters are too good. So what do we get in Moon Music ? A cop with distinctly unattractive characteristics and behaviour towards women, a heroine who never manages to develop under his shadow, and a plot that mixes mystery with mysticism. Oh, and a supporting cast borrowed both from a freak show and the Decker/Lazarus series; another female cop with weight and boyfriend problems, for instance... The whole thing has a feel as if it was a plot for Pete & Rina where FK couldn't find a way of linking them to the location that's central to the plot. Nevertheless, it's a great read, and the characters, with development, deserve a second outing, although it would be nice to find someone in FK's world who didn't have a dysfunctional family somewhere in their lives...(Only joking; we all know tension creates drama, don't we?)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 4 July 2013

This is a fantastic book. So different from the normal detective series. The fantasy side of it is great and knowing Las Vegas well, found that it was very accurate. I was hooked from start to finish. I was hoping she was going to make a series of them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother............., 5 Jan 2013
This review is from: Moon Music (Paperback)
As I have always enjoyed the Decker series I was looking forward to this one but it soon hit the wall. Didn't like it at all. Shame the writing wasn't up to scratch after the Decker series. It's a stand-alone and maybe that's the problem.

Back Cover Blurb:
Las Vegas. The Babylon of twentieth century America. A city on the edge of a desert, its inhabitants living on the edge of their nerves. Amongst them is Detective Sergeant Romulus Poe, assigned to the murder of a showgirl whose horrifically mauled body, Poe realises, has echoes of a twenty-five year old unsolved case.
But the half-forgotten past is soon swamped by present anxieties as Poe discovers that his colleague, Homicide Detective Steve Jensen, had an illicit relationship with the dead woman. And Poe's own relationship with Jensen's wife Alison is fraught with guilt: childhood playmate, teenage lover, adult friend and mainstay, Poe has never disentangled himself from the ties that Alison, afflicted with anorexia and a habitually unfaithful husband, exerts.
Then, as Poe watches Alison's tortured struggles with her body, he begins to wonder whether her obsessive research into what went on in the wastes of the Nevada desert three decades earlier might hold a key to the identity of the frighteningly animalistic murderer still at large......

1.0 out of 5 stars rubbish, 28 May 2001
By 
This review is from: Moon Music (Paperback)
The author writes excellent detective stories with a Jewish slant,this book can only have been a momentary aberration as it is completely unbelievable,the basic premise is ludicrous being that exposure to nuclear radiation leads to a kind of vampiric transformation.I can only hope that she resumes her Rina Lazarus stories and leaves the Science Fantasy to people who have the vaguest notion of their subject
