4.0 out of 5 stars offbeat mystery struggles to compete with existing series, 31 Jan 1999
By A Customer
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?)
