This review is from: Stone Kiss (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
