Another great Rina/Peter story. Great job by Faye on having Rina's son mixed up in the story line. As they are getting older it is nice to see their children deal with the same issues as our own kids do. This one kept me in suspense all the way through. I also loved how Rina was brought in to help with the case and do some digging on her own.

Kellerman writes about what she knows and it shows in the development of her characters and storyline. In the continuing story of Peter Decker/ Rina Lazuras, they work together to solve the mystery of who desecrated the synagogue and the murders of a young man and his therapist. As with all of her novels this is one that keeps you turning the pages and burning the midnight oil to finish it.

A good mystery/detective story. "...featuring LAPD homicide detective Peter Decker and his wife, Rina Lazarus..." The story centers around troubled youths, dysfunctional families, computer hacking and the concentration camps of WWII. Odd ending ... left me with the feeling that there might be someone else involved but still out there.

A. homicide detective Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus, his Orthodox Jewish wife, return in a new entry in this popular series. Faye Kellerman can be counted on to deliver emotional complexity along with suspense, and in The Forgotten it comes from the relationship between Peter and Jacob, Rina's troubled teenage son. Jacob has a personal connection to the event that sets off this intricately plotted novel, the defacing of Rina's synagogue by one of his classmates. Ernesto Golding can't explain why he vandalized the synagogue, but when he and his therapists are murdered months after the incident, Peter realizes that something the teenager told him when admitting his guilt may hold the key to the killings: Ernesto's belief that his grandfather may have been a Nazi who posed as a Jew to escape to South America after the war. Investigating Ernesto's story gives Rina a strand of the plot to tease out; meanwhile, Peter concentrates on another motive for the therapist murders that involves computer fraud, the College Board exams, and the high cost exacted by parents who pressure their teenagers to succeed.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
"The unofficial caretaker of her small store-front synagogue, Rina is shocked when she receives a morning call from the police. The modest place of worship has been desecrated with anti-Semitic graffiti and grisly Nazi death-camp photographs. Rina's husband, Lt. Peter Decker, is also rocked by this outrage, which cuts close to the spiritual heart of his family, but he can't let his emotions get in the way of his duties." "A suspect is soon in custody. Seventeen-year-old Ernesto Golding is one of L.A's children of wealth and privilege, a rich kid obsessed with haunting suspicions about the origins of his Polish paternal grandfather, who moved to Argentina after the Third Reich collapsed. Charges are brought against Ernesto, a deal is cut, and the vandalism case is eventually closed." "Still, Decker has never abandoned the possibility that others were involved in the desecration. And his hunch is confirmed when, six months later, Ernesto is found brutally murdered along with his therapist, Dr. Mervin Baldwin, at the psychologist's exclusive nature camp that caters to the wealthy's troubled children. Suspicion falls immediately on Baldwin's psychologist wife, Dee, who has vanished mysteriously. Further probing by Decker fails to produce quick answers and simple solutions." For Decker and Rina, unraveling the truth behind Ernesto's violent death becomes more terrifying with each sinister twist, pushing them into the ghastly world of ruthless parents and damaged youths. Slowly, lethal secrets with roots in the horrors of a past generation surface, propelling Peter and Rina into a dreaded journey of dark and evil - and of ultimate retribution.
