Serpent's Tooth is something of a surprise because Faye Kellerman's mysteries are usually so upfront and personal.... here she deviates from her formula by putting Decker in charge of a mass murder at a fashionable L.A. eatery. The scope of the investigation is broad and the moralizing is kept to a minimum, giving Decker a rare chance to do some solid police work.

My 1st Faye Kellerman novel & I plan to read more. I've never come across Orthodox Jewish detectives before & the culture is worked into the plot quite naturally. A good mystery.

The novel begins with a horrific mass murder in a fashionable restaurant. Lieutenant Decker is put in charge of the investigation and he starts to uncover the layers of corruption involving many of the victims and their family members. This thriller has good character development and a strong story line. If you are a mystery buff, you will love this suspensful novel! Warning--some foul language used gratuitously.

Story follows Peter Decker and his wife Rina Lazarus and centers around a mass murder. Fun reading, gets you involved, and you'll love to hate some of the characters.

A page turner, author Faye K. did it again with these very familiar characters.

Homicide Detective Peter Decker. A man walks into a trendy Los Angeles restaurant ... a disgruntled ex-employee with an automatic weapon ... and seconds later thirteen people are dead and thirty-two more have been wounded. It is a heinous act of mass slaughter that haunts Detective Decker.

I just received this book on Friday in the mail and couldn't wait to read it! I had to finish the book I was reading but I read this in a 24 hour period. No, I did sleep too. :) A psycho guns down patrons at a posh restaurant in Los Angeles, killing 14 and wounding around 30 others. To Peter Decker's Homicide Division team, things don't add up when the evidence is tagged - it appears there were two shooters not just the one who committed suicide. The investigation takes them into the world of the wealthy; their country club, their private prep school, their spoiled teenagers. They all know who masterminded the slaughter but proving it seems unsurmountable. Great book - it is exciting and well-written as all of Ms. Kellerman's books are. The added benefit is more of Rina, Peter and their children's interaction. Love this series!

As good as all the other Decker/Lazarus mysteries. Better if you have followed the series from the begining.

This is my favorite Peter Decker book so far. You see a lot more of his family in this book in an unexpected but fun way. A must read if you like the Decker books.

From the book cover, "A man walks into a trendy Los Angeles restaurant - a disgruntled ex-employee whith an automatic weapon - and seconds later, thirteen people are dead and thirty-two more have been wounded. It is a heinous act of mass slaughter that haunts Homicide Detective Peter Decker.

But, though eyewitnesses saw only the lone gunman - who apparently took his own life after his bloody work was done - evidence suggests more than one weapon was fired. It is a disturbing inconsistency that sends Decker racing headlong into a sordid, labyrinthine world of Southern California money and power, on an investigation that threatens to destroy his reputation and his career."
