Peter and Rina are on their honeymoon in Brooklyn, not exactly what Peter would have planned. He also would not have planned meeting his birth mother or becoming involved in a family problem concerning a teenage son who has disappeared.
This book was not an easy read for me. The story was compelling as were the side stories. Kellerman showed what strains are probably going to happen between Peter and Rina when it comes to his work and her desire to "help". However, the antagonist of the book was just a bit too crazy and brutal for me. I found myself skipping past the bits describing the murders or their aftermath. Maybe, I just wasn't in the right mindset as I was reading......I don't know. I do know that Kellerman does a good job of giving a word picture of a psychotic killer and his mindset.
We'll see how the next one goes.
Police detective meets devout Jewish woman & marries her. In this book they are on their honeymoon in NY visiting her in-laws from her first husband who is died. Not the best place for a honeymoon. However, they manage to get themselves involved in a search for a missing teenaged boy.
Peter Decker of the LAPD never dreamed he'd be spending his honeymoon with his new wife, Rina Lazarus, in an orthodox jewish enclave in Brooklyn, New York-or that a terrible event would end it so abrubtly. But a boy has vanished from the midst of this close-knit religious community, a troubled youth fleeing the tight bonds and strictures he felt were strangling him. The runaway, Noam, is not traveling alone. A killer has taken him under his wing to introduce Noam to a savage world of blood and terror. And now Decker must find them both somewhere in America before a psycopath ends the life of a confused and frightened youngster whose only sin was to want something more.
