Helpful Score: 2
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.
