2nd book in Faye Kellerman's series does not disappoint. Love the rising tension between Decker and Rina and the unfolding relationship he has with her sons. The case itself is thick with twists and turns. Highly recommend.
Excellent mystery and twists and turns. Great Faye Kellerman novel.
Faye Kellerman manages to combine a solid police mystery with the conflict of two people who love each other, but have very different religious beliefs.
I liked the first book of the series better than this one, but the other books that I have read in the series so far have been pretty good. I can't wait to see what happens next!
The SECOND book in the series featuring Peter Decker, LAPD detective and Rina Lazarus, his wife in Los Angeles, California.
I had a hard time putting this book down! Another great story in the series! The characters are wonderful!
I'm not usually a reader of detective stories, but between the romance between Decker & Rina and the elements of orthodox Judaism, this series has won me over. For these reasons, I was glad I read this book. However, I don't think I'd want to read it again. Romance and Faith did not play as big a role in this the second book of the series as it did in the first. Also, the crimes were particularly disturbing.
Kellerman's LAPD Detective Peter Decker is one of my favorite protagonists in the mystery genre.
