Quotes & Awards

  • “A double-barrel mystery…Crisp plotting; some fetching false leads.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “Mitchell Greenberg narrates at a steady pace with subtle characterizations. His gravelly voice draws listeners into the circuitous plot…Greenberg’s evenly paced reading becomes more emotional as the plot twists and turns.”

    AudioFile

  • “The importance of family—or at least nonpsycho family—is front and center in Kellerman’s latest Decker/Lazarus mystery. The evolution of characters and relationships have been a key factor in the continuing success of this long-running series by adding realism to the clever mystery plots. At times heart-breaking and chilling…a most excellent read.”

    " The last few Faye Kellerman books I've read have been somewhat disappointing... more procedural and less of what I really love, which is the interaction of all the characters that make up the story. In this new entry into the series, however, Kellerman returns to the format that made me start reading her novels in the first place -- lots and lots of interaction between Peter and Rina and the kids, along with the new addition of Gabe Donatti. I knew I vaguely remembered the Donatti family from previous novels, but I didn't remember a lot of detail from those stories. However, it wasn't really needed... Kellerman filled in the gaps that I didn't remember and then built on that story, while also investigating a side story. I'll admit that at times, since I was listening to the audiobook, I zoned out a little when it came to details about the two investigations, so I probably missed a detail or two... but that didn't really change my enjoyment of the novel. Also as a comment to the audiobook production... the different sections of the story didn't really have a pause between them, so it was easy to get confused when one second Peter was talking to Gabe and then a few minutes later I'd realize, belatedly, that that paragraph had ended and now Oliver was questioning a suspect. It wasn't horrible, it was just a little confusing and, if I remember right, it's something that I've noticed in several Faye Kellerman audiobooks. Gripes aside, I really did enjoy this entry into the series, especially with Cindy's revelation (and isn't it about time for another book from her point of view???). Now I'm glad that Kellerman is continuing to write about these characters and I look forward to reading the next installment in the series. "

    " None of Faye Kellerman's books are great literature. I don't think she ever meant them to be. The Rina Lazarus/Peter Decker novels are all very entertaining murder mysteries. The backdrop of a modern orthodox family, which is also a family of modern structure (stepchildren, ex-spouses, adoptions, etc.) is so recognizable and easy to relate to, that I feel like I know them personally. I love this series. I would never miss one book with these characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 2/4/2014

    " Another good Peter Decker. This time he has 2 mysteries to solve. A mother has disappeared. The husband is a hit man and their son is now staying with the Deckers. And, 2 nurses have been murdered. Great read. Just sit back and enjoy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice Reisman | 1/10/2014

    " This book has some twists and turns that you don't see coming. Not the most exciting book I've read, but it is a good read. "
