Rina Lazarus has some shocking news for her husband, LAPD Lieutenant Peter Decker. A horrible murder has occurred in the family of his half-brother, Rabbi Jonathan Levin. The rabbi's brother-in-law was found slain in a seedy hotel room in upper Manhattan, and the victim's 15-year-old niece, with whom he was spending the day, is missing. Decker, with Rina at his side, immediately heads out to New York to assist in the investigation. But what starts out as simple inquiries soon evolves into a twisted and perilous journey -- from the darkened slums of New Jersey and the deserted industrial streets of New York to the recesses of sexual perversity and the hidden meeting places of Hasidic outcasts. Thrust into a deadly maze of deceit, lies, and danger, the couple can no longer trust anyone -- friend or family. And when salvation is finally within Decker's grasp, it can only be delivered by a depraved lone wolf, hell-bent on his own personal vengeance. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “Raw. Brutal. Ugly. And, of course, riveting. L.A. homicide detective Peter Decker, an orthodox Jew, answers a call for help from his half-brother, Jonathan, in this 14th tale from bestseller Kellerman…Amid the wreckage of lives taken or thrown away, Kellerman’s heroes find glimmers of hope and enough moral ambiguity to make even her most evil villain look less than totally black.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “When Peter Decker’s half-brother, Jonathan, calls with the news that his brother-in-law has been murdered and his niece is missing, everything starts to go wrong. Rina and Peter Decker travel to New York City to solve these mysteries. Dennis Boutsikaris twists and weaves through a world of religious Jews and not-so-honest New Yorkers, never skipping a beat. With a practiced air, he nimbly switches between credible accents and recognizable pronunciations of Hebrew and Yiddish words. As the action heats up, the Deckers capably deal with murder, psychopaths, and angry family.”

    AudioFile

  • “Kellerman ratchets up the action as Decker and Donatti alternately try to outsmart one another and punch each other out. High-voltage stuff about family ties and righting old wrongs.”

    Booklist

  • “Bravura storytelling.”  

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A USA Today Bestseller

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hal Smith | 5/30/2017

    " Overall, the book was quite good. Of course the reader is one of my favorites. I really didn't like the part where a female reader was interjected. Really a distraction, and fouled up the rhythm of things. Otherwise it would have been a four to me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debi | 2/17/2014

    " I like the Peter/Rina Decker series by Kellerman. I've read all of them that are out in paperback, and I'd rate them all 3 or 4. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 2/9/2014

    " Peter Decker is a Lieutenent from LA, in NYC, to help find his half-brother's brother-in-law's murderer and missing niece. Eventually, he has to work with Chris Donatti, a mobster/gangster who is a pathologic murderer and even more! But, it turns out that Chris actually has a soul and isn't all bad. The writing was good but at times I was confused as to who/what -- esp when it seemed as if words or paragraphs or large sections had been omitted -- we'd be in someone's house, talking, eg, and the next paragraph had us driving down some dark road -- but, the ending was sad enough, actually, the entire story was sort of sad, or even worse -- it seemed "empty" at times. I would not recommend it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tommye Schoenberger | 2/7/2014

    " I liked it. I would've liked to read it straight through but I didn't have the opportunity. I was guessing until the last paragraph. I for one, enjoyed it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gail Fiorini | 2/4/2014

    " I keep getting my Kellermans mixed up and getting these Peter Decker books. The view into Judism is far more interesting than the thin plots--this one drugs and a nemesis. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 1/27/2014

    " LANGUAGE!!!!!!!! Too bad about the language because the story is a good one. Peter Decker who is a police detective in LA goes to NY city to help his family solve a murder of one perwson and a disappearance of a teenager.What he finds is a snake pit of family secrets. He finds people he thinks he can trust but can't and others who shouldn't be trustworthy are actual help him. "

    " A little dragged out in parts, but overall really good. Bad guy Donatti was back and sexier as ever. "

    " Keep me on edge - did not figure out the ending on my own! "

    " ok for a "car" book :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evelyn | 11/11/2013

    " Stone Kiss was another excellent novel about Peter and Rina. It was a fast paced, page turner and real "who done it". I couldn't put this book down. I know it's an older novel 2002 but somehow I missed it the first time around. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 JayJayJay | 9/1/2013

    " This was my first Faye Kellerman book. It took me a while to get interested in it. I thought the plot was thin and the only interesting character was CD. "

    " This was a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Hilton | 3/26/2013

    " This is a good read, a sequel to "Justice." I'm guessing that there's a sequel to this one, as the bad guy lived to commit crime another day. The plot gets overly complicated in the middle, but it gets sorted out somewhat believably at the finish. "
