Faye Kellerman's series with Rina Lazarus and Peter Decker is one of my favorites. She's already written a lot of them, and I'm worried that the series will have to eventually play itself out!!
This one is right up there w her best -- and the narrator is good, too. It's a gripping,can't-put-it-down plot with her well-known excellent character development. I recommend trying her at least once and see if you don't agree.

The novel is a gem (worthy of at least four stars) but the narrator struggles with Hebrew--his gutteral /kh/ works only a parody; his Yiddish is incomprehensible at best, outrageously wrong at worst; his rendition of Jewish-American colloquial English is not much better. This audiobook is all but unlistenable by at least a significant subset of Kellerman's target audience. Were it, say, French or Spanish that was so mangled, the publisher would never have released this vocal shambles. Recommended only to those with a stone ear.
