Publisher's Summary

The brutal murder of Dr. Azor Sparks in an alley behind a restaurant is greeted with public outrage and a demand for swift, sure justice. But the investigation into the well-known surgeon's death is raising too many questions and providing too few answers for homicide detective Lieutenant Peter Decker.
Why, for example, would the family of a man so beloved respond to his slaying with more surprise than grief? And what linked a celebrated doctor with strict fundamentalist beliefs to a gang of outlaw bikers? But the most unsettling connection of all is the one that ties the tormented Sparks family to Peter Decker's own - and the secrets shared by a renegade Catholic priest... and Decker's wife, Rina Lazarus.
Solve another case with Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus.

Dated!

When you find a series you like, after a while a new installment feels like catching up with old friends. I always want to know what Peter and Rina are up to and I think I would enjoy a whole book with just a development in their story.

Having said that, I did not care for this episode. It was so incredibly dated, and I think was trying to be shocking with no substance - therefore was just salacious instead of suspenseful.

Wonderful Mystery Series

Mysteries are my favorite genre, & there are many types. You can find edgy, eerie, spy type, vampires, & even humorous, & I enjoy them all. This series by Faye Kellerman has so much to offer, but always grounded by Peter Decker & his wife, Rina. Each novel continues with the family growing up & facing new challenges. Decker with his same crew of LA detectives take you through the process of finding the "bad guy" as they each give their thought-processes to finally arrive with a satisfying conclusion to the mystery. In addition, I find the lifestyle of the Decker Jewish family very interesting & informational to a "goya" like me. This isn't a "on the edge of your seat" book, but so interesting with lots of twists & turns.
