Overview

Peter Decker of the LAPD never dreamed he'd be spending his honeymoon with his new wife, Rina Lazarus, in an Orthodox Jewish enclave in Brooklyn, New York—or that a terrible event would end it so abruptly. But a boy has vanished from the midst of this close-knit religious community, a troubled youth fleeing the tight bonds and strictures he felt were strangling him.

The runaway, Noam, is not traveling alone. A killer has taken him under his wing to introduce Noam to a savage world of blood and terror. And now Decker must find them both somewhere in America before a psychopath ends the life of a confused and frightened youngster whose only sin was to want something more."Kellerman is splendid."

I'm 50 pages in and bored. There is no crime, no mystery, no drama. Just family problems and a Jewish holiday. Liked the 3 boks before this in the series, but Kellerman fell in love with talking about her characters and forgot her genre. For 7.99, I deserve to be interested by the 50 page mark. Skip this one.

I'm really enjoying reading through the Decker/Lazarus series. In this one, Decker and Rina have just married, but their honeymoon is far from ordinary. They go to New York to visit with some of Rina's family and suddenly Decker is involved with a family crisis involving a missing teenage boy and a possible psychopath. I love the blend of the relationship between Decker and Rina that continues to develop and the actual thrill of the chase as Decker hunts down the bad guy. Rina asserts herself and want to help out and even tote a gun, to which Decker does not react well. Yet having Rina along may be a lot better idea than he thought. And the stuff about the Jewish culture/religion that comes out in these books is really fascinating. Highly reccomended for fans of gritty mysteries and good relationship stories.

The only problem I had with this book it should have started with Decker and then Switched! So yes read it all ! It’s very suspenseful! I skipped the first chapter to get to Peter then I had to go back and read the first part!
