|Latest Decker/Lazarus Novel by Faye Kellerman|
I just finished reading the latest Faye Kellerman novel starring the team of Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus. Bone Box is the 24th book in the series which Kellerman began in 1986.
Peter Decker, an LAPD homicide detective and his keen-witted beautiful wife, Rina Lazarus, have dazzled mystery fans as a riveting investigative duo for over 30 years. Through most of the series the action takes place in Los Angeles. By the last 3 or 4 books, Peter has semi-retired and taken a job as a detective in a small Upstate New York area. The town may be small, but it has its share of crimes to solve and keeps Peter and his partner, Tyler McAdams busy enough.
Synopsis of Bone Box
One September morning, Rina takes a walk in the nearby woods and stumbles upon human remains once buried deep in the forest. Naturally, she immediately calls her husband, Peter, at the local Greenbury Police Department. They discover that the skeleton is that of a young man who has been buried for at least ten years, thus there is almost no physical evidence at the gravesite. With further investigation, Decker and his partner, Tyler McAdams soon realize they are probably dealing with a missing student from the nearby Five Colleges of Upstate.
It's not long before more human remains are found in the same area. The rest of the bodies all appear to be college age women and the investigators suspect they will match up with some missing women from the colleges. Decker and McAdams, along with Rina’s help, find a number of suspects among the academics at the colleges and it becomes increasingly apparent that the killer is still around.
This police mystery fiction story starring Peter and Rina, with a few side stories of their family and friends from earlier books, will thrill all Decker/Lazarus fans.
Author Faye Kellerman
Faye Kellerman and her family are practicing Orthodox Jews and Faye's writing often deals with Jewish themes and characters, incorporating them into the framework of the traditional mystery. I have found this fascinating.
