This was my first read...

This was my first read of a title from the Decker/Lazarus series and I was definitely engrossed in the story. I also love the fact that although I'm interested to read more titles in the series that I was able to enjoy this novel as a stand-alone story. The couple of Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus momentarily reminded me of J.D. Robb's Lt. Eve Dallas and husband Roarke but emphasis on momentarily. Characterically they can be identified in the same sentence only due to each of the Lieutenant's commitment to solving crimes and their steadfast partners. I eventually tired of Lt. Dallas and Roarke. I can't see myself tiring of Lt. Decker and wife Rina. I don't give spoilers so you'll have to read the novel to identify with my comments. As more and more characters are introduced in this novel through Decker's investigation of a missing woman and a murder on a local construction site, the spider web becomes more intricately woven of how the characters' lives are related. I also liked the build of the missing woman investigation to develop an interesting tie to Decker and his family. I don't know that it would ever be allowed to occur in 'real life' but for me it added more complexity and showed the author's sophisticated writing style in the linking between the professional and personal sides of Decker's life. This novel also provides insight to how thorough police investigations are, how many questions need to be asked to discern timelines and to decipher the relationships of the complicated webs of people's lives and how much time is needed to build cases for prosecution. At the same time it portrays the reality of understanding families of law enforcement personnel and how all of their personal lives are literally interrupted on an ongoing basis. If you like to read mystery and detective novels to match your detective skills and figure out the outcome before the author's reveal, I highly recommend this novel. I want to read more novels in the series!

The Decker/Lazarus Ser...

The Decker/Lazarus Series written by Faye Kellerman is always a good read. Hangman is another fine example. The storyline is fast-pace and keeps you guessing. The characters are believable and always makes you cheer for the good guys and boo at the bad guys.

I'm very fond of the Kellerman family - I've read so many books written by them (Faye Kellerman, Jonathan Kellerman, and now their son, Jesse Kellerman) that I feel like they're part of my family - or at least their characters are. I'm particular fond of Pete Decker and Rina Lazarus and their enormous extended family and I've learned a lot about all kinds of things from reading Ms. Kellerman's books. I especially like how focused these books are on family and on sharing rituals and food - lots and and lots of yummy food. Ms. Kellerman has done a brave thing and let her characters age. Pete Decker is just turning 60, his youngest is off to college, and life's concerns are changing. He still cares about catching the bad guys, but is less likely to charge off by himself. I've enjoyed these characters over the years and it's been good to grow along with their family. I wonder, though, where Ms. Kellerman's going to go from here. Are we going to have a slow fade of Pete and Rina and a focus on other characters (she's certainly introduced some interesting ones)? It'll be interesting to keep reading and find out. This probably isn't her best in the series, but it was pretty excellent and gave me room to stretch and speculate more on the characters and less on the whodunit and I liked that.

I enjoyed this page turner. I am reading this series out of order but I don't care. This is the Decker/Lazarus series, a husband and wife team. The wife isn't really a detective and didn't play that rol this time. This time she was left to concentrate on being a wise mother. There is something comfortable about meeting the detectiuves in another book. You already know a lot about them but it is fun to learn more details. I didn't find anything disappointing in this book. The turn of events were complicated and I never would have guessed that. I really like the minor characters. They add so much to the book. I love Marge who works for Peter Decker.She is a crusty,older woman with a brillant sense of humor. I was sad to see this book end. I would recommend this book to any mystery lover, especially those who love series of books.

A fun thriller with twists and turns. Perfect for a day at the beach.
