As a Sherlock Holmes fan for almost a half century, I have to say that this is as good as any story Conan Doyle told -- BRAVO!!
Because it is very thin... the plot is thin, the characters are thin, the police procedures are questionable at best. A good tutorial on Judaism, though. Imagine a plot where a family is missing and no hint of foul play -- Decker and his partner decide to go into the LA foothills and happen to stumble (in the rain, even) on two buried bodies. Come on! Even if the foothills were only 2 or 3 acres this is improbable. Then the scene shifts to Israel (again, thin) and Decker saves that country from bombs and financial chaos. I have never imagined Jonathon Kellerman's character Milo Sturgis as being thin but this authors interjection of Sturgis into this story was thin!!! Obviously, I do not recommend Faye Kellerman's stuff.
The story kept me on the edge of my seat. Been a Stuart Woods fan for a long time -- this was the best.
