Publisher's Summary

LAPD Detective Peter Decker doesn’t know quite what to make of Lilah Brecht. The beautiful, eccentric spa owner and daughter of a faded Hollywood legend, Lilah was beaten, robbed, and raped in her own home - and claims to have psychic powers that enable her to see even more devastating events looming on the horizon. With his heart and mind on his pregnant young wife, Rina Lazarus, at home, Peter finds it hard to put much credence in the victim’s outrageous claims, or to become too deeply involved with her equally odd brothers and aging film star mom. But when Lilah’s dark visions turn frighteningly real, Decker’s world will be severely rocked - as the “false prophet’s” secrets and obsessions entrap the dedicated policeman... and point a killer toward Decker’s own vulnerable family.

Solve another case with Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus.

    "Confusing Finish"

    I found the end of this book a little confusing because I - put it down for a few days, then forgot who was who when I picked it up again.

    Nevertheless I love the series, but after 5 books in a row I need a break.

    Story
    "No tantrums but an unsatisfactory ending"

    Decker finally learned to behave. Rina . and the boys are enjoying his home and are melding the four of them into a family.

    The wrongdoing characters, on the other hand are bizarre beyond belief. Having said that, their antics are amusing and the explanation of the crime supports the development of the weirdness.

    I am, however, a Pollyanna and would have liked the guilty parties to receive their comeuppance. I suppose some of them do -- but not the ones who annoyed me most.

    "Disappointing Ending"

    It was a slow start, but it ended too much too quickly. It made for a disappointing ending. This is one of the few Peter Decker books I won't revisit.

    Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.

    Story
    "getting to know Marge Dunn"

    Ms Kellerman is a master at driving the story with both the professional lives of her main characters along with the personal lives of the family. I continue to enthrall in the exposure to the world of Jewish Orthodoxy, and I think that even when the mystery itself doesn't capture my attention the characters still do. Plus this fifth novel in the series lets us explore the partnership between Peter and Marge more than in any of the previous books.

    "Can't even finish the listen.."
    What disappointed you about False Prophet?

    I am half-way through the first download and I can't listen to more. I have NEVER stopped a book in the middle; I give authors a chance to improve. The plot is uninteresting and is full of a lot of nonsense detail. The characters are not interesting. The read is terrible. Yesterday, I pulled the plug, put the iPod in the armrest and turned on the radio.

    Save your time.


    What could Faye Kellerman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Started with something more interesting than a beating.. of a rich, simpering you-know-what.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His alternate voices are almost funny - like someone telling a joke.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very much disappointment. I have only read Faye before, in a pinch, but the listen is not up to Audible standards.


    Any additional comments?

    May I have my credit back?
