Publisher's Summary

Detective Peter Decker and his wife, Rina Lazarus, risk life and limb to solve a pair of brutal murders that may be tied to a crime from more than 20 years ago in this intense and addictive mystery from New York Times best-selling author Faye Kellerman.

On a quiet suburban street in upstate Greenbury, New York, the brutally beaten body of a young man is discovered in the woods adjacent to an empty vacation home. Twenty-six-year-old Brady Neil a resident of the neighboring town of Hamilton, had no criminal record, few friends, worked full-time, and attended community college. But as detective Peter Decker learns, the clean-cut kid is linked to the criminal world. When Brady was a baby, his father, Brandon Gratz, was convicted of robbing and killing the owners of a local jewelry store. While Gratz and his partner, Kyle Masterson, admitted to the robbery, they swore they left the owners, Glen and Lydia Levine, very much alive. 

The experienced detective knows there’s more to this homicide case than the records show. As he digs into Gratz’s past, Decker begins to suspect that the son’s murder may be connected to the father’s sins. Before he can put together the pieces, Decker finds out that one of Brady Neil’s friends, Joseph Boch - aka Boxer - has gone missing. Heading to Boch’s house with his temporary new partner, Hamilton PD cop Lenora Baccus, they discover a bloodbath.

Who would savagely kill two innocent men - and why? Finding the answers will require all of Decker’s skill and knowledge, the help of his fellow Greenbury detectives, Tyler McAdams and Kevin Butterfield, and information gleaned from his wife Rina’s behind-the-scenes investigation to put all the pieces of this deadly puzzle together... and see justice done.

Great to have Narrator back

I have loved this series since it began. The stories always get you caught up in the intrigue, and the characters are rich and varied. It was frustrating to have the narrator change because none of the characters 'sounded' right, and it impeded my enjoyment of the last few books. I'm delighted to be able to enjoy this story with the original narrator. Thanks for bringing him back.

Mystery solved

Another enjoyable,Who Done It, from Faye Kellerman. A young man is found murdered in Decker's county, but the case leads to the neighboring jurisdiction. The other sheriff seems to have his own agenda when he requests his daughter to be part of Decker's team. Meanwhile, a co-worker is missing, and the victim's father could play a large part in his murder. Not much action, just putting together clues through interviews , evidence, and gut instinct, making it an interesting read.

enjoyable listen but...

A little disjointed compared to other Faye Kellerman novels. Had to rewind a few of the chapters to relisten.

Possibly the Worse Audio I've Ever Listened To ..

Made the mistake of thinking Faye Kellerman might share the talents of John Kellerman, unfortunately it's not even close. The dialogue and writing is so juvenile that the story should be catalogued with "children's" entries. And the narrator sounds like an A/I robot. Buyer beware … !!

I love Decker and Rina!!!

I had been waiting on this book for months. I've read/listened to this series from the beginning. Some were good, some were great and some were just ok but I've stayed with them all. I started with this series because of Jonathan Kellerman and I liked the plug in this book for the Alex Delaware series. 😄 I love Ms. Kellerman's writing and this couple. They love and support each other and have been together for a very long time. And Decker is like a pit bull when he has a case. And adding Harvard to the series when they moved added an interesting new character to the writing. I miss Cindy his daughter sometimes but she had a role in this book too. I really liked the complex characters and guessing the bad guys. Thanks for another good story. Well done and enjoyed each chapter.
