    Two short stories

    I preferred the first story (Faye Kellerman's) to the second (Jonathan Kellerman's). Short stories don't have a lot of time for character or dramatic plot development. Both use their standard protagonists; the other characters were thin. I assume if there had been enough of a storyline, they would have written books rather than novellas, and that says it all.

    it was okay

    I really liked the lead characters, but I guess I just expected a little more suspense and a better mystery. I like the Kellermans' books, but this one just didn't work for me.

    more from this reviewer

    Um, Okay

    These are rather simple stories that make for some decent reading, but one can find many others more compelling. Two of the previous reviews say, in the exact same words, something that is flat wrong:
    "Take your pick. LAPD Detective Peter Decker steps in to try to solve the crime before one more corpse is found."
    Decker played a very small part in the first story, and I don't remember any mention of him in the second story. Makes you wonder if these early reviewers actually read the book or are just shilling for the publisher.
