Love is serious business in Faye Kellerman's murder mysteries, starring sleuthing couple Rina Lazarus and Peter Decker. Kellerman spices her hardboiled crime stories with issues involving modern Judaism (Rina is Orthodox), putting a unique spin on the mystery genre in both this series and two separate but similarly successful novels, Moon Music and The Quality of Mercy.

Double Indemnity
by James M. Cain
Cain's classic noir is at the top of Kellerman's hit list, along with more obvious picks (husband Jonathan, perhaps?). Of Cain, Kellerman rhapsodizes in a publisher's interview, "I absolutely adore [him]. He wrote a very dark vision of America and he was very terse and specific in his words. I think he was just brilliant."

Moon Music
by Faye Kellerman
In Kellerman's second departure from the Decker/Lazarus books, she incorporates Native American traditions and medieval folk legends as part of a Las Vegas murder investigation. Our own reviewer wrote, "[it's] not only the best book she's ever written, it's also one of this year's most unique and riveting reads."
