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.

Meet Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus in this first installment of the series, which finds Lazarus calling in a rape to her future husband. It's the beginning of a long, productive friendship forged under terrible circumstances.
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."
