When someone breaks into the small LA synagogue and defaces and destroys everything, it's especially distressing to both LAPD Lieutenant Peter Decker and his wife Rina, who are founding members of the congregation. Peter's investigation leads to the arrest of 17-year-old Ernesto Golding, the son of a prominent family.
As part of his sentence, Ernesto will undergo counseling and perform community service, as well as attend a local mountain camp run by psychologists Dr. Mervin and Dee Baldwin. Despite his distaste for the boy's actions, Peter feels Ernesto is still redeemable. But then Ernesto and Dr. Baldwin are brutally murdered at the camp. While searching for a motive, Peter realizes that somehow the boy's earlier destruction of the synagogue is the key. Unfortunately, hate is an all-too-common motive for deadly behavior.
The Decker family's ongoing saga continues to be one of the most intriguing suspense series around. No one does it better than Faye Kellerman! (Jul., 384 pp., $7.99) Hardcover published August 2001.
