New Faye Kellerman as gripping and chilling as expected

The gripping new crime novel in the Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus series from New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman.

On a crisp September morning, Rina Decker stumbles upon human remains once buried deep beneath the forest grounds. She calls her husband, Peter, a former detective lieutenant with the LAPD. Within hours, a beautiful woodland is transformed into a frenetic crime scene.

As Decker and his partner, Tyler McAdams, further investigate, they realise that they’re most likely dealing with a missing student from the Five Colleges of Upstate – a well-respected institution where Rina works.

And when more human remains are found in the same area, Decker and McAdams know this isn’t just a one-off murder case. Winding their way through a dangerous labyrinth of suspects, they race to protect their community from a psychopathic killer still in the area – and on the hunt for a fresh victim.

Born in St. Louis, Faye Kellerman is one of the most highly considered US crime authors. Her first novel, The Ritual Bath (1986) introduced Sgt. Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus. It also won the 1987 Macavity Award for Best First Mystery. Kellerman currently lives in Beverly Hills with her husband and four children.
