Personally, I highly recommend this entire series.

My commute to and from work has recently been eased by listening to the Audio CD version of Faye Kellerman's "Day of Atonement". This is the 4th book in the series, and while I liked this look into the lives of (now newlywed) Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus, it did not grab me as much as the previous 3. Why not? (Without any spoilers more significant than would be included in a typical cover blurb)

1) The size and/or the pacing. The reading of the book took up 10 full CDs, at an estimated 70 minutes each. I didn't feel there was enough substance to justify a full 10 CDs (or the equivalent page count). I think the book accurately reflected the police process of investigating and tracking down leads - not all of them destined to pan out to anything - but as any honest detective will admit, that process is not as exciting as they make it appear on cop shows.

2) The majority of the book was devoted to tracking down a runaway. Eventually, the characters encountered the more serious crimes that are the basis of most murder mysteries, but the first of those does not occur until well past the ½ point of the book. Perhaps if the crime spree started a bit earlier??

3) Approximately half of the book takes place in the Jewish sections of Brooklyn. Unfortunately, our
narrator, Mitchell Greenberg, was not able to significantly alter his tone of voice to differentiate between the characters who resided in that area, at least not without losing the accent. To me, every local male over the age of 40 sounded just like Jackie Mason - to the point where I wondered if they got Mr. Mason to make an uncredited guest appareance!

4) There was too much tension and not enough affection expressed between our lead characters. Perhaps the author was trying to warn us that this is what happens when you devote your honeymoon to solving a possible crime - a family missing person - instead of more traditional activities. BUT I did not feel the same pull between Peter and Rina in this novel as I did during the first 3 - and not coincidentally, I did not LIKE them as much as I did during the first three books.

Despite all of this, I consider "Day of Atonement" to be a good book. My issue is that the first 3 books in the series were GREAT, so simply "good" is a step in the wrong direction.

The constant descriptions of Rina as a modern day Goddess get very old. After the first 10 times we get the picture. Her stupidity is also annoying, almost as if she has no common sense. Overall the book was good, a fast, easy read but without much tension or apprehension about what's coming next. She has written better books than this one.

I am reading the series in order and this one was the darkest story yet. Peter and Rina are on their honeymoon and an adolescent boy who is a friend of Rina's family, has gone missing. He has linked up with a psychotic killer and, on his own time, Decker pursues the boy in an attempt to save his life before the killer companion turns on him. The action was fast, the story dark and disturbing but very readable. As in all of the books to date, there is a personal element involving Peter and/or Rina and in this one, Peter comes face-to-face with his birth mother who gave him away as an infant. It is all very real and complex.

I highly recommend this series to readers who like a good mystery and characters who feel like friends.

Personally, I highly recommend this entire series. While they do not have to be read in order to be thoroughly enjoyed, my personal preference is to read them in order--something I am going back now and doing although the first few I read from my local library were out of sequence.

A gripping mystery that divides its time between murder and family. An unlikely combination but Kellerman pulls it off. It could do with a little less of the violence but otherwise a totally enjoyable read. Try to put it down - I dare you.

I️ loved being introduced to Peter’s birth family in this book and seeing their relationships evolve. I️ loved the way that Judaism is an integral part of the story.
