For the Deckers, Rina and her detective husband Peter, the vandalising of their synagogue is profoundly shocking. Daubed swastikas testify to a hatred beyond understanding. But Decker soon realises this is not the work of an organised group and, before long, a 17-year-old is in custody, confessing to the mental horrors that drove his actions. Ernesto clearly needs psychiatric help though when his parents opt for a camp specialising in unorthodox wilderness therapy Decker is sceptical. Then all hope is shattered. Ernesto and the camp leader are found murder and the leader's wife has vanished. But the apparent tragic love triangle looks quite different when Dee's body is discovered. Decker realises he has a much more complex case to handle, one that links to hate groups, revolutionary therapists and the twisted world of the ultra-rich who deny any obstacle in the way of their personal gratification - even their children...

This was another wonderful book in the Decker/Lazarus series featuring vandalism against the Temple where Peter and Rina worship; the murder of four people; and a scheme by popular and well known "therapists" to help get the children of their wealthy clients into prime colleges. Mix all of this up with very real, complex and human characters and you have a book that you can't put down.

I finished this book early enough in the evening that I was able to buy the next in the series for my Kindle and began reading immediately. I am absolutely hooked on this series.
I love all the Decker/Lazarus novels and this one was no exception. The characters are always well developed, and the plots are believable unfolding at a steady pace. Personally, I especially enjoy the Judaism woven throughout all the books. I find it all fascinating. While it is not necessary to read the books in order, in fact I originally did not; I have now gone back and am rereading through in order. I believe it improves the experience.
I just love books. Not only are they good for reading, but sometimes they can straighten out an uneven table. Also you can use them in a stack on top of wrinkled papers to straighten them out. Sometimes they just look good on shelves, and can impress your friends. I remember when my kid brother used to sit on top of them in order to reach the dinner table. Ah the good old days...
Ms Kellerman writes a gripping story that sucks you in from the first page. I have now read 4 of her books in this series and everyone of them has been spellbinding. The crimes that she describes are often gruesome and finding who committed them entangles the reader in a large and fascinating web. Detective Decker and his wife Rima are both religious Jews although Peter Decker doesn't know that until he falls in love with Rima, and Ms Kellerman weaves this into the storm in a seamless way. I can't wait to start my next Dexter/Lazarus novel.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as I have all in the Decker/Lazarus series that I have read so far. Faye Kellerman has a unique way of story telling that is suspenseful and entertaining and factual, so it is believable. Looking forward to reading all books in this series. Love both Decker and Rina;s characters as well as Jacob. You can relate to the things he is going thru in his life and the reactions of his parents to it all.
Aklan J. Groveman,,,I have read most of Faye Kellerman's Books. The main character is Lt. of Detectives and jewish convert Peter Decker and his wife, orthodox jewish housewife Rina Lazarus and their newly joined family. They are all good stories and I enjoyed them all. "The Forgotten's premise is about how Decker and Lazarus's Jewish Temple is totally vandalized and what is done to catch the horrible people that did it. a good read!
Rina Lazarus-Decker's synagogue has Brent vandalized. Her husband Lt. Peter Decker's department is assigned to find out who was responsible. A teenager confesses he was guilty, but is there more to it? A hate group. A psychologist husband and wife with hidden agendas. Four murders. A search into the background of a possible Jewish death camp victim.
This novel introduces the reader to criminals and their recent transgressions that are a relative microcosm of an extraordinarily cruel and dehumanizing time in history, the Shoah. I believe Ms. Kellerman has made a well-intentioned effort to make the principle guilty party into a sympathetic individual in an otherwise enjoyable, exciting, action-filled story.
