I found the story "Blindman's Bluff" rather interesting with the introduction of a blind character who is able to determine descriptions through voice, accents, and other details that those who are not blind might miss.
Rina, who has been selected for a jury (surprising, since Peter is a dective in the LA Police Department) encounters the blind character, and through this meeting, is able to help Peter in the solution of the crime.
Living in Southern California, I find that the descriptions of areas with which I am mostly unfamiliar, become places I now know more about.
Being from an Orthodox Jewish family, I understand the customs and traditions which Peter has learned in this series. These customs and traditions are sometimes difficult for others to comprehend, and Faye Kellerman does an outstanding job of explaining them through Peter's own learning process. I found this interesting, as well as the way Kellerman blends these customs and traditions into the work that Peter does as a police detective.
The plots are well woven, and the conclusions to each case clear, believeable, and sometimes surprising..
I think it would be interesting to be a part of Rina and Peter's lives, and since this is fiction, reading about them is almost like being in that part.
I hope there are more books written in this series.
Blindman's Bluff begins with a multiple homicide--three members of the wealthy Kaffey family, two bodyguards, a maid, and other security personnel are missing. When the police discover that Mr. Kaffey hired ex-convicts for his security (for both altruistic and cost savings reasons), they are able to link the murders to a violent Los Angeles gang. The third strand of the plot is the blind man of the story--a courtroom interpreter that over hears two gang members discussing the crime and by coincidence, asks Rina to describe the gang members to him.
The story evolves around the relationships and rivalries between the various members of the wealthy Kaffey family, and the relationships between the gang members and their communities. As always, Kellerman fills out the plot with personal interactions between Peter, Rina, their family, and Peter's co-workers on the police force.
Blindman's Bluff is an engaging novel; the complexity of the plot and the characters kept and help my attention from beginning to end. I enjoy the involvement of Peter's family, and the details about the personal lives of the other police officers, especially how the characters and their lives have changed and developed over time. In Blindman's Bluff, Faye Kellerman has created an excellent plot with multiple story lines that come together in a cohesive, enjoyable ending--I highly recommend this book, and can't wait for the next!
