From the Back Cover
On a bright and crisp September morning, while walking a woodland trail, Rina Lazarus stumbles upon human remains once buried deep beneath the forest floor. Immediately, she calls her husband, Peter Decker, a former detective lieutenant with the LAPD, now working for the local Greenbury Police.
The body has been interred for years and there is scant physical evidence at the gravesite. As Decker and his partner, Tyler McAdams, investigate further, they realize that they’re most likely dealing with a missing student from the nearby college 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. Short-staffed and with no convenient entrée into the colleges, Decker enlists Rina’s help to act as the eyes and ears of campus gossip. Winding their way through a dangerous labyrinth of steely suspects and untouchable academics, Decker, McAdams, and Rina race to protect their community from a psychopathic killer still in the area—and on the hunt for a fresh victim.

Do I think others should read this book? Of course, especially if you are a Decker/Lazarus devotee. But, please, be prepared. It's like the publisher made a mistake and left out the last chapter--or, at the very least, the epilogue. I'm just really disappointed. If this happens again, or it becomes a pattern, I just won't be able to read these books because of the frustration. And that makes me very sad.
The characters in this novel were astonishingly one-dimensional and forgettable. I kept having to flip back to rediscover who someone was, and some of the most important people received little to no attention early on. Everyone seemed to have done something to someone that they should not have done, but I was unable to figure out what or to whom. It was a very odd and disjointed experience.
I gave this book two stars instead of one because I did not hate it. It read smoothly, even if I could not figure out what was going on, and I always enjoy the lead characters who reappear in all the books. The amount of travel seemed wildly improbable and way faster and more efficient than travel these days, but at that point I had already lost the thread of the plot (if there was one), so the travel seemed like a minor issue.
A note of caution, in case Ms Kellerman and/or her editor read Amazon reviews. I could get very tired of Rina being put in jeopardy. Elizabeth George has lost me as a reader because she is so mean to Barbara Havers, and Peter Robinson came close to losing me because Annie Cabbot kept getting beaten up with such monotonous regularity that it made me wonder why she didn't find a job that would be less painful. Annie has left the Inspector Banks series (maybe she did resign and I missed the book in which that happened, or maybe she was killed in which case I don't want to know about it), so I didn't stop reading Peter Robinson.
I did not read the book that preceded this one in the series, as it got such negative reviews. This novel seems to be faring no better, however, which makes two in a row. Ms Kellerman needs to find her voice again.
