As a fan of the Decker/Lazurus series, I've read each book more than once so I feel like I know the recurring characters. In Gun Games, Decker seems detached from home, family, and young Gabe who has been entrusted to his and Rina's care. When Gabe's life is threatened, Decker responds quickly but still seems distant from the hospitalized teen, leaving Rina alone to sit with Gabe until Chris arrives.
Chris waits pensively for Gabe to wake up. His usually domineering persona seems diminished by the hospital setting. He's done things for Gabe in the past, such as providing food, clothing, shelter, and other essentials. Now he is giving Gabe something he's never had - a father sitting beside his bed talking and listening to his son. When the nurse tells Chris that he raised Gabe right, I laughed with them.
Marge seems ready for a promotion. Oliver shows little growth. Overall, the team handles the complexity of the minors/adults, multiple suspects, and getting the best possible charges against the teens.
It is interesting to watch how the various parents react when drawn into the situation. Why is it that the children who seem to fear their parents the most (they'll kill me) are usually the ones whose parents know how to turn a mistake into a learning experience?
The focus on high school students seems to point to everything that is bad about today's high schools, even those which are considered the best. The faculty and administration seem clueless.
Not wanting to write a spoiler, I won't recap the plot.Read more ›
It seemed to me that Ms. Kellerman tried using shock value with the use of fowl language sprinkled liberally throughout the book. It was overdone, as was a lot of the dialogue.
Where oh where are the likes of "Ritual Bath" and the several others that followed? I will think twice or three times before I buy another Rina/Peter book.
I had read the previous book when Gabe came to live with the Deckers, but hadn't remembered all the details and it took awhile for Kellerman to put them together for me this time.
Mostly, I missed the characters that I have truly come to enjoy in these novels. While I like the fact that the author moves the characters along in time in each book, this really was Gabe's story, and I guess I'm just not ready to embrace him.
Finally, the coincidences in the book - Gabe's involvement with the kids who Decker is investigating - just seems a little much.
After doing some poking around I was reminded that Faye has co-written one book, a young adult title, with her daughter, Aliza Kellerman.Read more ›

Simply good reading and pretty typical of the author. Always easy reading.Published 2 months ago by pacermanla
I'm a Kellerman fan. She great for fast-paced reading with interesting plots that are not too cerebral. I think her books are generally light, fun reads.Published 3 months ago by Elaine
I keep thinking this series will weaken but in audio it just stays great with Mitch Greenberg as the narrator. Such great characters and suspense.Published 3 months ago by Booklady1
