Présentation de l'éditeur

The gripping new crime novel in the Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus series from New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman.

Detective Peter Decker and his wife Rina Lazarus have moved from the chaos of L.A. to upstate New York, to a quiet town that is home to elite colleges and pensioners. Semi-retired and faced with mundane call-outs at the Greenbury Police Department, Decker is becoming bored of life. So when he is called about a potential break-in at the local cemetery, he jumps at the opportunity to investigate.

The Bergman crypt contains four intricately designed stained glass windows, one for each season, two of which are confirmed as definitely fake. Along with young Harvard graduate, Tyler McAdams, Decker must solve the mystery of the forgeries. His search leads him to Manhattan, although perhaps he should look closer to home: when a co-ed is brutally murdered at a local colleges, Decker must put his search for the art thief on hold. But not for long…

Quatrième de couverture

As a detective lieutenant with the LAPD, Peter Decker witnessed enough ugliness and chaos for a lifetime. Now, he and his wife Rena are ready to enjoy the quiet beauty of upstate New York, where they can be closer to their family.

But working for the Greenbury Police Department isn't as fulfilling as Decker hoped. Yet just when he thinks he's made a mistake, Decker is called to an actual crime—a possible break-in at the local cemetery.

At first, it seems like a false alarm but soon escalates into murder when a co-ed at an exclusive consortium of liberal-arts colleges is brutally slaughtered. Poking into the hallowed halls of academia to find a killer, Decker is drawn deep into a web of nasty secrets, cold-case crimes, international intrigue, and ruthless people who kill for sport.

Decker will need to use every bit of his keen mind and his thirty years of experience as a homicide cop to stop a callous killer and uncover a cabal so bizarre that it defies logic.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 way too much detail - hard to follow 17 septembre 2014

I have to admit, I love a good Faye or Jonathan Kellerman book. I’ve followed Peter and Rina Decker since the beginning of the series and loved every minute of it. Unfortunately this one just didn’t do it for me.

Actually that’s not true, I was into it right up until the last third of the book. And then it all fell apart.

In this book, Peter has retired from the LAPD and taken a job with a small town police department in upstate NY so they can be closer to their kids who have all moved out to the East Coast.

He takes on a new partner, a spoiled rich kid who went to Harvard and only got on the force because his dad called in a favor with the Mayor. The only good thing is the repartee between them and I wouldn’t mind seeing the kid show up in future books.

Despite his attitude, Peter manages to mentor him and get him to come down off his high horse. But in the middle of ho hum, Greenbury, NY, Decker gets called in to investigate some stolen artwork, which ends up being a bigger deal than they thought, and part of a bigger investigation of stolen Russian artwork. Then, as usual, people start being murdered.

Faye had to do an incredible amount of research for this one, especially on Russian artwork, government deals between countries related to priceless artwork, and all the intricacies regarding well known works of art in general and I give her kudos for all of that work. Sadly, it all went completely over my head. Way too many details that just didn’t make sense to me.

I was also left feeling like they didn’t really resolve anything and that the people responsible were never really brought to justice. There was a lot of alluding to who it was, and that it was “handled” by the Russian government, but there was no real closure for me because it all happened off the page.

I even went back and re-read the last part of the book and I still didn’t really understand what the resolution was and who the true killer was. Peter did a lot of speculating, but nothing was confirmed, at least not outright.

Rina also gets more involved in this one, and despite her fun, snappy comebacks to the men on the case, she ends up having way more say in the investigation than seems realistically plausible, for someone not on the police force. Not to mention she verbally takes on the Russian government…. really?

I will definitely read another Kellerman book (Faye or Jonathan) but let’s hope the next one is way less complicated and has a better resolution.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointed Decker Fan 11 septembre 2014

Not one of Ms Kellerman's better books and I've read all of the Decker series. The location of Greenbury New York being one of them. How can you be in Upstate New York, be 3 hours from Manhattan, 1.5 hours from Boston and be south of Boston at the same time? Just doesn't add up in my opinion. I also had troubles with McAdams' asking for peoples Wi-Fi password so he could use his Ipad. He's rich, he's a detective why would you have a package that includes internet access? And don't all cops, detectives included, carry guns.

I think the editors, if there were any on this book didn't do their job. They should have pointed out the, in my opinion, glaring errors.

I've really liked the Decker books. I just hope the next one, if they is on, is better than this one.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Too many errors! 13 septembre 2014

I loved this book. Faye Kellerman has outdone herself with the plot and new characters. The only disappointment was the price I paid for the e-book, and that I wish it had been a printed book so I could have a red pen on hand to correct all the typos & grammatical errors. Did anyone proofread this book? I've never seen this in any of her other books and it was very distracting as I read. Someone please correct the errors.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Solid installment 2 septembre 2014
Par Shelleyrae - Publié sur Amazon.com

I have missed the last three books in the Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus series, largely because they have been released since I started blogging and my reading time has rarely since been my own, so I jumped at the chance to rejoin the series with Murder 101.

It's been six months since Peter retired from the LAPD and he and Rina are now living in upstate New York, closer to their adult children. Peter is working for the local police force which is rarely troubled by anything more than drunken college students, while Rina has made herself at home within the community. When the body of a young coed is discovered brutally stabbed to death, Decker is the only member of the Greenbury Police with the experience to investigate. He quickly connects the dead woman to a recent theft from a crypt and, teamed with an obnoxious rookie, Tyler McAdams, Decker suddenly finds himself in the midst of a case involving stolen art, Russian assassins and international politics.

I so enjoyed reconnecting with the characters of this series, I love that Kellerman has aged them in 'real time'...it has been 27 years since The Ritual Bath was first published. The children Decker and Rina share, including foster son Gabe, are now grown up and on their own, Decker's old partner Marg has left the LAPD for quieter pastures and Decker and Rina are adjusting to the changes their move has wrought.

In this book Decker is partnered with Tyler McAdams, a Harvard graduate with a silver spoon in his mouth and a chip on his shoulder, who initially drives Peter crazy but eventually, with Decker's gruff guidance, proves useful.

I wouldn't expect anything less from Kellerman than a well crafted mystery which requires shoe leather, rather than luck, to solve. Decker's investigation is all about following leads, face to face interviews and a bit of hard earned cop instinct. The murdered girl is the first homicide to occur in Greenbury in twenty years so it makes sense that Decker is placed in charge, and in his usual bulldog manner, Decker is determined to solve the case even when his life, and Rina's and Tyler's, are threatened.

Murder 101 is another well paced, solid installment in the Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus series, which is likely nearing its conclusion, but proves that Decker isn't quite ready to give up his badge just yet.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Where was the editor? 8 septembre 2014
Par Laura Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com

The author appears painstaking in her details of the many many car trips between upstate New York, Boston, Manhattan, and Long Island but repeatedly gets the times required and directions all wrong. Less than two full days to drive "in" (not "up") from Florida to upstate New York? One hour from RI to upstate?

Also, it really bothers me when men are referred to by last name but women by first. Nicknames aside, it is demeaning. Marge, Rina, Cindy and Nina are treated the same way as the kids, but the adult men are all referred to by full or last name. Kellerman should know better.
