Prayers for the DeadBy Faye Kellerman

Summary :

The brutal murder of Dr. Azor Sparks in an alley behind a restaurant is greeted with public outrage and a demand for swift, sure justice. But the investigation into the well-known surgeon’s death is raising too many questions and providing too few answers for homicide detective Lieutenant Peter Decker. Why, for example, would the family of a man so beloved respond to his slaying with more surprise than grief? And what linked a celebrated doctor with strict fundamentalist beliefs to a gang of outlaw bikers? But the most unsettling connection of all is the one that ties the tormented Sparks family to Peter Decker’s own — and the secrets shared by a renegade Catholic priest…and Decker’s wife, Rina Lazarus.

Original title: Prayers for the Dead
Original languages: English

Azor Sparks, a well known heart surgeon is found brutally murdered.  Azors 6 adult children, his biker buddies and his research team are under suspicion.  Twists and turns and a surprising end makes this a very entertaining story.
On a scale of 1-10 i would give this a 9.  Due to some parts were a little drawn out but gave the story more depth.

Justice by Faye Kellerman

Justice (1995) [Novel]
by Faye Kellerman

Rating: No votes (Rate!)
Reviews: None (show them) Review!

Series: Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus
Part: 8

Summary :
The cruel and bizarre slaying of a beautiful teen leads Detective Decker into the dark heart of an exotic subculture: the seamy, sometimes violent world of Southern California’s rootless, affluent youth. But even the confession of a disturbed kid with cold “killer eyes” cannot soothe Decker’s inner torment. For he knows in his gut this crime goes much deeper and higher than anyone expects — and that true justice, brutal and complete, has yet to be done.

I really enjoyed te love story between Chris and Terry. As always , Kellerman does a terrific job with details and she must do alot of research .  Rina didn’t play a huge part in this one, just the loving doting wife of an overworked, dedicated detective.

So on a scale of 1-10 , 1 being the worst and 10 awesome, i would give this one a 9. So next up is Prayers for the Dead!
