    1. After receiving an alarming phone call from his half brother Jonathan, Peter Decker and family fly cross country to help solve a missing persons and homicide case in New York In this fourteenth case in the Decker series, Faye Kellerman brings us a multi layer case that includes recurring characters and thrills that make for a fun page turner Peter Decker with the help of the NYPD is asked to look for missing fifteen year old Shaynda Lieber The New York cops think that the homicide could be the w [...]


    2. Sheesh, could the plot have machinations so it could include every character ever mentioned in every other Faye Kellerman novel Enough already with every character suffering sexual abuse.Enough already with the super purity of Rina Enough already My last Faye Kellerman book.


    3. I am a fan of Peter Decker and even though his wife had a bigger part in this I am never really sure why she gets equal billing.Peter is asked to travel to New York to find out why his half brother s brother in law was murdered and where his 15 year old niece has disappeared to Unfortunately when he gets there the highly orthodox Jewish community they are all part of won t talk to him.Having read this out of order it help me understand Chris Donatti somewhat better and the overall story line was [...]


    4. Total Points 96 out of 100 5 starsTaunt psychological thriller that keeps the reader on pins and needles.1 Plot 19 out of 20 PointsThe interwoven stories of various characters mesh with the psychological twists and turns in a thriller that keeps readers guessing Unpredictable, tense drama unfolds in the life of Lt Peter Decker s family, sucking him into an abyss from which there is no real safety net for all the peril Unofficially working a case that involves his barely known half brother, Decke [...]


    5. This was the final book I needed to read in the series and it didn t disappoint This time Peter and Rona are back in New York to help relatives of his half brother, the missing niece and brother in law that was killed I was surprised to see CD back in the picture again, but then remembered this book is much earlier in their relationship which is why it is strained, especially at the end Peter solves the main mystery of what happens to his relatives along with some other twists at the end I am b [...]


    6. UGH the book is probablly great but my library had the abridged version so how do i rate this one 4 stars for Mrs Kellerman 0 stars for my library.


    7. Peter, Rina, and Hannah fly to New York in answer to a frantic call from Peter s brother It seems that Peter s sister in law s brother is dead and her niece missing However, when Peter gets there no one seems to want him Still Peter continues his search because somewhere on the mean streets of New York is a 14 year old girl Finally, in desperation, he turns to the last person in the world he d want to ask for help Despite the grimness of the mystery there is still golden interludes with Peter s [...]


    8. There are than a dozen mystery novels in the Peter Decker Rina Lazarus series by Kellerman I enjoy glimpses of the Jewish faith that is always a part of her stories In this novel Orthodox Judaism, with very strict Chasidic practices, is strongly featured Yet, no one is beyond sin, the Chasidic men turn out to be smugglers, dopers, customers of prostitution, etc.Kellerman s characters, especially the lead couple, are always well presented In this story, a character from her book Justice has a ma [...]


    9. A member of Lt Peter Decker s extended family has been killed in New York City Peter decides to go to New York to lend his expertise His wife, Rina and daughter Hannah travel with him to visit family Peter finds a very complex situation with family loyalties and resentments all tied into one ugly mess.



    10. In Judaism Torah is light and light is God Hell wasn t fire and brimstone and devils and torture Hell was an abyss without sensations, without end This quote towards the end of Stone Kiss is very apt, and testifies that this series of books is than just a detective story On a surface level this is a sublime example of such gripping, fast moving and with a compulsive denouement However, these books are also deeply thoughtful and psychologically complex and Stone Kiss is no exception.I liked the [...]


    11. An older F Kellerman book that I thought for sure I must have read years ago and forgot If I did, lucky me, I get to actually re read a book when I ve got a pile of newer ones awaiting me Peter, Rina and Hannah go to NY to help Peter s half brother Jonathan s in laws when Jonathan s wife s brother turns up dead and her niece turns up missing In an effort to help the grieving extended family navigate through the police and murder, Peter finds himself involved with a darker side of New York and th [...]


    12. Well, Faye Kellerman is somewhat of a magician in the way she is able pull the reader into the tension of a complicated and brutal story then provide relief with the domestic side of Lieutenant Detective Peter Decker and his family I actually do not enjoy reading about brutality, but I read anyway because I am committed to the main characters In this book relatives are caught up in brutal attacks and it challenges Decker to his very core to identify the bad guys with the help of the baddest guy [...]








    13. THIS SUMMARY REVIEW WAS COPIED FROM OTHER SOURCES AND IS USED ONLY AS A REMINDER OF WHAT THE BOOK WAS ABOUT FOR MY PERSONAL INTEREST ANY PERSONAL NOTATIONS ARE FOR MY RECOLLECTION ONLYMaybe not her bestbut I think it is her best in the last few.Total Points 96 out of 100 5 starsTaunt psychological thriller that keeps the reader on pins and needles.1 Plot 19 out of 20 PointsThe interwoven stories of various characters mesh with the psychological twists and turns in a thriller that keeps readers g [...]


    14. I just loved this book and it s because of Chris Donatti Is something wrong with me He s a psycho but his character brings so much to the story By any means necessary seems to be his thought He returns from a previous book that I thought he brought a lot of flair to also He makes the story a nail biter because with him he s so unpredictable you never which the way the wind will blow His relationship with the Decker s keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what will happen next.


    15. One of Faye s weaker confusing plots, heavy on JudaismWith than a dozen entries in the Peter Decker Rina Lazarus series, certainly each new book by Faye Kellerman is anxiously awaited by her fans We have learned to tolerate a good deal of discussion promotion of the Jewish faith as part of her stories because we love her characters, especially the lead couple, and the suspenseful mysteries which normally surround them However, Stone Kiss left us a little cold on two fronts.First, the illuminati [...]


    16. Stone Kiss by Faye Kellerman is a Jewish murder mystery I enjoyed it FYI, I am an Orthodox Jew but not a Haredi Black Hat so I understand the conflict in the novel but unless you are Jewish, I m not sure who else would understand it You might get the wrong impression.This is another murder mystery in the series of Peter Decker Los Angeles detective and Rina Lazarus Orthodox Jewish woman as they make their marriage work while trying to solve crimes.The story A member of the family in New York is [...]


    17. This was my first Faye Kellerman mystery although I have read Jonathan Kellerman forever Unfortunately this might be my last of hers This is a good story with some good characters but it sort of left me cold.It s one of the Peter Decker Rina Lazarus series, and Peter and Rina are the really well drawn characters I did care what happened to them as I was reading, but with some of the others I just couldn t care less.One of the best things about this novel is that it gave me a peek into a culture [...]


    18. Apparently this is Book 14 in a series of books staring Lieutenant Peter Decker and his wife It started off really good A Jewish man is found naked and murdered in a sleezy New York Motel Room He was supposed to be spending the day with his 15 year old niece, who is now missing Peter Decker, resident of LA is called in, by his half brother to help solve the crime and find the girl Most of the characters are Jewish and it s full of info on the Jewish religion and culture I didn t really think it [...]


    19. Let me start by saying this is definitely not one of of the best of the Peter Decker Rina Lazarus mysteries by Faye Kellerman Stone Kiss is the fourteenth of the series and builds on a character from Justice, an earlier novel featuring a colorful character named Chris Donatti I recently decided to reread the books involving this complex character and his love hate relationship with Peter Decker So I won t recommend this as a starting point for anyone just starting the series I recommend starting [...]


    20. This is the 14th in the Decker Lazarus series and I really enjoyed this one Having read the whole series I have found some of the series a bit lacking but overall I have enjoyed them This was one of the better ones.Back Cover Blurb It was the stunned, pale look of bad news The call is brief, but to the point There has been a murder in the family of Lieutenant Decker s half brother, Rabbi Jonathan Levine His brother in law, Ephraim Lieber, a Hassidic Jew and former drug addict, was found naked in [...]


    21. This may have been my first Peter Decker series book I cannot remember reading others, but maybe they just were not as outstanding as this story The plot, the characters and how Faye Kellerman wove them all together to get a story that was good, no great is amazing The characters not only have depth, but have so many twists to their persona Just when I thought I had one of the characters figured out, there was a twist and I was caught off guard, surprised and intrigued with the character all ove [...]


    22. Diamo a questo 14esimo episodio un 2 stelline e prendiamoci una pausa.Peter e Rina sono di nuovo a New York, di nuovo coinvolti dal parentado ultra religioso e di nuovo alle prese con una vecchia conoscenza di Peter e dei lettori affezionati.Questa avventura pare piu confusa delle altre, spesso i personaggi pensano in prima persona e non riusciamo a capire chi sia il soggetto del pensare Il mondo appare composto di persone stupide e la comunita ultra ortodossa appare assai poco etica Nell insiem [...]


    23. Both Kellermans have great characters I like them both for different reasons Stone Kiss is similar to another Faye Kellerman book I have read or I read this one before, but long enough ago that I don t remember the details of the story Decker is called to NYC to help solve the murder of a relative One of the many things I like about THIS Kellerman is the details of Jewish life that she provides In this case, we are knee deep in Chassidic culture, while partially immersed in the life of a Conserv [...]
