Book Review : The Forgotten - Faye Kellerman : Original post 6/1/2009







Kellerman books are richly detailed with the Jewish culture and history . I'm very curious and interested in the Jewish religion so i guess that's why i really enjoy reading her stories.

The Forgotten is about a boy who finds out about his forgotten grandfather and he's deeply disturbed and delving into the mystery comes up with horribly history, murder and deception.

On a scale of 1-10- i give this a 10. It was hard to put down.


The Forgotten






Series: Peter Decker Rina Lazarus

Part: 13


Summary :
Rina Lazarus and her husband, LAPD Homicide Lieutenant Peter Decker, are shocked by an outrage that cuts close to the spiritual heart of their family. Rina's small storefront synagogue has been desecrated with anti-Semitic graffiti and grisly Nazi death camp photographs. The alleged perpetrator is seventeen-year-old Ernesto Golding, a "rich kid" obsessed with haunting suspicions about the origins of his Polish paternal grandfather. Then Ernesto is found brutally murdered, along with his therapist, Dr. Mervin Baldwin, at an exclusive nature camp that caters moneyed, troubled children. For Decker and his wife, unraveling the truth behind Ernesto's violent death becomes more terrifying with each sinister twist. For lethal secrets with roots in the horrors of a past genteration are coming to the surface, propelling Peter and Rina into a ghastly world of ruthless parents and damaged youth -- and toward a dark evil and its ultimate retribution.

Wow! You've been busy, despite your migraine. Hope that's better now. You've reformatted your blog, with tabs.

I've been trying to read up on how to do that, but my eyes started rolling inward...lol...I think it sounds too complicated!
