I'm really enjoying reading through the Decker/Lazarus series. In this one, Decker and Rina have just married, but their honeymoon is far from ordinary. They go to New York to visit with some of Rina's family and suddenly Decker is involved with a family crisis involving a missing teenage boy and a possible psychopath. I love the blend of the relationship between Decker and Rina that continues to develop and the actual thrill of the chase as Decker hunts down the bad guy. Rina asserts herself and want to help out and even tote a gun, to which Decker does not react well. Yet having Rina along may be a lot better idea than he thought. And the stuff about the Jewish culture/religion that comes out in these books is really fascinating. Highly recommended for fans of gritty mysteries and good relationship stories.
