** spoiler alert ** Faye Kellerman needs to spend more time on rewrites and perhaps less time helping her adult children launch their own literary careers.

In the latest entry in the Rina Lazarus/Peter Decker series, Pete is investigating a multiple homicide involving members of a prominent wealthy family, and Rina gets drawn in by a chance conversation in the hallway of the courthouse where she is on jury duty. Her coincidental involvement in the case is a bit of a stretch, but by now we are used to this cop's wife being pulled into his job.

This book had a number of poorly written sentences where the word choices just made no sense, typos, and one continuity mistake (at one point the East Coast brother of one of the murder victims is "working on case law" at a university, later on in the book he is working at a law firm).

The bad guys here are family members who turned against one another in a corporate wrongdoing plot reminiscent of Enron and the Madoffs. There is a tacked-on, wildly implausible happy ending.

Ms. Kellerman needs an editor who will actually edit her manuscripts, or at least say no when one is a stinker.
