The Mercedes Coffin by Faye Kellerman is a Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus novel. Fans of the series will appreciate catching up with the whole family, while LAPD Lt. Decker is required to solve a 15-year-old cold case. A corpse has been found in the trunk of an abandoned car, which provokes new interest in an unsolved case with the same MO, right down to brand of the car. The victim was shot in the head and locked in the trunk of his own Mercedes. Decker cannot find any other connection between the two victims. Is the second murder a copycat, a coincidence, or is the same killer still at large?
