Recommended for: wholeheartedly!
Read in July, 2012 — I own a copy, read count: 1

I have read almost all of the Decker/Lazarus mysteries and I have loved them. This book was no exception. Given that I know the background of the Decker family, the addition of Chris was not new for me. The mystery of the apparent suicide of a teenage boy, his mother's skepticism, and the connection to the private school (and its teachers and students) he attended is detailed with good twists and a great outcome--as others have said, the last part of the book is fantastic.
What did surprise me is the theme of teenage sex--complete with ALL the details--that Kellerman writes about extensively. I was surprised that Kellerman, an Orthodox Jewish woman, would spend so much time here. It doesn't exactly add to the mystery and, to some degree, it detracts from it because of the surprising (although accurate!) descriptions.
True to Kellerman, there are the additional treats of Orthodox Jewish life. Rita's meals ALWAYS make me salivate.
