Book Review: ‘The Lost Boys: A Decker/Lazarus Novel’ By Faye Kellerman

The 26th novel featuring Detective/Rabbi Peter Decker and his wife Rina Lazarus, finds two cases on Decker’s plate and Rina helping out and also dealing with their foster son Gabe and his mom wanting to meet. 35 year-old Bertram Lanz, who is disabled, living in a home and rich, goes missing on a group trip. Decker and Tyler are on the case and it may be a kidnapping or he may have just run off with the woman he likes from his previous home. And then a body is found and it turns out it’s from a 10 year old cold case when three college-aged guys went missing. So now he and Tyler have this one as well and when one of the other bodies turn up it could mean that the only one not found could still be alive and could be the murderer. The story is solid but a bit boring at times. The best parts are the bantering between Decker and his partner and the enduring love of Decker and Lazarus. If you’re a fan of this series it will be something to look forward to.

You can pick up The Lost Boys in stores on Tuesday, Janaury 12th from William Morrow.
