First, let me get a pet peeve off of my chest regarding this author. It seems that in almost every book she has some personal bias against others yet at the same time she wants the reader to believe that she has all the answers to to the eternal questions of every countries standing against the Holocaust.In this book there comes a point where she has the main character (Rina) speaking about Poland's part during the Holocaust. I should say the Polish peoples part in the Holocaust. Not the Germans who invaded Poland.
Ms. Kellerman states that the Polish people basically rolled over and joined the Germans terror of the Jews. This is not true. I am a descendant of a family that lost a four people in my immediate to the Nazis.
My grandmother and her mother escaped to Switzerland during the Holocaust. My grandmother lost her father and three brothers in the Holocaust. They were Polish Catholics. Her brothers died fighting the Germans. Her father died in a concentration camp in Germany.
Let's not forget that many other non-Jews gave thier lives to fight Hitler also.
O.K. this book was much better than the last one. It did run on a bit with the differing plots and such. I thought having the killers involved in racism and the SAT scandal was a bit over the top. All in all, aside from my personal pet peeve which brought the story down alot for me personally, I would give it a C. I would also like to add that I really enjoy learning about the Jewish religion. It is fascinating to me. I also wished there was more of a story with Peter and Rina's home life. I love to read about that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up with the best of them April 25 2003
Format:Paperback
Faye Kellerman is definitely the No 1-crime fiction writer of today, and ranks up there with the best novelists of police and crime thrillers.
She has not in any way lost any of her talent for keeping the reader glued to the book, and opening up a world of intrigue and mystery.
This book proves Kellerman's skill at moving skillfully from the homely to the horrific, from warmth to horror, from heroic to diabolical.
In an age where the hideous anti-Semitism is on the rise again, in measure never seen since the fall of Nazi Germany, the story begins with the hideous desecration of Peter and Rina's local synagogue, through the world of shady White Supremacist type groups, teenagers corrupted into insanity by their parents, whose own 60's radicalism, in my opinion, was the root of all the evil, drugs, bizarre sex rituals and murder.
Of course Peter and his teams determination and Rina's sanity and compassion helps restore truth and balance. Rina's rebellious son Jacob plays a big role in bringing this one to being solved.
On the downside I would have liked to see some of Cindy , and Marge's stepdaughter Vega.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MATTER OF FAITH...SUSPENSE Oct. 5 2002
Format:Paperback
Rina's store front synagogue is vandalized with paint and litered with pictures of Nazi death camp victims. Hate crimes are investigated so Peter checks in. They are surprised to find out it was done by a classmate of their son, Jacob. That boy is Jewish, too, so what was his motive? As Peter digs into background, he finds many interesting facts plus a few dead bodies. He also becomes acquainted with the Doctors Baldwin of psychology: the husband runs an out door camp (tough-love makes big bucks easy) while the wife builds up a big-success reputation by mentoring boys in SAT tests and getting them admitted to top universaries. Is there anything wrong with what they are doing? This story is defined by the Jewish family life, the adolescent troubles of teen-age boys in school and social growth, the relationship and trust between son and step-father, and how it relates to previous generations.Sound dull? Not by Kellerman! She weaves all these things into a good tale full of suspense and mystery. Someone has to pay for the crimes and they do. A good read as usual by this author.

2.0 out of 5 stars Faye, where have you gone? Aug. 9 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I remember there was a time where I actually said to myself, "Faye Kellerman writes better than her husband." Not that Jonathan Kellerman was ever bad, I just thought that Faye had a bit of a better style. Suffice it to say, something's happened. Mr. Kellerman's books have been absolutely incredible reads (I can't snatch his books up or finish them fast enough), while Faye's have just been not up to their usual standards. I noticed the difference after Jupiter's Bones, and it really became apparent after Stalker. Nevertheless, I still got excited with I saw The Forgotten in the store and snatched it right up.
The first third of this book is pretty bad. Does Faye have some apprentice she's letting write part of these books? It sure seems like it! I don't have the book in front of me, but if I did, I would have to make note of some of the truly bad lines that were in here. I was stupefied! After the first third of the book, the writing style suddenly got better, although the plot remained pretty much stale. I was totally unimpressed with the character of Ruby Ranger who was just disgusting and vile, but had nothing else. I guess cardboard is a good word for her. A totally unconvincing character. And the villain had a somewhat interesting motivation, but was overall not developed well. The ending of this book was totally unsatisfying. I won't ruin it for anyone else, but it was pretty much dumb.
And another thing. I have no connection at all to the Jewish culture, but liked reading about it courtesy of Faye Kellerman, but I have to say that the whole victim thing is now quite tiring. In a world where the conflict in the Middle East has been brought to the American doorstep, it's quite annoying to hear about Jews as victims victims victims.
