Author of Sleepers, Lorenzo Carcaterra raves about her; James Ellroy swoons that 'she establishes herself as a unique voice in crime fiction' and her book sales indicate that her ardent public can't get enough. Images pervade of sweaty-palmed crime fiction junkies, greedily stalking through the crowded aisles of book shops and suddenly, after discovering what they are hunting for, with one foul swoop, grab the latest literary tome and rush home eager to begin the next fictional odyssey.
Faye Kellerman has that kind of effect on you. She's compelling, intriguing, brilliant in the art of weaving her magical spell and a fictional alchemist of the highest order. Her plots are complex and premeditated beyond expectation, and her humanity, compassion, voracious criminal appetite and tactile descriptive verve hurl you into their swirling vortex, with no visible means of escape.
Her novels curl and wrap themselves around the trade winds of crime, motive, corruption, Jewish proverbs and history, holy diction and the continuing journey of Detective Sergeant Peter Decker and his beautiful but troubled wife Rina Lazarus.
