4 out of 5 stars 70 ratings


Work, home, and worlds collide when LAPD lieutenant Peter Decker and his Orthodox Jewish wife, Rina Lazarus, team up to investigate crimes.

LAPD’s Peter Decker and his wife, Rina Lazarus, present a fascinating contrast between Orthodox Jewish culture and big-city dangers when they join forces to solve sordid and violent crimes. Listeners will glimpse the tranquility and grace of their close-knit community and its ancient traditions, and also hear about the worlds of prostitutes, child pornographers, and kinky killers.

“Mitch Greenberg is an excellent reader - he captures nuances of voices and conversational rhythms,” praises one listener among the narrator’s legions of fans. His performance brings Rina Lazarus to life in equal force to detective Peter Decker, and conveys the charming interactions between husband and wife. He delivers accurate Yiddish and Hebrew pronunciations and spot-on local accents, while keeping the suspense and tension mounting.

New York Times best selling-author Faye Kellerman has been hailed as a “master of mystery” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) and honored with a Macavity Award. Beyond her Decker / Lazarus mysteries, she is the author of historical thrillers and a short story anthology. She has also penned two novels with her husband, New York Times best-selling author Jonathan Kellerman, and coauthored a YA novel with her daughter, Aliza.
