Murder 101 by Faye Kellerman
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Peter Decker and his wife Rina Lazarus are slowing down. They are looking forward to retirement and have moved north to upstate New York. Life is a little dull after LA, but not for long. Naturally they get called in to help in a case of art theft that turns into murder. Bound up in old feuds between Russia and America over Leonardo Da Vinci paintings and the famous Amber Room, this is unusual territory for Decker to be in. It’s got its usual Jewish family insight with added interest in a conflict between a young graduate on temporary assignment to partner Decker, making for an original side plot. With lots of action, twists and turns, it is certainly up to standard.

Synopsis

Murder 101 by Faye Kellerman

The gripping new crime novel in the Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus series from New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman. Detective Peter Decker and his wife Rina Lazarus have moved from the chaos of L.A. to upstate New York, to a quiet town that is home to elite colleges and pensioners. Semi-retired and faced with mundane call-outs at the Greenbury Police Department, Decker is becoming bored of life. So when he is called about a potential break-in at the local cemetery, he jumps at the opportunity to investigate. The Bergman crypt contains four intricately designed stained glass windows, one for each season, two of which are confirmed as definitely fake. Along with young Harvard graduate, Tyler McAdams, Decker must solve the mystery of the forgeries. His search leads him to Manhattan, although perhaps he should look closer to home: when a co-ed is brutally murdered at a local colleges, Decker must put his search for the art thief on hold. But not for long...
