A Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus thriller, the unconventional husband and wife team. There is a horrid smell coming from a flat owned by a reclusive, wealthy, 89-year old. Not unusual for the elderly to die alone only this flat also contains a tiger. Wow – a lovely opening to what becomes a complex and nutty case with lots of old favourite characters making an appearance, even the author’s husband’s character, Alex Delaware, has a walk-on part! Great fun. Fans will love it – newcomers can easily start here too.

Synopsis

Predator by Faye Kellerman

The gripping new crime novel in the Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus series from New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman. LAPD Detective Peter Decker is about to face a case that will push him to the limit...Residents in a local building have been complaining of a smell coming from an apartment rented by the eccentric inventor Hobart Penny. Nearly ninety-years-old, and a hermit for the last 25 years, it is not surprising that the reclusive genius has died without anyone's knowledge. However, as Decker steps inside, it's clear that Penny has died from anything but natural causes...Penny's children describe their father as a cruel and vindictive man. His second wife knew a man with strange sexual appetites, while the owner of a Californian animal charity speaks only of a kind-hearted old man. But further searches not only add to the list of suspects, but find evidence of a disturbed, depraved mind. So just who was Hobart Penny? A brilliant inventor, a generous philanthropist or a callous killer?
