The Forgotten

The Forgotten - Faye Kellerman I like the Decker-Lazarus family, and I like them somewhat better for being culturally somewhat alien to me, and therefore interesting. Their Jewishness is particularly relevant to this novel, which starts with the desecration of a synagogue, and ends up with researches into Treblinka, but is far more nuanced than that bald statement would suggest. It also has a fair bit of physical action for Decker, and his aches and pains are of the realistic sort.
