I agree. A terrific book-- and not just for mystery readers.

I read this eons ago but remember how I loved the character development and the romance between Peter and Rina. Start of a great series.

The first of Kellerman's Peter Decker & Rina Lazarus series this book involves the investigation of a rape at closed Jewish community and school in California outside the mikvah, the bathhouse where women perform their cleansing ritual. Detective Peter Decker of the LAPD is called upon to investigate with the help of a young widow Rina Lazarus. She helps guide him through the religious laws that hinder him from finding the truth. Though the investigation was interesting, the best part was exploration of the Orthodox Judiasm and its impact on the case. 3 1/2 out of 5 stars.
