Description

A cold case turns red hot, threatening to consume detective Peter Decker and his wife, Rina Lazarus in the spellbinding new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman.

Billionaire genius Genoa Greeves never got over the shocking death of her favorite teacher, Bennett "Dr. Ben" Alston Little, murdered execution-style and stuffed into the trunk of his Mercedes Benz. No arrests were ever made. Fifteen years later, the high-tech CEO reads about another execution-style murder. The case is eerily similar and Genoa offers the L.A.P.D. a substantial financial "incentive" if justice is finally served.

Lieutenant Peter Decker resents having to commit valuable manpower to a fifteen-year-old open case. Still, the recent murder does bear a disturbing resemblance to Dr. Ben's case and Decker can't help but wonder about a connection. Decker's team of investigators includes his newly minted Hollywood detective daughter, Cindy Kutiel, while wife Rina Lazarus continues to be his backbone of support. Rina's worries and fears begin to build as past and present collide with a vengeance, catapulting an unsuspecting Decker closer and closer to the edge of an infinite dark abyss. A relentlessly gripping tale spun by a master, Faye Kellerman's The Mercedes Coffin races through a dangerous urban world, where truth and justice are fine lines between life and death.

        June 30, 2008
        In bestseller Kellerman's uneven 17th novel to feature LAPD Lt. Peter Decker and wife Rina Lazarus (after 2007's The Burnt House
        ), Decker must solve a 15-year-old cold case—the murder of saintly Bennett Little, a high school history teacher whose bound body the police found, with three shots in the back of his head, in the trunk of Little's Mercedes. When unscrupulous music producer Primo Ekerling turns up dead in the trunk of his Mercedes, Genoa Greeves, a wealthy computer mogul with fond memories of Little as a teacher, offers the LAPD a seven-figure charitable donation to reopen the case. Early in the reinvestigation, Decker is brought up short when one of the original cops on the case “eats his gun” just before a scheduled appointment with the lieutenant. Finding a link between Little and Eckerling won't prove easy. Fans may enjoy the interplay among Decker, Rina and their children, but newcomers would be advised to start with an earlier entry in this popular crime series.

        November 15, 2008
        In the 17th Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus mystery from "New York Times" best-selling author Kellerman, the LAPD reopens a murder case that's been cold for 18 years when it looks like a new killing might be related. George Guidall (who also reads Robin Cook's "Foreign Body", p. 38) masterfully adjusts his voice and accent to help listeners differentiate among the many characters. Though not as straightforward as some of Kellerman's other audio titlesthe unraveling of the plot on the last two discs is especially difficult to followthis is recommended for public libraries whose patrons are fans of the author as well as for those wanting to complete their Kellerman collections.
