Peter and Rina are planning for retirement. As they board a plane headed for Israel and the first steps to purchasing their retirement home, word comes that a body that relates to an ongoing case has been found in the woods. Peter, resolved to begin stepping away, gives some final suggestions to his partner and signs off. Almost simultaneously, Theresa, the biological mother of Gabe (Peter and Rina’s adult foster child), is brutally attacked in Los Angeles and one of her other two children is kidnapped.
Thus begins another exciting story, full of action and intrigue, where many of the characters readers have come to love and hate appear, older, not necessarily wiser, different, yet much the same. For long-time readers of Faye Kellerman, it is a journey of the tying up of loose ends and discovery of back-stories and motivations, culminating in a twist of fate that is unexpected and final. For the uninitiated it is an exciting way to begin the introduction. Kellerman writes in such a way that it is easy to jump in the middle, or end of the story.
The Hunt is a masterpiece of parallel plots, each connecting, but not in the way that is expected. Faye Kellerman has written a gripping, twisting, turning final installment to the tale of our favorite detective, Peter Decker, his amazing wife Rina, and the entire Decker family. Old fans of the Decker tales will feel a bittersweet tug as they reach the end, and newcomers to the series will certainly turn immediately to find the ones that came before.
