In Sacred and Profane, and in its predecessor, The Ritual Bath, Kellerman brings those practices and beliefs into the spotlight. I decided to try a Faye Kellerman book after enjoying several of Jonathon Kellerman's books.

In Sacred and Profane, and in its predecessor, The Ritual Bath, Kellerman brings those practices and beliefs into the spotlight. The picture she paints of an insular culture is compelling. And it doesn't hurt that she writes well and has mastered the techniques of mystery and suspense fiction. Guess what? So far, I find Faye's books (I've read 3 to date) more compelling, more fun and just as well (if not better) written. Her ability to inject with great prowess both humor and seriousness into a oligical story is amazing.

That delicious stage of limbo between sleep and full arousal. The senses working but not consciously coding. Decker’s body was drugged with exhaustion from all-night lovemaking, his mind groggy from. words and confessions. He turned to his side and hugged his pillow as if it were a lover. His mouth had been hopelessly manic last night. He had talked, confide. abbled. What had he told her? It made no difference. There was still so much more left unsaid. So much more for the future.

I decided to try a Faye Kellerman book after enjoying several of Jonathon Kellerman's books. Guess what? So far, I find Faye's books (I've read 3 to date) more compelling, more fun and just as well (if not better) written. Her ability to inject with great prowess both humor and seriousness into a mystery-romance-socioligical story is amazing. I am reading every book, in the order written, before I go back to Jonathan's--or any other-- books.
Thank you Faye, Jonathan and Amazon!

There I was, reading along at a gallop, turned a page, and WHAM! It was over. Next thing I saw was the excerpts for "THE BEAST"! So I can't deny I enjoyed the book immensely. I have it a rating of 4. It was really good. If you like to read and you like to learn bits of things as you read, you would enjoy all of the Kellerman/ Lazeruss books, either singly or written together. I recommend them.

This book took us through many levels of issues. First Peter Deckers army friend accused of raping & slashing the face of a prostitute. Peter bails him out of jail and then sets out to try to clear him of the charges, even though he still has his doubts. His investigation into the underworld of prostitution. In the itnerim, Decker finds a small child and must find the parents, which leeds to finding part of the family have been slaughtered including the childs mother and going into the reason why. Deckers fiancee is back in the picture, but he does not like her being sxposed to his accused rapist friend. I know it sounds complicated and it is. Decker and his friend must deal with trials they suffered during the war. A thourally wonderful book. Would recommend it highly.

I am now on a roll with the Decker/Lazarus series having finished Sacred and Profane today and buying the next book in the series a few minutes ago. I really like both Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus and how real and deep their personalities are. Faye Kellerman writers very well developed characters who, in my opinion, are even more important than the crime being investigated. In this book, the crime takes us into the underworld of L.A.'s sex and porno trade which is very disturbing but not to the point that I was "put off" or wanted to lay the book down. I read it in two days and can't wait to read the next one.

"Sacred and Profane," the second Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus novel, proves to be even a better read than "The Ritual Bath," Faye Kellerman's first book in this outstanding mystery/sleuth series. This is a stand-alone novel, and one can easily get to know the cast of characters and their history without having read prior books. Ms. Kellerman provides a terrific change of pace from my usual fiction fare. Although these mysteries have their share of violence, gruesomeness and unsavory individuals, the ethnic/cultural aspect of the stories and the sheer humanity of the characters are refreshing.

LAPD Detective Sergeant Peter Decker met Rina Lazarus, a young and very beautiful widow, while investigating a rape at a yeshiva in Deep Canyon, CA, where she lives and works. Rina is an Orthodox Jewess and the mother of two small sons, Samuel and Jacob. Attracted to each other from their first meeting, Rina and Peter, feel their relationship is "bashert," meant to be or predestined. Raised a Baptist, Peter is studying with Rabbi Aaron Schulman to become an observant Jew, both for his own spiritual needs and in order to marry Rina. At times, however, he has doubts about the course he has chosen, although he never doubts his feelings for Rina. The couple are very much in love. Besides her beauty, outside and in, Decker is drawn to her total lack of guile.

Decker has become very close to Rina's sons and takes them on a camping trip where one of the boys discovers the charred remains of two corpses. Peter, who works in juvenile crime, is temporarily assigned to homicide to investigate this case. The skeletons, two women in their teens or early twenties, are identified through complex dental work and their murders are found to be connected to a grisly pornography ring which deals in "snuff" films." The case forces Decker to deal with the dregs of humanity, and although he is a hardened combat vet who served in Vietnam, and for years with the police, he becomes increasingly agitated and depressed. The fact that he is the father of a teen-age daughter, from a prior marriage, only increases his despair and anger. Seriously questioning the existence of God and the purpose of religion in his life, he becomes ambivalent about continuing his religious studies and practices. As he delves more deeply into the complex, macabre case, Peter becomes more and more isolated from Rina. And Rina, who in no way wants to pressure him, needs to find out how committed her finance is to their relationship and to becoming an observant religious man.

The author deftly handles the workings of the intense personal relationships between Peter, Rina and their children plus crime solving with apparent ease. As with the other Kellerman books I have read, her characters are her strength. They are truly three-dimensional and their dialogue is extremely realistic. I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery, the humanity of the characters, and details of the Orthodox Jewish customs and lifestyle.

I plan to read more of this excellent author's work and highly recommend it to others.

I love Faye Kellerman, her books keep you guessing from the beginning to the end. They keep you in suspense and wondering how that could be.
This one was amazing. Highly recommend it .

It is an exciting mystery but I love the insight into Jewish life present in each of Faye Kellerman's books

I was attracted to this series in part because I am deeply interested in Jewish culture and ritual as well as detective stories. The first book "The Ritual Bath" was very interesting. "Sacred and Profane", the second in the series was more about the seedy underbelly of Los Angeles, prostitution and pornography and less emphasis on Judaism. I will continue with the series because I like the setup of the police detective in love with the devout Jewish widow.
