    1 thought on “Serpent's Tooth”

    1. Lieutenant Peter Decker is back in an action packed mystery, to which I give 3.5 stars. In this tenth book in the series, we know the cast of characters, and Kellerman adeptly balances home and police life while developing them further. This time a deranged shooter enters Estelle's restaurant killing 13 including himself and wounding 32 others. It appears to be a simple murder suicide and Captain Strapp would like to keep things that way. Yet, in their investigations, Decker and his team of dete [...]

    2. Though not her strongest offering, Serpent's Tooth isn't the weakest Decker novel either. The book has an excellent opening. Kellerman makes you care about a scattered group of people in just a few pages - and then brutally murders a large number of them. The pacing of the story is good despite the ultimate frustration: knowing who the killer is and not being able to prove it. Instead of letting this knowledge (shared by both readers and characters) slow the book down and just make it out-and-ou [...]

    3. this was a great story. it was written in 1997ish and you can tell that it was "pre-CSI" because the forensics were up and coming, not a given. nevertheless, the plot and mystery were still worth reading.

    4. Greed, money, and critical planning. Major components in this title. Is it Suicide, Murder, or hired Assassins? Where will all the clues lead the team as they follow those found in the carnage of a shoot out at a popular restaurant? Lieutenant Peter Decker will find his clues a little bit unorthodox in this title, but skirting around the planned scenario is the only way to unearth a devious plot. Every title I read in this series, makes my heart sore with knowledge with a thirst to know more. Re [...]

    5. I've read quite a few books in this series, and liked them all to different degrees. This was probably 3.5 stars. It didn't make my list of favorite mysteries that year, but I did note that it was "pretty good". I think it was the first in the series that I read.

    6. I believe this is the book where she introduces the character Webster, who hails from Mississippi. She uses hackneyed dialog for him, and the blatantly bad accent is ridiculous. The worst thing was having him refer to one person as "y'all" - that is NEVER done in the real south. We know that y'all means a group of people, it's always used collectively duh. But then, in her later work (Street Dreams) she paints the south horribly - racially, and esthetically: "Yaakov, there are places in the good [...]

    7. Peter Decker and his family are such wonderful well rounded characters. I enjoy this series very much.

    8. One of the Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus novels, this is one of those procedurals that has so many characters, and so many twists and turns, that it's most easily read in long bursts. But, as ever, Kellerman's characters are so clear that the book's inertia carries it along.I'm not sure I enjoyed this one as much as others in the series--it felt like there were a few too many layers, to the point where so much was going on that some of the power of any one subplot almost had to be buried. Having bee [...]

    9. A strong entry in this fascinating series. A seemingly random mass shooting at an elegant restaurant turns out to be anything but random. As the investigation proceeds, complications build, finally forcing Decker off the case (officially). Decker initially suspects the daughter of one very rich couple who were victims of the shooting, who immediately turns his fairly routine questioning into a harassment case, which causes serious political problems for the LAPD. In spite of all the difficulties [...]

    10. Other members of Decker's family get involved in this story although he hasn't asked them to. His daughter Cindy also informs him she has dropped out of graduate school and applied to be the LAPD academy having decided she wants to be be police officer. Peter is furious with this decision, although as the story unfolds it is obvious she will make a great detective.

    11. I did not like how the police decided who was guilty and then just looked for evidence to fit their suspicions. They were right, of course, but it mirrors a worrying trend that occurs too often in real life.

    12. A well plotted novel. Characters have a well worked psychological base to their actions. A well planned and executed novel.

    13. I have fallen in love with this author. I like the way that she writes. This book is an easy read and the story line could be applied to normal or really abnormal life.

    14. A well written police procedural/mystery is always a favorite. Throw in family dynamics and a set of detectives with their own personalities and you have a good book. Add in a crime that is hard to solve with a cast of characters that are well written and a plot that takes some interesting turns and you get this 5 star book.

    15. Вооруженный психопат пришел в ресторан и начал стрелять по посетителям. Когда количество трупов уже превысило три десятка, он прекратил огонь и вышиб себе мозги из собственного оружия. В самоубийце позднее опознали бывшего официанта этого заведения, который незадолго до [...]

    16. Twee sterren lijkt weinig voor een boek dat ik twee keer heb gelezen. Ik weet niet wat ik de eerste keer van het boek vond, want ik kon me namelijk niet meer herinneren dat ik dit boek gelezen had. Vandaar dat ik het nu voor de tweede keer heb gelezen. Gaandeweg kwam ik er achter dat het verhaal me toch wel erg bekend voor kwam, maar omdat ik het einde niet meer wist, heb ik het toch uitgelezen. Het verhaal begint sterk en de ontknoping komt ook wel op een leuke manier tot stand. Verder leest he [...]

    17. This is the 10th in the Decker/Lazarus series. Love this series and this is one of the good ones of the series.Back Cover Blurb:A busy night at an elegant restaurant. Minutes later a gunman opens fire. Thirteen people are dead, dozens wounded, the medics working frantically to save them. Your worst nightmare. But at least the culprit seems clear. An ex-employee ambled up to the bar then sprayed the room with bullets, finally turning the gun on himself. But Lieutenant Peter Decker, in charge of t [...]

    18. Bought as part of a multi-author budget pack of eight thrillers a while ago, it was a decade before I got round to reading this. I can't say I massively regretted waiting that long.This was a fairly standard American police procedural, starting with a shooting in an restaurant, then progressing through aspects of money and high society and drugs and teenagers and manipulation. Most of the plot, even though it lost me at times, was pretty interesting and decent, and the writing style was easy to [...]

    19. This book was just okay for me. Maybe because this is the 10th book in the series, but the first that I've read of Peter Decker or anything from Faye Kellerman on that matter, the story is a bit off for me. I couldn't really connect with the main character.The story is about a mass shooting that's happened in an upscale restaurant that leads to the other events, which makes Lieutenant Peter Decker suspicious that the mass murderer was not the one dead on the scene, killing himself. Although it i [...]

    20. from another reviewer that gave 2 stars, A gunman opens fire in an LA restaurant, killing a dozen people. Then he shoots himself. He is an ex-bartender who was fired. Case closed. Except there are ballistics problems - like the bullets obviously came from different guns, in different directions. Peter Decker digs further and begins questioning the survivors, trying to find a link. After questioning Jeanine Garrison, whose wealthy parents were killed, she turns hostile and accuses Peter of sexual [...]

    21. I first heard about Faye Kellerman at a presentation at the synagogue about Jewish themed mysteries. That was a few years ago. Based on that, I picked "The Ritual Bath" for my book club, and I was disappointed. I don't really remember "The Ritual Bath," but I think Serpent's Tooth is better. The characters are nicely fleshed out, and the plot is cleverly drawn: a random shooting planned as cover for a contract murder. Surely it takes the coldest of cold, cruel villains to plan and execute such a [...]

    22. Really 2 1/2 starsA gunman opens fire in an LA restaurant, killing a dozen people. Then he shoots himself. He is an ex-bartender who was fired. Case closed. Except there are ballistics problems - like the bullets obviously came from different guns, in different directions. Peter Decker digs further and beginss questioning the survivors, trying to find a link. After questioning Jeanine Garrison, whose wealthy parents were killed, she turns hostile and accuses Peter of sexual harassment. They zero [...]

    23. #10 in the Peter Decker & Rina Lazarus series.#10 - Peter Decker / Rina Lazarus mystery - A former employee of a ritzy restaurant opens fire there, killing 13 people and wounding dozens; then he commits suicide. Or so it seems, until LAPD Lieutenant Peter Decker and his team spot inconsistencies. Fatal bullets came from several directions; a single gunman could not have sprayed so many shots; and one murdered couple left an estate worth millions. Decker suspects their daughter, Jeanine Garri [...]

    24. A much richer view of Decker's professional life and family life than previous novels in the series have offered. The suspect of the central case is obvious enough so that the mystery here isn't so intriguing and doesn't require as much attention. But that fortunately gives more room to character traits that have been sorely missed, and gives a new path in life to Cindy, Decker's daughter. Kellerman finally uses her pages not to drag out the case, but to give us more of the reasons we read this [...]

    25. # 10 in the Decker series. Comfort reads between some serious and action-packed stuff like Nesbø.Decker and his team investigate the massacre that occurred when a fired employee did a killing spree in the restaurant he used to work at. A bunch of small details don't match, as if there were two guns or two gunmen instead of just one killer. So off they go to find out who's behind it all and why.Usually I love the characters introduced in the series. But in this one they didn't seem as new or ori [...]

    26. There is a horrific mass murder that takes place in a restaurant. Of course, it is Peter Decker's case. I liked the book for a few reasons: It all makes sense at the end; I like the relationship aspects that Kellerman brings out; Because I am Jewish, I somewhat like the way the Jewishness of the family is woven in. However, I thought that some of the dialogue was stilted. It just didn't sound the way I believe some people talk. The story moved along fairly well. I think if I had read all the boo [...]
