    In this latest installment featuring Peter and Rina Decker, we see diamond dealer Arik Yalom and his wife Dalia murdered and his sons fleeing the country. Meanwhile, one of Rina's former school friends Honey Klein has come to visit with her children. Klein appears distressed and her children forelorn, causing Peter to question if this was a pleasure visit or an escape. This book appears to me as a transition book in the series. Peter and Marge have a new position in homicide under a lieutenant w [...]

    I read this book for my mystery book club, it is the 7th in the Peter Decker / Rina Lazarus series by Faye Kellerman. Rina is an Orthodox Jew and her husband, Peter, converted to Judaism, which I’m thinking must have happened in the previous books. I had a hard time reading this book since there were so many Hebrew words used throughout, which slowed down the pace and understanding of exactly what was going on. There were 2 mysteries going on, one involving Rina’s high school friend, Honey K [...]

    I love this series, so far, but this was not my favorite story. It was well written, just person preference that you like some better than others. Love the main characters as usual, but didn't dig the secondary characters as much as usual. Did love the cameo from detective Sturgis. On to the next one.

  • Maiesha

    I was really hoping that I would like this book, since so many people I know had recommended Kellerman as a master of the mystery genre, but I was quite disappointed with this novel. This will likely be the last Faye Kellerman book I read. First, it was about 100-150 pages too long. I have no issue whatsoever with lengthy books with the level of detail and scope that justifies their length (The Golden Notebook and Dune are both favorites of mine). While I can't point to specific characters or su [...]

    After reading a very large intense book, I chose Sanctuary as my “in between” read, thinking it would be easy and light. I was pleasantly surprised to have really enjoyed it. In the beginning I thought it was a little hokey with just too much Jewish background, but I soon came to realize it was all an integral part of the entire plot. This murder-mystery deals with the diamond industry, and takes the reader from Los Angeles to Israel. When dealing with billions of dollars, there’s bound to [...]

  • Laura Beth

    Two mysteries for the price of one.I loved this story and I am really enjoying this series. I have been in a reading funk and not sure what the problem is. I have been working my way through many series, this one included. When I return to this series I always enjoy myself and loose myself in the world of Decker, his wife Rina, and his partner Marge. I also loved the shout out that Faye Kellerman gave to her husband when Decker gave a call to a West LA cop named Sturgiss (for those who haven't y [...]

  • Magpie67

    Stunning story revolved around diamonds what does religion and diamonds have in common A lot when you involve the Jewish diamond sellers, buyers and cutters and the country of Israel and South Africa. Brilliant, witty writing from Faye, of course, I learn something new every time I dive into her series with Peter Decker and Rina. Love that I learn about history, religion and crime solving with rich characters. Suspense wrapped up into a package of dynamite when the PLO is involved. The sad thing [...]

  • Katie

    Great read. Loved the excursion to Israel. Loved the conversation about gets, but not necessarily the story line of it. I mean the conversation they had about it while in Israel was fantastic. However, watching the story line play out was unsettling. Both murders fell in that gray area where I'm not really sure how I feel. There just isn't an easy answer to either of the situations. Was it right or was it condoning? And was there enough closure? My second favorite in series so far.

  • Nelleke Plouffe

    I appreciated this book for the look into Jewish culture. I liked the main characters, too. However, to me it lacked something as a mystery. The detectives' main method seems to be throwing wild theories around and hoping something ends up making sense. I just didn't find this believable.

  • Kristin

    I think this book was my favorite in the whole series so far. A good mix of religious knowledge, connection to Rina dn her family/community AND a good detective story.

  • Marita

    another good one

  • Cindy

    Like the series - always well plotted and narrated. Recommended.

  • Cathy

    I love a series where characters grow. The relationship between Peter and Rina comes across as believable and interesting.Sanctuary was a very meaty book, deep and challenging but rewarding. I look forward to continuing the series.

  • Alf Goodall

    If I recall correctly, this is the first of the series in which Rina actively works with Peter to solve a crime, where her fluency in Hebrew and knowledge of Israel are particularly valuable.

  • Isidore Teitelbaum

    Great read. Enjoyed it thoroughlyIntricate storyline but fast paced. Very entertaining. I am going to start reading t h e r d st of this series.

  • Anna

    Decker-series books are best enjoyed in chronological order, as the characters live and develop in and between the books.In this one, Decker investigates the case of a missing Israeli family consisting of diamond sellers and their teenaged sons. To keep his family life out of balance, Rina's high school friend, with whom she hasn't talked with for many years, comes over for a surprise visit with her children, all amazed by everything they haven't seen in their 18th century inspired, even more or [...]

  • Pam

    Love reading Kaye Kellerman's book but this was not one of my favorite. Tedious in parts - but worth the read.

  • Alex

    "Sanctuary" is a Jewish murder mystery. In this case someone MIGHT be murdered and he is Jewish. A Jewish detective is placed on the case to find him and the missing family. This was a pretty good read. I really liked it.The story: A Jewish diamond dealer is reported missing along with his wife and two sons. Detective Peter Decker is investigating along with his partner, Marge, who is trying to make her way up the ladder and getting a lot of guff. Decker's wife, Rina Lazarus, also gets involved [...]

    I have to give it a three because although I finished the book only two months ago (I’m behind in my reviewing), I had a difficult time remembering the end. I remembered the rest of the book but had to go back and re-read the ending before finishing my review. Guess that does not say much for the book. Not memorable.People have said that they are tired of all the Jewish terminology in Kellerman’s books but I find it fascinating. In this book there is more than usual because Decker and his wi [...]

    another reviewI had a difficult time remembering the end. I remembered the rest of the book but had to go back and re-read the ending before finishing my review. Guess that does not say much for the book. Not memorable.People have said that they are tired of all the Jewish terminology in Kellerman’s books but I find it fascinating. In this book there is more than usual because Decker and his wife, Rena, actually go to Israel. I found parts of the Jewish heritage very interesting such as Rena r [...]

    Probably close to 4.5 but it might b/c of my Decker/Lazarus withdrawal lately. I love this series and this was another good one. It has two simulataneously and possibly related crimes intermingled with the personal livesww Hannah is 9 months already!Decker & Marge are at their new station & division and Marge disappointed that she isn't getting the good cases and thinks she's getting another weak one and it turns into a missing family, which turns in missing/murder case related to the di [...]

  • Sherree

    A very strange story with the coincidences of two diamond dealers and their families disappearing. I was paying attention, while reading this book, to Faye Kellerman's descriptions of people who appeared one or more times. This is a pretty early book. The ones I have read from later go into excruciating detail about what everyone is wearing (for some reason I always seem to particularly notice the description of Marge and Oliver's clothing everyday). I wonder when this started, since it wasn't p [...]

    Una nuova avventura di Peter Decker ambientata all'interno delle comunità ortodossa. Questa volta si sposta addirittura in Israele per seguire un mistero che si intreccia con gli affari di un commerciante di diamanti. queste indagini si intrecciano con la scomparsa/assassinio di un altro commerciante di diamanti, la cui moglie è una compagna di infanzia di sua moglie. All'inizio puo' sorgere il duccio che le due storie possano avere tratti in comune, in realtà l'unico aspetto comune è il pro [...]

  • Debbie

    I like this author and have been going back and reading the first books that were written about Decker and his wife. The books that Ms. Kellerman writes are an easy read, and you feel that you are right there in the story.

  • Katherine

    I really enjoyed this early Peter Decker book. It isn't as visceral and overtly gripping as some of the other books, however it is thoughtful and intriguing from the start. The plot centres around parallel disappearances of diamond dealers and their families and I was particularly impressed by the structure Faye Kellerman uses, with the first part of the book set in LA as we expect and the second half in Israel. Peter is totally out of his comfort zone in Tel Aviv and relies very much on Rina - [...]

  • Susan Ackland

    This was my second Faye Kellerman. I haven't been a serial reader of one particular author for many years -- it's a practice I secretly disapprove of. Nevertheless, she has me hooked. "Sanctuary" involved murders within the Jewish part of the diamond industry and it was interesting to learn a bit about that "story." There was a secondary plot involving the ultra-orthodox community and the issues raised when a man refuses to give his wife a divorce. Ultimately the plot went over the top and becam [...]

  • Wanda

    Combines two mysteries in the same book that are sort of related. Both involve people involved in the diamond business with ties to Israel. Lots of Jewish history, culture and religious practices described. Peter gets involved looking for some missing people and find the parents dead and the children missing. He eventually tracks them to Israel and finds out why they were being hunted and who killed the parents. Meanwhile a friend of his wife comes to town with her children and then go missing. [...]
