9780007517701: The Theory of Death (Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus Crime Thrillers)

The gripping new crime novel in the Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus series from New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman.

It has been almost a year since Greenbury’s last murder. Detective Peter Decker has enjoyed the slower pace of his new job with the upstate police department. Then he receives a phone call from his captain. A male body has been found in the local woods. It appears to be a suicide – single shot to the head, gun by his side – but until the coroner makes the final determination, Decker and his partner Tyler McAdams must treat the scene as a suspicious crime.

Identifying the body takes Decker and McAdams into the indecipherable upper echelons of mathematics at Kneed Loft College – a sphere of scheming academics, hidden cyphers and most dangerous of all, a realm of underworld crime where even the most conscientious students can become cold and calculating. It will take all of Decker’s wits and McAdams’s brains to penetrate enigmatic formulas and codes to solve a dark, twisted tale created by depraved masterminds.

From the Back Cover:

It has been almost a year since Greenbury s last murder. Peter Decker, a former lieutenant for LAPD, has enjoyed the slow pace of his new job with the sleepy upstate police department. All that changes when an unidentified, nude male body is found deep within the local woods.

It appears to be a suicide single shot to the head, gun by his side but until the coroner makes the final determination, Decker must treat the scene as a suspicious crime. The first thing he must do is identify the body no easy task. But then Decker gets lucky.

Tyler McAdams, a former Greenbury detective and now a first-year law student, calls Decker, and once he hears about the intriguing case, his attentions shift from statutes to corpses.

When the body is finally identified, Decker and McAdams must penetrate into indecipherable upper echelons of mathematics and mathematical prodigies at Kneed Loft College. It turns out to be a dangerous sphere of scheming academics, secret cyphers, and hidden corruption, where even harmless nerds can morph into cold, calculating geniuses. They will have to employ all of their wits to penetrate enigmatic formulas and codes to solve a dark, twisted tale created by depraved, evil masterminds."
