9780061999253: Sacred and Profane (Decker/Lazarus Novels)

Los Angeles Police Detective Peter Decker had grown very close to Rina's young sons, Sammy and Jake, as he had to their mother, and he looked forward to spending a day of his vacation camping with the boys. A nice reprieve from the grueling work of a homicide cop until Sammy stumbles upon a gruesome sight . . .

Two human skeletons, charred beyond recognition, are identified by a forensic dentist as teenage girls and for Decker, the father of a sixteen-year-old daughter, vacation time is over. Throwing himself professionally and emotionally into the murder case, he launches a very personal investigation: a quest that pulls him deep into the crack dens of Hollywood Boulevard and painfully close to the children of the streets and a nightmare world he must make his own.

Product Description:

Detective Peter Decker's camping trip into the foothills above Los Angeles was meant to help get him closer to the young sons -Sammy and Jake - of his girlfriend, Rina Lazarus. So when the older boy stumbles on a horrific find - two charred human skeletons - Decker is filled with appalled guilt, not to say plunged into a case of double murder. And it is a truly horrifying case. One that takes him from the middle-class respectability of the suburbs to the terrifying crack dens of Hollywood Boulevard. But he is constantly drawn back to the fact that the only unifying thread in a network of violence and sickening corruption seems to be the deaths of two apparently very different young girls...

Product Description:

Part of a series of mysteries featuring detective Decker and Rina Lazarus, the orthodox Jewish widow, this book investigates a gruesome murder which embarks Decker on a shocking outward journey into the worst of modern life, while he travels on a spiritual journey with a Rabbi.
