Product Description:

In this thrilling chapter in Faye Kellerman’s bestselling series, Rina Lazarus makes a shocking discovery in the woods of her upstate New York community that leads her husband, police detective Peter Decker, through a series of gruesome, decades old, unsolved murders, pointing to a diabolical, serial killer who’s been hiding in plain sight.

On a bright and crisp September morning, while walking a bucolic woodland trail, Rina Decker stumbles upon human remains once buried deep beneath the forest grounds. Immediately, she calls her husband, Peter, a former detective lieutenant with LAPD, now working for the local Greenbury Police. Within hours, a vista of beauty and tranquility is transformed into a frenetic crime scene. The body has been interred for years and there is scant physical evidence at the gravesite: a youthful skeleton, a skull wound and long dark strands of hair surrounding the bony frame. As Decker and his partner, Tyler McAdams, further investigate, they realize that they’re most likely dealing with a missing student from the nearby Five Colleges of Upstate—a well-known and well-respected consortium of higher learning where Rina works.

And when more human remains are found in the same area, Decker and McAdams know this isn’t just a one-off murder case. Short-staffed and with no convenient entry into the colleges, Decker enlists Rina’s help to act as the eyes and ears of campus gossip. Winding their way through a dangerous labyrinth of steely suspects and untouchable academics, Decker, McAdams, and Rina race to protect their community from a psychopathic killer still in the area—and on the hunt for a fresh victim.



A simple hike in the woods is all Rina Lazarus is expecting, perhaps with the opportunity to photograph some nature scenes along the way. Rina is doing just that when she stumbles upon a corpse, and thus begins Pete Decker’s newest case.

The deceased is a young man with a complicated history, and as Decker begins the investigation, he realizes that the unusual circumstances of the victim’s life are either going to hinder or help him find out who the young man is. None of the pieces fit together neatly, but it almost doesn’t matter because there are soon other discoveries at the burial site that set Decker off onto a myriad of pathways that must intersect … but where?

The clue lies in the colleges that share not only a location, but some faculty, students and all different types of social, political and educational organizations. Decker has lots of help sifting through the evidence and seemingly endless trails, but he can and does count on his old pals from his days in Los Angeles to come through in a pinch, and that they do.

The Bone Box is the latest of Faye Kellerman’s series featuring the married couple of Pete Decker and Rina Lazarus, and it’s every bit as fresh as when we first met Decker nineteen novels ago. That said, the complicated web surrounding the investigation at times seems heavy and unduly intricate, with an over-abundance of stereotypic collegiate misbehavior and a lack of clear motivation for the crimes committed. But the cast of characters in Decker’s circle is always entertaining, from his charming wife to the law student currently serving as Decker’s work partner. The Bone Box won’t keep you up at night, but it will keep you interested and curious as the pages fly by.

Rina Lazarus is enjoying a leisurely hike in the woods near her home when she stumbles over something. Glancing down she notices that it is skeletal fingers. She calls her husband, Peter Decker, a detective with the Greenbury Police Department. His investigation leads towards the probability of a student who disappeared years ago. 

The Greenbury area is known as Five Colleges of Upstate. Decker and partner Tyler McAdams begin the investigation into the discovered body by looking at missing persons in the area. The hiking trail where Rina discovered the body is a new trail so the area was not in use until recently. Several students have disappeared over the years with no clues as to what might have happened to them. As the investigation deepens Decker suspects there may be more bodies and that evidence is pointing towards someone who may be involved in the colleges. The department is short of help so Rina joins in the search for answers through her association with the students. The suspense builds and the evidence starts pointing towards a possible serial killer. Rina's life may be in danger as the trio gets closer to the truth.

Kellerman's latest novel is a page turner with twists and turns as the plot unfolds and builds towards an explosive ending. A must read for Kellerman fans.
