Murder 101 by Faye Kellerman

Murder 101 by Faye Kellerman - 384 pages
Decker / Lazarus Novels Book 22

It's rare that this far into a series the author has been able to keep up the tone and intensity the drew me to it in the first place.  This latest installment takes Lazarus and Decker into a new life of retirement in upstate New York.  Decker is a little at loose ends as he adjusts to life as a detective in a small town police department compared to being with the LAPD.  A seemingly small crime involving theft from a mausoleum evolves into a whodunit murder mystery crossing across state lines and social boundaries.  The change of scenery helps add new depth to these well loved characters and I enjoyed the cameos from their extended family as well.  As always you learn about art, history and religion without even realizing it.  Highly recommended.
