The Forgotten, Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)

Description

A place of worship is vandalised, daubed swastikas testifying to a hatred that, for a time at least, defies understanding. But the Deckers, Rina and her detective husband Peter, soon realise the violence done to their synagogue can be traced to one deeply disturbed adolescent, Ernesto Golding.

Born into privilege but obsessed by the past, he is eventually charged, his case closed.

But Peter Decker still worries that others were involved. And six months later Ernesto is found murdered. Suddenly Decker and his family are plunged into a ghastly world of damaged youth, ruthless parents and secrets, with roots deep in the horrors of the last generation, which seem to demand ultimate retribution...

Absolutely gripping. Kellerman does not provide easy answers and she has a sympathetic but unwavering eye when it comes to family relationships. The Forgotten can be a heart-wrenching read at times as it deals with both the Holocaust and parents facing the loss of a child.

This is the 13th of the Decker/Lazarus series and I have enjoyed each one. I have learnt a lot about the Jewish faith and have loved watching Peter and Rina's relationship grow.Back Cover Blurb:A place of worship is vandalised, daubed swastikas testifying to a hatred that, for a time at least, defies understanding.But the Deckers, Rina and her detective husband Peter, soon realise the violence done to their synagogue can be traced to one deeply disturbed adolescent, Ernesto Golding.
