The Burnt House

Faye Kellerman, Author . Morrow $25.95 (438p) ISBN 978-0-06-122732-5

A coincidence so improbable that a character comments on it renders bestseller Kellerman’s 16th novel to feature Lt. Peter Decker of the LAPD and wife Rina Lazarus (after 2003’s Street Dreams ) one of the series’ lesser entries. After a commuter airplane crashes into an apartment building shortly after takeoff from Burbank Airport, Decker and his team investigate what many fear was a terrorist attack. Meanwhile, the parents of Roseanne Dresden, a flight attendant, suspect that their daughter was murdered by her stockbroker husband, Ivan, who claims his wife joined the doomed flight at the last minute. Roseanne was considering divorce, and Ivan stood to lose financially. As the probes into the crash and into Roseanne’s fate converge, readers will find it a challenge to suspend disbelief. Fans of the extended Decker-Lazarus clan will enjoy catching up with old friends, but those looking for a plausible police procedural may be disappointed. (Aug.)
