As a detective lieutenant with the LAPD, Peter Decker witnessed enough ugliness and chaos for a lifetime. Now, he and his devoted wife Rina Lazarus are ready to enjoy the quiet beauty of upstate New York, where they can be closer to their four adult children and their foster son. But working for the Greenbury Police department isn't as fulfilling as Decker hoped. While Rina has adapted beautifully to their new surroundings, Decker is underwhelmed and frustrated by his new partner, Tyler McAdams, a former Harvard student and young buck with a bad 'tude. Just when he thinks he's made a mistake, Decker is called to his first real crime here--a possible break-in at the local cemetery. At first, it seems like a false alarm until it's discovered that a mausoleum's stunning Tiffany panels have been replaced by forgeries. Then, a coed at one of the exclusive local colleges is brutally murdered. Poking into the hallowed halls of academia to find a killer, Decker and McAdams are drawn deep into a web of dark secrets, cold case crimes, international intrigue, and ruthless people who kill for sport. Suddenly, the job is anything but boring. This case just might be too much to handle and Decker will have to draw on every ounce of experience that he has garnered in the past thirty years as a Homicide cop. And then again, even that might not be enough!

My favourite mystery author and series.. Not up to the usual high standard, though. More about an art forgery this time, which was different.. It was readable.
I did not care for the conclusion.. It did not resolve all the questions.. Seemed muddled..

I have been reading this series for fifteen years. How interesting to see the characters age. Delightfully spooky

I had enjoyed the series but found that it had become a bit stale. However, this book rekindled my interest in the series.

The setting was different. The Deckers have moved to the East Coast to be closer to family and for Decker to take a less taxing job. There were some new characters, and the mystery was intriguing. The information on art was quite educational for me too. I really enjoyed this book--had a hard time putting it down--and am looking forward to the next book in the series.

This book is forgettable... and dragged out. almost tossed it a couple times...
However I read it to the end ... not a Baldacci or a Patterson for sure.
