Baker & Taylor
While his romance with Rina Lazarus, an orthodox Jewish widow, progresses to the limit of her religion's tolerance, Los Angeles detective Peter Decker investigates the brutal murder of two young women.

HARPERCOLL

Los Angeles Police Detective Peter Decker had grown very close to Rina's young sons, Sammy and Jake, as he had to their mother, and he looked forward to spending a day of his vacation camping with the boys. A nice reprieve from the grueling work of a homicide cop—until Sammy stumbles upon a gruesome sight . . .

Two human skeletons, charred beyond recognition, are identified by a forensic dentist as teenage girls—and for Decker, the father of a sixteen-year-old daughter, vacation time is over. Throwing himself professionally and emotionally into the murder case, he launches a very personal investigation: a quest that pulls him deep into the crack dens of Hollywood Boulevard and painfully close to the children of the streets and a nightmare world he must make his own.

Thought it was great and will get future series and read them. However, the constant use of unexplained jewish words annoyed me a bit.

Brilliant, gripping, but very disturbing in the main crime depicted (torture killing of a teenager in a movie).
