Peter Decker is a fictional character in a series of mystery novels by Faye Kellerman. When he meets Rina, a young widow, during an investigation at a yeshiva in The Ritual Bath, he is compelled to explore the religion for himself and eventually to become a religiously observant Orthodox Jew. Decker, though raised Baptist by his adoptive parents in Florida , discovers as an adult that his birth parents were Jewish , which makes him Jewish under traditional Jewish law as well. All the books in the series are rooted in, or at least include, Jewish themes. Aside from Peter - a name with obvious Christian origin and connotations - he has a Jewish name, Akiva - the name of a famous ancient Jewish sage.
But now there's a new victim On a crisp September morning in the woods of upstate New York, Rina Decker stumbles upon human remains. Within hours, the forest is transformed into a frenetic crime scene. As Decker and his partner, Tyler McAdams, further investigate, they realize they're most likely dealing with a missing student from the Five Colleges of Upstate. And when more bodies are found in the same area, Decker and McAdams know this isn't just a one-off murder case. Now they must race to protect their community from a psychopathic killer still in the area - and on the hunt for a fresh victim.
