    Kellerman is very good at plotting, but..., August 13, 2003 Reviewer: Corinne Crammer from Decatur, GA USA the dialogue was very wooden -- almost comic book. The plot involves a newborn who is kidnapped out of the nursery at the same time that a trusted nurse disappears. Is the nurse the kidnapper or a victim of the kidnapper? Detective Decker gets involved because his newborn daughter is in the same nursery, and his teenage daughter has been spending time in the nursery. This is basically a "procedural" showing how Decker and others go about solving the crime/crimes. A lot of colorful characters may be involved, particularly some involved in bodybuilding and the staff at a home for the elderly. I think the author would do well to learn more about Christianity if she is going to talk about it in her books. I thought her understanding was poor (for example, she talks about the parable of the prodigal son but doesn't seem to understand what the point of this parable was). I also think she doesn't create a credible portrait of Christians. For example, she mentions that Decker's Baptist parents were upset that he had converted to Judaism and abandoned the Savior -- well, that's not the way Baptists talk -- they would probably not refer to Jesus as the Savior, but rather would simply call him "Jesus" or "our Lord." And they would probably use the word "saved" or "salvation" in expressing their concerns, but not the word "savior" -- it just didn't ring true. Kellerman also goes to great lengths to show Judaism in a positive light but makes Christians look like a bunch of half-wits. Stick to writing mysteries, Ms. Kellerman, and leave Christianity out of your books. I would have liked to learn more about Orthodox Judaism but too little time was spent on this (in my opinion).
