Gun Games: A Decker/Lazarus Novel (Decker/Lazarus Novels). Usually I like to read Faye Kellerman's novels because she is one of very few female authors of crime fiction who writes dialog that actually sounds like men speaking. Unfortunately she missed on this one. The Mercedes Coffin: A Decker and Lazarus Book. She still writes dialog better than her husband, but in this case it just doesn't sound right. The plot seems a little contrived, but still better than average. The character development seems to depend more on the previous novels we have read, rather than this one.

Having enjoyed Rina and Decker novels, I was very up-beat about this one.....what a crushing disappointment! Except for all of the teeny-bopper sex, it read like a re-do of Sweet Valley High books. Very short on plot and long on tedious examples of teen-age texting. The characters were so one dimensional that they could slide under a door. Their so-called love affair was ridiculous. Hopefully, we will not see this pulp fiction style again from Ms Kellerman. It seemed like the kind of junk that you throw together to beat a deadline or to fulfill a contract from your publisher. Don't read this book unless you want to be bored stiff and it is way too sexy for the age group that would be interested in it. Well, that's time lost that I'll never have back!!!

Normally I wouldn't bother to review a book that has already been reviewed by 58 other readers, but Faye Kellerman's "Gun Games" is so bad that I felt compelled to add to the 1, 2,and 3 star reviews. Now, I've been reading both Kellermans since their first books. The quality of both authors has waxed and waned, but both have - in general - published solid mid-tier books. I don't think I've given either Kellerman less than a 4 star review; I tend to review based on previous books by the same author. It's useless - and unkind - to compare Faye Kellerman to Leo Tolstoy, but she writes a good story with compelling characters. Those characters have changed slightly over the years as Rina and Peter have grown gray and new characters are added who serve to update the storyline.

But in "Gun Games", Kellerman has gone to a plot situation seemingly akin to long-running soap operas on TV. You know, the ones that feature the young lovers in the main roles and the old standbys who are trotted out once-in-a-while to give advise and muse about love "back in the day". And the younger characters are never as interesting as the older ones. But having a "hot story" sells the soap better than an old one does, it seems.

In "Gun Games", Kellerman has relegated Peter and Rina to the back bench in favor of young lovers, Gabriel and Yasmine. Star-crossed lovers, Gabriel is the foster son of the Deckers and he is a budding piano genius, who, at the age of 15 has already been offered admission to both Julliard and Harvard. He's also the son of a hit-man the Deckers have known for a few years and for somewhat murky reasons, murkily told in the last couple of books, is living with the Deckers. His new love is Yasmine, a 14 year old daughter of Persian Jews living in the Valley - San Fernando, of course - and their relationship model is "Romeo/Juliet". But, Faye Kellerman is no William Shakespeare, and the reader is already at an "ick" point because neither Gabe nor Yasmine is particularly interesting and the thought of underage sex is, is...icky. Really icky.

Added to the star-crossed (young) lovers are a bunch of rich losers at a well-regarded private school that prides itself on mainlining its students straight into the Ivy League. Now, husband Jonathan has already written about what goes on in LA private schools that are hotbeds of drug use, paganism, "mean girls", murder, and torture. I think he's used the plot point in several of his books. It's a tedious plot devise at best, and boring at worst. And the private-school-loser-sickie-murderers are pretty boring in Faye's once-clever hands. (Full disclosure: my two sons went to private school - admittedly not in LA - and I don't think any of "that stuff" went on at their school. Though maybe I was too busy watching "All My Children" to notice...)

Throw in a couple of teenage suicides at the school and a whole bunch of text messaging between R and J and you've basically gotten the gist of Faye Kellerman's "Gun Games". It's just a lousy book, and I don't know if Faye was channeling the "Young Adult" fiction writers at Amazon's ABNA competition, but she should deep-six the "teens-n-texting", and return to the old folks she's been writing about so well up to now. You know, Rina and Peter...
