Description-
  • The quiet, ordered world of a yeshiva in the California hills is shattered when a woman is brutally raped as she returns from the mikvah, the bathhouse where women perform their cleansing ritual. Detective Peter Decker has never heard anything like it. And although most of the community refuses to talk to him, Rina Lazarus, the only witness, does, steering him through the maze of confusing religious laws that thwart his investigation at every turn. As the trail grows cold, Decker's only getting closer to Rina and not to the rapist --or is he? Maybe Rina was the intended victim all along. And the rapist may not stop with rape the next time...

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine In THE RITUAL BATH, Faye Kellerman introduces Rina Lazarus and Peter Decker, endearing characters who are thrust together when a woman is brutally raped in a Jewish ritual bath for women. While most of the community refuses to speak about the incident, Rina does, and begins to fall for Decker, the detective assigned to the case. Despite their attraction, Rina's strict religious beliefs become an apparently insurmountable barrier. Surprisingly, this novel has not appeared on audio until now, but listeners' patience is rewarded with this excellent performance by Mitchell Greenberg, who captures the electricity between the pair. Greenberg's narration style is well paced, and his use of accents and inflections brings every character to life, making the audiobook as memorable as its printed cousin. D.J.S.
