The Hesse suicide strikes a troubling chord in the household of Decker and his wife, Rina Lazarus, now that they've taken in Gabe Whitman—the gifted and brilliant fifteen-year-old son of a killer—whose own unexplained comings and goings only remind Decker that he knows almost nothing about the secretive boy living under his roof. But it's a second teen suicide—a young girl who attended the same exclusive prep school as Gregory Hesse—that points Decker and his detectives down a dark alley of twisted allegiances and unholy alliances . . . and toward a cold-blooded group of high schoolers with a shocking predilection for guns and violence.

I enjoy Faye Kellerman's books for a fun, not completely empty read. I just received Gun Games as an early birthday present and read it in a day. Yes, there was a good amount of teenage arousal, but I found Gabe and Yasmine's relationship pretty credible. It was a good counterpoint to the crime investigation. Come on, though- Faye, can't you let them use birth control? Still, an enjoyable installment in the Decker/Lazarus series.more
My first Faye and my first encounter with Rina and the Lu! Very enjoyable listening and such appealing characters.The narrator's very strong Chicago/Midweest accent wasn't perfectly appropriate but he did a very good job of capturing teenage yearning and validating the strength of early and first love. I will now go back and read the others in the series. Highly recommended.more
Decker and Rina have taken in brilliant 15-year-old Gabriel, a talented and smart pianist. He is savvy and able to deal with gun-toting bullies from a private school, and then it turns out that they're involved with a couple of suicides that Decker is investigating. The romance that develops between Gabe and a 14 year old Persian American girl is hot and heavy, and at least in the audio version seemed quite belabored.more
Another strong addition to the Rina and Peter Decker series; with the usual excellent cast of characters.more

This story is evenly divided between the perspectives of Lieutenant Decker and fifteen year old Gabe, both personalities come off as pretty relaxed and easy going, until a problem hits, then they are on their toes and fast thinkers. I enjoyed the fact that even at the age of fifteen, Gabe was overall a very intelligent boy, but like most teenage boys the thought of sex drives most of his storyline. I believe that the relationship that slowly builds between Yasmine (14) and Gabe (15) was incredibly romantic. Although the more mature scenes between them I had a hard time picturing her as visually looking "10-12" years old as she is described by the author. The connection they had together from their love of music, piano, opera was a nice pace of story to break up the intense detective work that the lieutenant was going through.The Lieutenant and his staff are working to figure out how the boy that committed suicide got the gun. This detective work, along with the additional suicide of a girl that attended the same school, starts to trigger more questions. As the deceased teenagers property starts to turn up missing the school and it's students are getting inspected further and further as they try to connect the missing links. There is very clearly a gang of students that stand out and the only question is why is there a "mafia" group at a prestigious high school, and what is their involvement with Guns and drugs.The story raps up with dangerous activities tumulting in some very dangerous Gun Games. With a combination of sex, drugs, gangs and guns this story reads like a gangster movie.more
I've been reading this series since the beginning and have to say I was rather disgusted by this book. I felt that the information about Gabe's sexual dreams or whatever you want to call them was TMI. It would have been a much more enjoyable book without them. There are several places in the book where Decker spends time investigating a serial killer. I was puzzled as to how this was a part of the book. I don't remember it from an older book and the details on it were sparse. Not her best effort but it was a somewhat enjoyable read.more
