    I usually enjoy this author but this book was quite ridiculous at the end If I had known from the start it was a fantasy I probably wouldn t have bothered reading it.

    I know this isn t part of Kellerman s canon, but I was charmed by its quirky weirdness I think I saw someone s comment saying this book reads as if written by a man, and I m inclined to agree This book was an appealing if gory flight of fancy, deftly plotted and executednobody s taking home a Pulitzer or a NBA here, but does this book go into my beach bag every year You bet.The tiredest of tired cliches is Don t judge a book by its cover, but close behind is Don t judge a book by it I know this isn t part of Kellerman s canon, but I was charmed by its quirky weirdness I think I saw someone s comment saying this book reads as if written by a man, and I m inclined to agree This book was an appealing if gory flight of fancy, deftly plotted and executednobody s taking home a Pulitzer or a NBA here, but does this book go into my beach bag every year You bet.The tiredest of tired cliches is Don t judge a book by its cover, but close behind is Don t judge a book by its bad press Read it for yourself and form your own opinion

    I put down Faye Kellerman s MOON MUSIC in disappointment I gave it a lot longer than I should have because I love her Peter Decker series, but this book was dismal Well, not badly written, but all of the characters are weird, emotionally damaged, and too distant to take any real interest in I miss the relationships and the character development in her other books The story itself was also very strange, suspensethan mystery really Not that I dislike suspense, but it just didn t work fo I put down Faye Kellerman s MOON MUSIC in disappointment I gave it a lot longer than I should have because I love her Peter Decker series, but this book was dismal Well, not badly written, but all of the characters are weird, emotionally damaged, and too distant to take any real interest in I miss the relationships and the character development in her other books The story itself was also very strange, suspensethan mystery really Not that I dislike suspense, but it just didn t work for me

    I don t like leaving negative reviews, but I really did not enjoy this It started out OK but veered off in a bizarre direction that I was not prepared for And in my opinion, Kellerman really didn t sell the material Unlikable characters Awkward writing Poor pacing I m sorry, but I really wouldn t recommend this to anyone, not even Faye Kellerman fans This is not her best work.

    An interesting plot combining the suspense of a crime novel, a little science fiction, and the ever popular werewolf I enjoyed Moon Music although not as much as Ms Kellerman s Dekker and Lazarus books.

    This book follows the lives and loves of police detectives, casino bosses, hookers, and medical examiners in Las Vegas, Nevada Toss in some mystery, murder, and mayhem with some cannibalism and shape shifting, and Faye Kellerman s Moon Music is a compelling read.I definitely welcomed the opportunity to check out this book of Kellerman s that I had missed along the way.One of the most intriguing aspects of the ending which I will not divulge for fear of creating a spoiler was how there was s This book follows the lives and loves of police detectives, casino bosses, hookers, and medical examiners in Las Vegas, Nevada Toss in some mystery, murder, and mayhem with some cannibalism and shape shifting, and Faye Kellerman s Moon Music is a compelling read.I definitely welcomed the opportunity to check out this book of Kellerman s that I had missed along the way.One of the most intriguing aspects of the ending which I will not divulge for fear of creating a spoiler was how there was still just a hint of mystery that hovered over the characters, especially for one primary character, Romulus Poe There was a lingering cloud of doubt about the actual events that had transpired.Suffice it to say, there is plenty of crime scene stuff to satisfy those who enjoy that aspect of solving murders And the character Rom treated us to various theories along the way, even some of which sounded totally out there to other detectives on the force.Add in a little mysticism, set against a historic backdrop of atomic bomb testing sites in the area all yield interesting twists to this tale of horrific homicides.Some of Kellerman srecent novels, especially those dealing with the rituals of the Jewish faith, areto my liking I do not actually enjoy the shape shifting and cannibalistic aspects of a story, although there are plenty of people out there who do.So for me, I would give the book four stars for others, the rating might be higher

    Romulus must discover who is brutally killing prostitutes and leaving them in the Las Vegas desert.This was the first book I read by Faye Kellerman and I have to admit I was disappointed Almost from the beginning I had reservations when I learned the main character was Romulus who had a twin brother Remus I thought, you have got to be kidding me But in the end it was the bizarre nature of the plot that turned me off To avoid giving away any spoilers, I ll leave it at that.
