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.
