The birth of their baby girl has filled Rina Lazarus and her husband, LAPD Homicide Detective Peter Decker, with joy mingled with sorrow, since complications have ensured that they can have no more children. But the situation is grim at the hospital, which has been devastated by severe budget cutbacks and staff shortages. And when a respected nurse vanishes along with a newborn from the nursery, Peter and Rina fear for the safety of their own precious child—especially when the missing nurse's car is found at the bottom of a cliff . . . with a corpse inside.

A most grievous sin has been committed. In pursuit of justice, Decker—with the help of his tough-as-nails partner, Marge, and an able assist from his teenage daughter, Cindy—follows a twisted path that winds through a sinister maze of hospital politics, misplaced passions, and torturous mind games that can all too easily lead to murder.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Kellerman weaves a satisfying mystery that includes elements of the Decker family’s daily life as Orthodox Jews. Her plot is generated by the failings of very human characters and derives depth from her consideration of healthy and unhealthy family relationships.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Engrossing…A well-balanced tale, engaging the listener in an intricate plot and the details of the personal lives and relationships of the main characters.”

    Library Journal

  • “Always suspenseful…Kellerman does know how to hook her readers. First, she tantalizes them with ambiguous clues and ominous glimpses of an unbalanced villain’s psyche, then she teases them with a blend of pulse-quickening suspense and heartwarming family tableaux. Only then does she deliver the shocking climax.”

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nadine | 12/11/2013

    " Story line was really good, but book had too much sex and bad language. Chapter three could have been totally eliminated. Wish I had put it down instead of finishing it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 11/22/2012

    " Not as good as many of the others. The resolution felt very contrived, and Kellerman dragged out the ending for way too long. She did include more orthodox Judaism in this one, which I really like learning about. "

    " It's been awhile since I've read any Faye Kellerman but I found this book to be kind of boring and confusing, not how I remember her stories. The plot was both boring and confusing. And, I couldn't stand Cindy and how she kept being obnoxious and playing detective. "
