Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus are back in this gripping mystery involving a secret cabal of some of Los Angeles’ most wealthy, and vicious, teens

LAPD lieutenant detective Decker and his wife, Rina, have willingly welcomed fifteen year old Gabriel Whitman, the son of a troubled former friend, into their home. While the enigmatic teen seems to be adapting easily, Decker knows only too well the secrets adolescents keep, witnessed by the tragic suicide of another teen, Gregory Hesse, a student at Bell and Wakefield, one of the city’s most exclusive prep schools.

Gregory’s mother, Wendy, refuses to believe her son shot himself and convinces Decker to look deeper. What he finds disturbs him. The gun used in the tragedy was stolen, evidence that propels him to launch a full investigation with his trusted team, Sergeant Marge Dunn and Detective Scott Oliver. But the case becomes darkly complicated by the suicide of another Bell and Wakefield student, a death that leads them to uncover an especially nasty group of rich and privileged students with a predilection for guns and violence. Decker thought he understood kids, yet the closer he and his team get to the truth, the clearer it becomes that he knows very little about them, including his own charge, Gabe. The son of a gangster and an absent parent, the boy has had a life filled with too much free time, too many unexplained absences, and too little adult supervision.

Before it’s over, the case and all its terrifying ramifications will take Decker and his detectives down a dark alley of twisted allegiances and unholy alliances, culminating at a heart-stopping point of no return.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika Koneck | 2/20/2014

    " I like Faye Kellerman, but, this Rina & Peter Decker series is getting very formula... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Terri | 2/19/2014

    " I read about 100 pages of the book and could not read any more. Maybe it was too close to home about kids and guns and whatnot, but being a teacher of inner city youth that live with this kind of violence, I could not get into this book...I don't even want to finish it...or know how it turns out... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 2/16/2014

    " It's always difficult to read about teens in troubled circumstances but this one captivated me -especially once the reader knew justice would be served. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dorinda | 2/15/2014

    " Katie says a 90 minute entertainment....I did not last that long, dull and poorly written even for this author who is no artist. Tortured make-out sessions ofg 15 yr olds.....yawn and grimace. Don't care enough to finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 2/12/2014

    " Really enjoyed this. I started it on a long airplane journey, and almost finished it on the trip... couldn't put down. Finished it a couple of days later...hated it to end. I always get wrapped up in her characters; can't wait until the next one's out! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 2/3/2014

    " Not a bad read. The characters are still intriguing and not dull yet. The plotline was pretty current. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don Bogardus | 2/1/2014

    " Different.... I have not read anything else of hers, so I'll reserve judgement till I read an additional one of hers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bobi Tribble | 1/11/2014

    " WOW!! Wow!! Sooo good a perfect mix of mystery and funny loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura Siegel | 1/6/2014

    " Love this series. All the characters are interesting and likable. Not a cliched who-done-it at all. This one had a pretty sexy romance going between a 14 and 15 year old. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julia | 1/3/2014

    " one of her best books "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachel | 11/18/2013

    " This was really awful. One star is one too many. I had to push myself to finish it and that was after skipping many pages that were just too sappy and irrelevant to bother reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice Reisman | 10/16/2013

    " I did enjoy this book, but it was two totally different stories in one. One was about young love, with a lot of complications, and the other about a gang of nasty kids. Overall, I did enjoy this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelia | 7/19/2013

    " Not my favorite - too much teenage angst! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leslie P | 5/30/2013

    " I like all of all the Kellermans' novels. They are full of suspense and have somewhat involved plots. The family in Faye's books are Jewish so I enjoy learning some about their faith and their practices. The policeman husband is a converted Jew so that provides more interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandy | 5/27/2013

    " Slow at first. Couldnt put it down last nite. Stayed up to finish it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kelsey | 9/23/2012

    " I normally enjoy Decker novels, however, the love story between Gabe and Jasmine is little more than soft porn. I was uncomfortable it. There was little in the way of police detective plot for the first eighteen chapters or so. Not impressive. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gybo1004 | 8/8/2012

    " Not as good as others she has written but generally a quick easy read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 7/31/2012

    " Ive read all of this series. This was my least favorite so far. Didnt really like all of the underage soft core porn in this one. Preferred previous books that really deal with peter and rina, although i like the gabe character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 4/21/2012

    " An excellent series and this one didn't let me down. Very Good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn Roys | 1/1/2012

    " This was not my favorite from her. Slow and I never really believed the teen characters. Faye - you need to go back to what you do best - adult characters with a mystery to solve.... "
