The professional and the personal intersect in treacherous ways in this compelling and eerie installment in Faye Kellerman’s thrilling New York Times bestselling Decker/Lazarus series.
Throughout his years with the LAPD, Peter
Decker has handled a number of tough cases and strange killers. But few of his
previous assignments compare to his latest case. When Hobart Penny is found
dead in his apartment, the cops think his pet cat, an adult female tiger, attacked
the reclusive elderly billionaire. But it soon becomes clear the beast that
killed the eccentric inventor is all too human. Digging into the victim’s life,
Decker and his colleagues discover that Penny was an exceptionally peculiar man
with exotic tastes, including kinky sex with call girls.
Following a trail of clues that leads from a
wildlife sanctuary in the San Bernardino Mountains to the wild nightlife of Las
Vegas, the LAPD detectives are left juggling too many suspects and too few
answers. To break open the case, Decker wrestles with a difficult choice:
turning to Chris Donatti, the dangerous man who also happens to be the father
of Decker’s foster son, Gabriel Whitman.
As their work and intimate worlds collide,
Decker and his wife, Rina, find themselves facing tough questions. And when all
these shocking truths come out, exactly how well will Decker and Rina cope—and survive?
