A man walks into a trendy Los Angeles restaurant - a disgruntled ex-employee with an automatic weapon - and seconds later, thirteen people are dead and 32 more have been wounded. It is a heinous act of mass slaughter that haunts Homicide Detective Peter Decker.
But, though eyewitnesses saw only the lone gunman - who apparently took his own life after his bloody work was done - evidence suggests more than one weapon was fired. It is a disturbing inconsistency that sends Decker racing headlong into a sordid, labyrinthine world of Southern California money and power, on an investigation that threatens to destroy his reputation and his career.

Reading allows me to travel through time, to visit the world's unique and stunning places, to become somebody I am not... It is glorious.
A mystery should have good twists, turns and surprises, and this one does. I would go so far as to say that the mystery in this book is more fully explored that the crime in most of the nine previous novels.
I have always loved the exploration of the main characters' personal lives. That is my favorite aspect of her books. And this one is no different. In fact, in this one we learn more about the kids' lives which is fantastic.
