Things are a bit grim at Scotland Yard this Christmas. On the heels of a nasty corruption scandal, the CID must now contend with a killer who is murdering pregnant women, so as to steal their babies. Chief Inspector Acton doesn't want Doyle anywhere near this case, of course, but she can't shake the feeling that there is more to his concern than his usual over-protectiveness - and more to this case than the usual psycho-killer.

I am usually good at figuring out the ending only a little into the story but this had me guessing almost completely to the very end.
The story went fast and the narrators voice added to the excitement.
I hope there is a book six.

In this, the fourth installment of the Doyle and Acton mystery series, Detective Sergeant Doyle realizes that several apparently unrelated murders are actually "containment" murders - murders to contain an ominous scandal that could reach into the highest levels of Scotland Yard's CID. In the process of tracking down the killers, however, she comes to the unsettling conclusion that Chief Inspector Acton has committed a containment murder or two of his own.

Amos Decker witnesses a murder just outside FBI headquarters. A man shoots a woman execution style on a crowded sidewalk, then turns the gun on himself. Even with Decker's extraordinary powers of observation and deduction, the killing is baffling. Decker and his team can find absolutely no connection between the shooter - a family man with a successful consulting business - and his victim, a schoolteacher.

Sometimes there are monsters hiding in the people we love. Monsters we don't see until it's too late. As a psychologist to abuse victims, I see the damage those monsters can cause every day and the hell the women go through to regain their lives. My experiences in life are a double-edged sword. Without them, I wouldn't understand the women who seek my professional help. Having them has ruined me for any woman. I refuse to let history repeat itself.

When Adrianne found out she was pregnant eight years ago, she made the decision to leave Bible school and raise her child alone. Staying would have prevented her boyfriend from fulfilling his God-appointed mission in life. But every day since, she has regretted her decision. Chris - rejected, confused, and heartbroken - finished school and soon found himself in Nicaragua, loving life as a missionary. But the void left by Adrianne's unexplained departure remains.

Without question, one of the hardest things to do is wait for god's timing. In this fast-paced world in which we live, things are set up for maximum speed and efficiency. Dazed and confused, we look for answers in all the wrong places. Our life becomes directed by fear instead of faith. We grow disheartened. Our faith can weaken. There are perfect times in your future when your life will blossom. All that god asks is for you to wait for them to be revealed.
