The wife of the White House deputy chief of staff has been beaten to death, and their one-year-old daughter is missing. D.C. Police Lieutenant Sam Holland is in charge of the murder investigation, but she's forced to collaborate with Special Victims Unit detectives as well as thorn-in-her-side FBI Special Agent Avery Hill. Then, a cold case of her father's resurrects old hurts - a distraction Sam cannot afford. As Sam's investigation heats up, so does Nick's political career - and the heat carries over to their bedroom. Will Sam put the pieces together in time to catch a killer and find the baby?

Sybil and Blake Gregory have established a predictable, well-ordered Manhattan life - she as a cutting-edge design authority and museum consultant, he in high tech investments - raising their teenagers, Andrew and Caroline, and six-year-old Charlie. But everything changes when Blake is offered a dream job he can't resist as CEO of a start-up in San Francisco. He accepts it without consulting his wife and buys a magnificent, irresistibly underpriced historic Pacific Heights mansion as their new home.

I like Danielle Steel but his one is not among my favorites. Whinny children and a story line that keeps trying to get somewhere. The end could be very touching but I just couldn't summon much excitement.
