Publisher's summary

When Peyton and Marco are pulled off the most significant case of their careers, they struggle to find their equilibrium. Marco's growing distance brings out Peyton's worst insecurities, and while everyone around her seems to be moving forward in their lives, she feels stuck.

Assigned to investigate the murder of a reality star's boyfriend, Peyton questions whether her absolute dedication to her job is worth it. Then again, when she looks into the future, she doesn't see much more - except long nights filled with loneliness.

Marco and Peyton get more complicated than ever...

This time Peyton and Marco are asigned to a murder in Chinatown - a celebrity chef's boyfriend has been shot and they are supposed to discover who did it. At the same time in Miami a cold case unit is working on a 20-year-old case of homebraking getting wrong, with two victims and a daughter that soon afterwards vanished into thin air. But why does no-one seem to have even one photo of the missing girl? What happened to Lily? And what do these two cases - one in Miami and one in San Francisco - have in common?
As we follow the two investigations, the threads, at first loose and leading nowhere, finally knot together and we get a satisfactory conclusion to both cases... As always, Ms Hamilton doesn't disappoint with her meticulously drawn criminal plot.

But as with the previous books, the murder plot - intriguing as it is - is only half of the story. Much more happens in the private lives of the characters we've got to like so much. Jake is finally going to get some closure, with the trial of his wife's killer finally taking place; Maria goes through a horrible ordeal; and the emotional turmoil in Marco and Peyton's relationship is at its peak... This storyline is even more fascinating than the crimes themselves and engage you even more in the book.

The narration, as usual with Ms Hazen, is very good, although again I didn't like some of the voices - but I"ve got used to them over the last four books and would probably have problems with recognizing the individual characters if their voices suddenly changed:) So no star deduction this time:)
