Publisher's Summary

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.

The narrator ruined this

We chose this book for a long drive far Northern Sonoma County to Carmel. Both my partner and I love fake Kellerman. Sadly, we were highly disappointed. we went through about 15 minutes of the total and just couldn't go any farther. We ended up low loading another Faye Kellerman book for the drive. The saddest part is, we just just quickly and randomly it's so now we are out of sequence

Don't bother with this narrator. It was the wotst.

I love this series!

This installment in the series was one of the better ones so far!

Not much of a review I know, but I find it really difficult to critique series by the time you’re up to Book 10.

this book has "tooth"

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.
