The eleventh book in the hugely popular Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus series from New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman
A secretive cult…
Dr. Emil Ganz was once a prize-winning astrophysicist with a world-renowned reputation. But for the past 15 years, he has been known as Father Jupiter, the autocratic but beloved leader of a mysterious cult.
An unexplained death…
Detective Peter Decker is called out to the cult’s fortress-like compound when Ganz is discovered dead – a vial of sleeping pills and an empty vodka bottle by his side. Accident? Suicide? Or murder?
A race against time…
The longer Decker spends inside the cult, the more concerned he becomes. Jealousy and greed are rife, and members start to disappear in unexplained circumstances. Soon, he finds himself locked in a desperate battle to uncover the cult’s secrets before scores more lives are put in danger.
