Publisher Description

The second book in the hugely popular Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus series from New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman

Los Angeles Police Detective Peter Decker had grown very close to Rina's young sons, Sammy and Jake, as he had to their mother, and he looked forward to spending a day of his vacation camping with the boys. A nice reprieve from the gruelling work of a homicide cop—until Sammy stumbles upon a gruesome sight . . .

Two human skeletons, charred beyond recognition, are identified by a forensic dentist as teenage girls—and for Decker, the father of a sixteen-year-old daughter, vacation time is over. Throwing himself professionally and emotionally into the murder case, he launches a very personal investigation: a quest that pulls him deep into the crack dens of Hollywood Boulevard and painfully close to the children of the streets and a nightmare world he must make his own.


Praise for Faye Kellerman:

‘Sensational’ Mirror

‘Brutal, well plotted and fast moving’ Observer

‘Kellerman creates a claustrophobic atmosphere, against a background of seediness, violence and distrust’ Sunday Telegraph

Too many typos!!

I'm about a third of the way through this book and am enjoying the story but OMG so many typing mistakes!! It seems to be every time a sentence is broken up by a line of three dots,instead of next word appearing after line of three dots the same word that was before the line appears. I'm pretty annoyed I paid good money for this book and no one bothered to proofread it before publishing Ebook!! Not Happy!
