Lieutenant Peter Decker resents having to commit valuable manpower to a cold case simply because a rich woman says, "Jump!" But when a primary investigator in the Little case, now retired, suspiciously commits suicide hours after he and Decker talk, the detective realizes something evil's connecting the dots in two murders separated by a decade and a half. Wife Rina Lazarus offers a cool, rational outlook, as always, despite her growing concern for her husband's welfare--as past and present collide with a vengenance, catapulting Decker ever closer to the edge of an infinite dark abyss.
I have always enjoyed Faye Kellerman's books featuring Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus and have followed their marriage through the years along with the mysteries they share. Their lives have matured nicely along with their children into one of the most grounded families I've ever encountered in books. The unsolved murdeer of a favorite teacher prompts a wealthy "geek" to seek help finding the murderer even though the case has been closed for years. When another murder occurs mimicking the long ago crime, Peter Decker becomes involved and the hunt is on! As usual you won't want to put the book down until the last page.
