An engrossing story primarily about Lieutenant Peter Decker's daughter, Cindy, this time. She's now a member of LAPD and rescues a baby heard crying in a dumpster. Faye Kellerman holds your interest throughout with strong characterizations, good plot and believable dialogue. -- Paul C.

Great read. Slow at first but it really is worth it. The ending left a little to be desired but was good all the same. Loved the book overall!

THis is my favorite Decker book ever. I love the interaction between Peter and Cindy and her new boyfriend adds a nice element to the story.

I have read all of the Decker and Lazarus books (so far) and honestly, this was the only one that disappointed me. I'm not saying it isn't worth reading, but the story line is on Cindy Decker and just does not have the same feel. Peter and Rina are a small side story. To me, both storylines ended rather abruptly without interest.

In this Kellerman novel, the Decker as the main character isn't Peter, but his daughter, Cindy, an LAPD officer who has rescued a new-born infant from a dumpster and begins the search for its mother. As with all Kellerman's novels, there's lots of twists and turns, well-developed characters and an intense plot that keeps you turning the pages. Cindy calls on her father, Peter, albeit reluctantly, to help solve the mystery.

Because Kellerman doesn't reprise history in her latest Rina Lazarus and Peter Decker mystery, readers new to the long-running series may find themselves frustrated by the allusions.

But Decker family fans will speed through this solid whodunit, which is not only an entertaining puzzler but also takes the characters' relationships to a new level. Cindy, a rookie cop and Peter's 28-year-old daughter by his first marriage, takes center stage here. Both her rocky history with the department and with her dad come to the fore as she digs into the case of a developmentally disabled teenager who abandoned her baby, insists she was raped, and may have witnessed a murder. Following the strangely coincidental hit-and-run of another disabled teen from the same area, the case blossoms into a mystery that requires help from Peter and from Cindy's new boyfriend, an Ethiopian-born Jew who finds willowy, red-haired Cindy to be the girl of his dreams.

Kellerman's original series about LAPD Detective Peter Decker has given birth to a new generation in which daughter Cindy follows in dad's footsteps. In this second of the series, young Decker finds a baby in a dumpster. Her search for the baby's parents leads to a developmentally disabled mother who was raped, a father who may have been murdered, and a gang that wants to get Decker off the case by putting her permanently out of commission. Still, Decker finds time to meet a near-perfect man, have wild sex, and deal with personal issues. Decker is fully realized through Nancy McKeon's characterization.
