Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus face a familiar sociopath in this electrifying new tale of suspense from New York Times bestselling author Faye Kellerman. When LAPD Lieutenant Peter Decker reluctantly agrees to do a big favour for old friend Teresa McLaughlin, he knows that his involvement will bring her sociopathic husband, Chris Donatti, back into his life. But then Terry goes missing and Donatti disappears, leaving their 14-year-old son Gabe behind.
Meanwhile Adrianna Blanc, a party-loving nurse, is found swinging from the rafters of a house in a wealthy suburban area. Her last phone call announced she was breaking up with her philandering boyfriend and Decker questions whether it was in fact suicide. With lives hanging in the balance, Decker and his team need to find answers fast. At home matters are just as precarious: while Decker and his wife Rina Lazarus want to look after young Gabe, with Donatti on the loose, no one is really ever safe...

"Kellerman is an excellent writer." (The Times)
After listening to a few crime audiobooks that left me feeling unsatisfied this was a welcome change with proper detective work, a good plot and characters I felt connected to. All in all an excellent listen. I'd certainly recommend it.
I am a big fan of Faye Kellerman and this story did not disappoint, however it took all my efforts to finish the book as the narrator made the whole book seem like an Enid Blyton adventure. The reading style is very twee with lots of almost false affectations between the characters. When reading this does not come across at all but when being read to by this narrator is was gringe making. Beware.
