Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

L.A. Homicide Detective Peter Decker never wanted the perils of his job to touch his family. But now his two worlds have collided.

A first-year rookie with the LAPD's Hollywood Division, Cynthia Decker became a cop against the wishes of her father, Peter Decker. But police work is in her blood, and she's determined to make it on her own--even now, when her razor-sharp instincts for danger are telling her that something is very wrong . . .

The signs are impossible to ignore: things being moved around in her apartment, the destruction of personal effects. But it's a harrowing trip down a dark canyon road that confirms Cindy's worst fears. Someone fiendishly relentless, and with decidedly evil intentions, is stalking her. And with Peter Decker isolated from her troubles by his own investigation into a disturbing series of car-jackings, it's up to Cindy to find out who in her personal and/or professional life wants her frightened or harmed . . . or dead.

Kellerman has been a member of the board of the Southern California Chapter of the Mystery Writers of America.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2001-05-15)

The excellent performance by veteran narrator Jay O. Sanders enlivens this otherwise uninspired addition to the Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus series. Brash rookie Cynthia Decker, Peter's 25-year-old daughter from his first marriage, and her beat cop co-workers take center stage in this LAPD police procedural. Cynthia's Ivy League degree and ties to the high-ranking Lieutenant Decker alienate her from her comrades in the Hollywood Division. Peter also struggles to view his daughter as a colleague especially when she becomes the target of a stalker.

Much to her father's dismay, a ridiculously headstrong Cynthia tries to solve her own stalking case, exploring possible connections between it, a murder, and the unsolved car-jacking cases her father is investigating. Cynthia's effort to assert herself in her new job overwhelms this abridgment, leaving little else in the way of characterization and action to engage listeners. Public libraries may want to wait for an unabridged version to satisfy Kellerman's many fans. Beth Farrell, Portage Cty. Dist. Lib., OH

Review by Library Journal (2000-08-01)

This is the 12th book in Kellerman's best-selling Peter Decker series (e.g., Jupiter's Bones). This time out, Kellerman features Decker's daughter Cindy, a pretty, smart, and fiercely independent young LAPD cop who is having a tough time being accepted by her male co-workers. One night at Bellini's, the vividly evoked bar that Cindy frequents, she has too much to drink and gets a ride home from Scott Oliver, a handsome detective who works for her father.

When Cindy finds herself being stalked, she sets out to discover what, if anything, her stalker has to do with the car-jacking case that Scott and her father are working on. Cindy is an engaging, believable character, but Kellerman focuses so much attention on her struggle for independence that she fails to develop suspense in either the stalking plot or the budding romance with Scott. Recommended for public libraries where there is interest in the series.
