Publisher's Summary

The birth of their baby girl has filled Rina Lazarus and her husband, LAPD Homicide Detective Peter Decker, with joy mingled with sorrow, since complications have ensured that they can have no more children. But the situation is grim at the hospital, which has been devastated by severe budget cutbacks and staff shortages. And when a respected nurse vanishes along with a newborn from the nursery, Peter and Rina fear for the safety of their own precious child - especially when the missing nurse's car is found at the bottom of a cliff... with a corpse inside.
A most grievous sin has been committed. In pursuit of justice, Decker - with the help of his tough-as-nails partner, Marge, and an able assist from his teenage daughter, Cindy - follows a twisted path that winds through a sinister maze of hospital politics, misplaced passions, and torturous mind games that can all too easily lead to murder.

Shallow plot, dragged out

Difficult to listen to this entire book. Didn't require any concentration at all. I put this book in the category of a "dime mystery novel" - Narration was good. If you listen to books while doing other tasks requiring concentration, then go ahead and burn a credit. Book seemed to drag on forever. Was sooooooooooo glad when I finished it.

you get your money's worth

I bought this book using the $5.00 sale audible had going on and though I've read plenty of books worse I still have to give it a low rating but only due to the numerous characters that popped up out of nowhere. I guess being a detective novel i maybe should have expected that but so many different ones entered the story out of the blue that I got completely confused at times all the way to the very end. I kept asking myself what have I missed during the first few chapters to not undrestand how this character got involved and "who the heck are they anyway?" The narrator did a good job though.
