Publisher's Summary

In the silent pre-dawn city hours - alone with his thoughts about Rina Lazarus, the woman he loves, 3,000 miles away in New York - L.A.P.D. detective Peter Decker finds a small child, abandoned and covered in blood that is not his. It is a sobering discovery, and a perplexing one, for nobody in the development where she was found steps forward to claim the little girl. Obsessed more deeply by this case than he imagined possible, Decker is determined to follow the scant clues to an answer.But his trail is leading him to a killing ground where four bodies lie still and lifeless. And by the time Rina returns, Peter Decker is already held fast in a sticky mass of hatred, passion, and murder - in a world where intense sweetness is accompanied by a deadly sting.


Audible Editor Reviews

Mitch Greenberg adopts a straightforward, down-to-earth narrative tone for Faye Kellerman's third outing in the Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus mystery series. While out for a late night walk and worrying whether or not Orthodox Jewish widow Rina Lazarus will marry him, Decker comes upon a 2-year-old, out alone, covered in blood and bee stings. Greenberg uses subtle vocal changes to distinguish minor characters from one another and is especially effective with women's and toddler's voices. His New York City and Yiddish accents are spot-on, and, as the mystery of the child's identity unfolds, Greenberg keeps the humanity real and the tension high.

Better Decker and triple plots

Decker has only one hard-to-believe adult temper tantrum in Milk and Honey. This time we actually get an explanation of where his toddler behavior comes from. Furthermore, Rina has a much more appropriate response, rather than her erstwhile passive love-struck attitude. We also observe his receipt of some down-and-dirty anger management.

Finally, we get to know Marge better through her adoption of her own case and we meet a fascinating character from Decker's past. The intertwined plots are kept identifiable as are the numerous criminals and victims. Mitch Greenberg's narration is partially responsible for the clear separation of distinct personalities. There are a couple of female voices that are a bit jarring, but I am glad that I stuck with the first two books to get to this one.
