Publisher's Summary

The brutal murder of Dr. Azor Sparks in an alley behind a restaurant is greeted with public outrage and a demand for swift, sure justice. But the investigation into the well-known surgeon's death is raising too many questions and providing too few answers for homicide detective Lieutenant Peter Decker.
Why, for example, would the family of a man so beloved respond to his slaying with more surprise than grief? And what linked a celebrated doctor with strict fundamentalist beliefs to a gang of outlaw bikers? But the most unsettling connection of all is the one that ties the tormented Sparks family to Peter Decker's own - and the secrets shared by a renegade Catholic priest... and Decker's wife, Rina Lazarus.

When you find a series you like, after a while a new installment feels like catching up with old friends. I always want to know what Peter and Rina are up to and I think I would enjoy a whole book with just a development in their story.

Having said that, I did not care for this episode. It was so incredibly dated, and I think was trying to be shocking with no substance - therefore was just salacious instead of suspenseful.

- Simone "Follow me on Goodreads too!"

Mediocre at best.

Too many characters and rather outdated. The beginning of the book mentions doctor television shows that haven't existed since I was a child. Sounds petty but that's very important to me when listening or reading a book that the author keep the information present.

I apologize to all her fans but this book, I didn't like. I downloaded another $5.00 book written by Ms. Kellerman so we'll see how this one goes.

The narrator was very good.
