An explosive new thriller from the bestselling Faye Kellerman featuring LA detective Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus. A plane crashes in unexplained circumstances and the mystery deepens when police investigate. The owners know nothing of the four bodies found in the wreckage. Who are these unidentified passengers? But the biggest question of all comes from a husband frantic with worry. His wife was supposed to be on the plane -- but never boarded it. So why is she still missing? It's a riddle Peter Decker will have to answer quickly if he is to prevent further lives being lost to a case full of Kellerman's trademark twists and shocks.

About the Author:

Born in St. Louis, Faye Kellerman is one of the most highly considered US crime authors. After having grown up in Los Angeles she graduated from dental school with the intention of pursuing a career in the latter, but instead decide to become a writer. Inspired also by her husband's success (Jonathan Kellerman is author of the Alex Delaware series), her first novel, 'The Ritual Bath' (1986) introduced Sergeant Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus. It also won the 1987 Macavity Award for Best First Mystery. Kellerman currently lives in Beverly Hills with her husband and four children.

From AudioFile:

George Guidall is so comfortable performing the Rina Lazarus/Peter Decker series that even first-time listeners will feel right at home. In the sixteenth book featuring the married couple, a plane crash into an apartment building, a missing flight attendant, and the burned remains of a victim murdered over 20 years earlier provide plenty of mystery. Faye Kellerman builds tenderness, intelligence, and normalcy into Rina and Peters Orthodox Jewish family life and their conversations about God, guilt, and sin. She produces a convoluted (if occasionally coincidence-prone) story, but, thanks in part to Guidalls top-notch performance, her characters have the gritty feel of real people. Guidalls pacing, vocal shifts, and delivery of the many Yiddish expressions sprinkled throughout are masterful. This is one listeners wont want to miss.
