Street Dreamsby Faye Kellerman
Synopses & Reviews
An abandoned baby.
A missing mother.
But innocence has a fighting chance.
While on routine patrol, LAPD Officer Cindy Decker rescues a newborn from an alley Dumpster. But she can't call it a night until she sees the infant safe in a hospital, cared for by a professional — in this case a male nurse with soulful eyes and lots of charm. Now the hunt is on for the mother. Armed with advice from her overworked father, Detective Peter Decker, Cindy plunges into her inner-city Hollywood district, a world of helpless people and violent gangs. Pursuing each new lead batters her complex relationships and endangers her life. On one side: Decker and Decker, a brilliant but combative pair. On the other: a vicious killer ready to strike again.
"Kellerman's latest...will please her fans, but is unlikely to make new converts....Others, and Kellerman herself, have done a better job of melding a mystery plot with the challenges of maintaining Jewish identity in the modern world." Publishers Weekly
"Incendiary Cindy rules. Fans of Kellerman won't complain." Kirkus Reviews
"[A] solid whodunit, which is not only an entertaining puzzler but also takes the characters' relationships to a new level....The romance and the dialogue are a tad overdone, but series fans won't be too concerned." Booklist
"Fans of the ongoing Decker saga will find a lot to like in Street Dreams: fast pace, clever plotting and a number of twists. On the down side, it can be a bit daunting for the new reader to sort out the complicated relationships of the characters..." BookPage
"Kellerman is terrific." Newsday
"One of the finest sisters in crime." Los Angeles Times
"A master of mystery." Cleveland Plain Dealer
"No one working in the crime genre is better." Baltimore Sun
"Kellerman is splendid." Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
When LAPD Officer Cindy Decker finds a newborn baby in a Dumpster, the hunt is on for the infant's mother. As Cindy searches the mean streets of inner-city Hollywood, her father, Detective Peter Decker, joins the investigation.
