Synopses & Reviews
High school senior Chris Whitman confessed to murdering his girlfriend to spare beautiful, vulnerable Terry McLaughlin from having to testify at his trial. Years later, when the truth set Chris free, he married Terry, changed his name to Donatti . . . andbecame a professional killer. Now Terrys missing, Donattis disappeared—and their teenage son, Gabe, has no one to turn to except his mothers friend, LAPD Detective Peter Decker, and Deckers wife, Rina Lazarus.
The last thing Decker wants is Terrys sociopathic husband back in his world. And the hunt for Terry must share center stage with another case when a young nurses body is found hanging from the rafters at a construction site. Caught between two troubling investigations and an increasingly precarious home life, Decker and Rina must make a difficult decision about sheltering Terrys son . . . even as the shadow of a serial killer falls across their own imperiled family.
