An explosive new thriller from the bestselling Faye Kellerman featuring LA detective Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus.

At 8.15am, a small green suburb of Los Angeles is turned into a fiery inferno by a commuter plane crash, plunging the city's emergency services into a major crisis.

A month later, one mystery from the wreckage still remains unsolved. A woman's body - initially thought to be a stewardess - is instead revealed to be an undiscovered homicide, decades old. Who is this nameless victim? And why is the stewardess still missing?

As they begin to unravel years of deception, Lieutenant Peter Decker and his team come closer and closer to the shocking truth – and a confrontation with a vicious killer.

    Much to like about this many layered story
  • The Burnt House

    By IzzieBear100
    I enjoyed this book, one I could put down and pick up at any time. The linkages between cases were a little far fetched but overall a good story line that made excellent bed time reading.
  • Completely average

    This novel is full of grammatical errors. The author also has a weird predilection to not write god, but G-d? The storyline could be interesting but becomes far fetched and dragged down by the most inane, mundane and boring everyday chat. Also, the ending isn't properly explained. Just summarised. Must've ran out of space with all the banter about paperwork in a police station.
