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.

Faye Kellerman lives with her husband,New York Timesbestselling author Jonathan Kellerman, in Los Angeles, California, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
