Read full description of the books False Prophet:3.8. Settling into life as a family, Peter and Rina Decker are back in this latest installment of their series. We find Rina six months pregnant, and the entire family is eagerly anticipating the baby's arrival. Cindy is even going to stay with the family for the summer to help out. Meanwhile, Peter and Marge have requested a transfer to work homicide in the Devonshire station alongside new colleague Scott Oliver. Before all these changes occur; however, a rape and burglary occur right in the Deckers' backyard, and Peter and Marge are assigned to the case.
In this case we enter the lifestyles of the rich and famous. Lilac Brecht is the daughter of actress Davida Eversong and director Hermann Brecht. The only girl with three half siblings, Lilah has always been the light for both her parents. Now she runs a day spa to cater to the women of the upper echelon of society. Always accustomed to getting whatever they want, both Lilah and Davida come across as spoiled. With this case occurring right after Rodney King and featuring many high profile characters, the LAPD does not want too much publicity. It is up to Peter and Marge to keep the force out of the limelight or at least in a positive light.
As the case unravels, all the players keep playing off one another, blackmail and all. Meanwhile, Peter questions his abilities as a father because it is always a stretch to balance work and home life. This mystery might not be at quite the level as the previous installments but it is a quick whodunit nonetheless. With the baby's arrival imminent, Cindy's appearance for the summer, and more from Scott Oliver in future books, I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
