A Peter Decker/Rina Lazarus Novel.
'It was the stunned, pale look of bad news . . .'
The call was brief but to the point. There has been a murder in the family of Lieutenant Decker's half brother, rabbi Jonathan Levine. His brother-in-law, Ephraim Lieber, a Hassidic Jew and former drug addict, was found naked in a seedy Manhattan hotel, a single gunshot wound to his head. And his niece, fifteen-year-old Shaynda, is missing.
Jonathan pleads with his policeman brother to come to New York to help the family. Reluctantly, Decker agrees, taking his wife, Rina, and their young daughter with him for company. But soon after arriving on the East Coast Decker is infuriated to discover that Shaynda's parents have changed their minds about involving him in the case.
Faced with a hostile family, a city in which he's a stranger and a local police force mired in international problems, Decker is on his own. Moving from the darkened slums of New Jersey to the deserted industrial streets of New York, he is thrust into a world divided mercilessly into killers and victims.
And Decker must decide which he wants to be . . . ISBN: 9780747265382 Publication Date: 13 / 03 / 2003 Pages: 512 Dimensions: 112 x 180 x 31mm
