Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus face a familiar sociopath in this electrifying new tale of suspense from NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author Faye Kellerman.
Obsessive and duty-bound, LAPD Lieutenant Peter Decker reluctantly agrees to do a big favour for old friend, Teresa McLaughlin, knowing full-well that it will bring her sociopathic husband, Chris Donatti, back into his life. When Terry goes missing, and Donatti's disappearance follows, their 14-year-old son Gabe has no one to turn to except Peter and his wife, Rina Lazarus.

With lives hanging in the balance, both at home and at work, Decker and his team need to find answers and fast. Since Donatti is still at loose, no one can ever be really safe ...
