Nicely written. Good character development. Sometimes the double story got a bit confusing.

Call me "soft" but this was my favorite Decker story so far. ( )

This was a good book but a bit drawn out in the middle. They went really indepth in the middle during parts of the book and then flew through the ending. Overall I would recommend this book for others who enjoy a good who done it?! ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
To Jonathan, my on-the-spot editor and shrink
And a very special thanks to Bill Kurtis for all his help
First words
At eight-fifteen in the morning on a balmy Los Angeles winter's day, a 282 Lucent Industries Aircraft, better known as WestAir flight 1324, took off from Burbank Airport holding forty-seven commuters.
Quotations
One word of caveat. If you or your experts find a large amount of blood loss on a cushion of a couch or a chair, or on the bed, without any concomitant spatter to go with it, please proceed with caution. Men tend to forget that we woman sometimes leak during our periods. You don't want to arrest the man because Roseanne wore a faulty Tampex. [Said by judge issuing police a search warrant.]
Decker often wondered about the exact purpose of exercise. If it was just to elevate the heart rate, there were lots of other ways to do that without spending mind-numbing hours killing one's feet on a treadmill: sex, stress, and caffeine instantly came to mind.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061227366, Mass Market Paperback)

At 8:15 A.M., a small commuter plane carrying forty-seven passengers crashes into an apartment building in Granada Hills, California. Among the dead inside the plane's charred and twisted wreckage are the unidentified bodies of four extra travelers. And there's no sign of an airline employee whose name was on the passengers list.

L.A.P.D. Detective Peter Decker and his wife, Rina, are profoundly shaken by this terrible "accident" that has occurred frighteningly close to their daughter's school. And an irate call from the unaccounted-for flight attendant's stepfather further tangles an already twisted mystery. The man insists twenty-eight-year-old Roseanne Dresden was never on the doomed flight, but was probably murdered by her abusive, unfaithful husband—a revelation that propels Decker down a path of tragic history and deadly lies toward an unimaginable evil that will challenge his and Rina's cherished beliefs about guilt and innocence and justice.
