"A well-tangled web of intrigue and murder."
"Kellerman invariably rides high in the bestseller lists…Blindman's Bluff shows why."
-St. Louis Post-Dispatch
One of the popular couples in contemporary crime fiction, LAPD homicide detective Peter Decker and his wife Rina Lazarus are back in Blindman's Bluff-and placed in harm's way in the wake of a horrific home invasion and brutal multiple murder. Author Faye Kellerman, whose novels perennially live on the New York Times bestseller list, proves once again that "no one working in the crime genre is better" (Baltimore Sun) with this twisty, surprising shocker.
A 3 A.M. phone call summons LAPD homicide detective Peter Decker to the well-fortified Coyote Ranch compound of billionaire developer Guy Kaffey. A grisly scene awaits: Kaffey and his wife dead, gunned down along with four employees. A philanthropist known for extending second chances to delinquents-many of whom he had hired for his personal security-the wealthy businessman died badly in what had to be an inside job. Perhaps even deeper inside than anyone imagines.
At first the darkness enveloping this horrific multiple murder cannot touch Decker's wife, Rina Lazarus, who's serving on a jury in an L.A. courthouse. But a chance meeting and a request for help from a court translator is leading Rina straight into the heart of her husband's investigation-and directly into the path of relentless, cold-blooded killers.
