The review of this Book prepared by Alexandra Cossaboom

The lead character (Cindy Decker) is stalked by another police officer who believes that she has linked him to a murder and related carjackings. The book rather tediously guides one towards the climax where the stalkers identity is revealed.
The review of this Book prepared by Kathy Sims

Faye Kellerman's book introduces a new character Cindy Decker. She is a rookie cop in the LAPD's Hollywood Division. She senses that she is being watch but really isn't sure. So many other things are going with her job,she ignores her feelings. This book has alot of thing going on. A car jacking ring. A couple of murders. A the good old boys club in the police force.
The book is a little slow moving but soon the plot and all the sub plot come together.
