I enjoyed The Burnt House but I raced to the end to see how Beth's body got under the three story apartment house that was hit by Westair Flight #1324. Who put it there? When did it get there? Who transported it there?

I've been reading The Forgotten off and on, so must have missed something. Why did Darrell Holt kill first Ernesto and Tarpin, then the Balwins?

Bruno, you're right, DUI means Driving Under the Influence (of something usually intoxicating or debilitating). Some jurisdictions use the term DWI, which means Driving While Intoxicated. And BAL refers to Blood Alcohol Level. It is recorded in milligrams of alcohol per 100 milliliters of blood, or milligrams percent. For example, a BAL of .10 means that 1/10 of 1 percent (or 1/1000) of your total blood content is alcohol. In most states in the US of A a BAL of 0.08% is enough to have oneself outfitted in a nice orange jumpsuit and picking up trash along highways or cutting grass at government owned facilities. This is known as "Community Service" (and is the sentence for most 1st offenders).

Hello, I don't think Rina is that troublesome a character. I feel that we just don't have as much insight into her as a person as we do others. I hope we will see more of Terry and Chris in the future. I would like to see Chris saved as a person. A normal life for Terry, Chris and their son. But Chris maybe too damaged to hope for that. Also, Cindy and Koby are a powerful couple together. Happy Reading

I just wanted to know if anyone else out there thinks that Rena Decker is the most annoying character ever written. She comes off as incredibly self-righteous and not at all appreciative of Peter and her sons do not appreciate all he does either. What does Peter get out of this relationship?

many thanks for RTO. Another question for you. On Stalker, page 84, there are DUI and BAL. I may understand they have something to do with Driving-U-I and B-Alcohol-L; can you tell me the whole meaning.
Thanks a lot

Bruno, RTO stands for radio telephone operator in LAPD-speak. It is used to refer to the police dispatch operators who handle calls directly to patrol vehicles to coordinate the use of the police force in-service in the field at any given time. Hi Sheila.

Sorry Bruno but that's "cop" talk to me,and as I'm not from the U.S. I am not over familiar with the abbreviations I just read a novel whole for enjoyment without analysing it page by page otherwise it just wouldn't get read. Over to the experts, how about you John DeG.?

on Stalker by Faye Kellerman, chapter 2,pag. 13, ther's an anacronym: RTO. It should be some kind of Radio TXX Operator. Can you tell me what's the whole stands for?
