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?

Bruno, May I suggest you re-read the paragraph? This, I'm sure is an observation of Decker's first impression of Farina's husband, Jason. HE works out, NOT Decker. Jason is "well bult".

On Stalker by Kellerman, on pag. 7, in the middle, there is a small sentence which seems to me wrong:
"Jason worked out". It should be Decker not Jason, unless I did'nt catch the proper meaning of worked out. Is there any one who can help me.

Julie, As far as I can Tell, Justice was the start of Terry & Chris and Peter,try to read it, I'm sure you will then understand the bitterness Donatti holds for Peter.

Kay, I don't think she's is portrayed as "too tough" when one considers the mental and emotional adjustments one must make to deal with the strain being a police officer must entail. They see the worst of the worst that humanity has to offer. And even more so when one is a police officer in LA. I would think that this toughness would be a requirement. Julie, I'll check back and post if someone doesn't get to it before me. Bruno, CAPS refers to the division in the LA Police that focus on "Crimes Against Persons" and GTA refers to the division that deals with "Grand Theft Auto." And you're right about the "Dees."

on page 9 of "Stalker" there are two acronyms "CAPS and GTA" of which I need the meaning. There is also "Dees" which, if I'm right, may mean Detectives.
Is anyone there who can help?

I have just finished my first Faye Kellerman audiobook - Stone Kiss. In which previous book does the author cover the story of Chris, Terri and Peter? Thank you

I have one gripe, though. I think the author's making Peter's daughter a bit too "tough". The idea is that she is too like her father but, I don't think he was that cynical & hard-hearted. Just my opinion, folks. Take care. Kay in Kirkuk
