When you're the wife of a cop, all it takes is a single
phone call from the police to send your heart reeling. But
after learning that her husband and children are safe,
Rina Lazarus's fright turns to fury. Someone has viciously
vandalized the storefront temple where Rina and her family
worship. And though years of living with religious
intolerance should have steeled her, Rina quickly summons
her husband, Detective Lieutenant Peter Decker, to find
and arrest the culprit.
Not surprisingly, it's just a boy who claims
responsibility for the crime. But something about the
confession of Ernesto Golding, the 17-year-old scion of

service and counseling that he receives, leaves Decker

It isn't long before Decker has more to worry about than
another troubled teen spiraling out of control. Only weeks
after entering counseling, Ernesto and his therapists are
brutally murdered. And their deaths are only the beginning.
Now what seemed like and open-and-shut case has turned far
deadlier that anyone could have imagined. And as the body

themselves thrust into the world of the nouveau riche,
where hate and greed lie just beneath the surface of a
glittering facade, twisted minds admire winning above all
else, and a child's academic success is the ultimate
Because in a world as perverted as this, the desire to be
the best has driven otherwise good parents to do very bad
things, leaving them and their families at the mercy of a
killer who has his own reasons for needing to succeed. Few
can resist the lure of his attractively disguised promise.
None can hide from his psychopathic reach. And this time,
not even Decker's own stepson will emerge unscarred from
the search for a killer.
