Called to investigate the shocking murder of a high-school student, Detective Sergeant Pete Decker finds himself face to face with a world of casual drunkenness, sex and, it seems, violence – the world of suburban Los Angeles’s affluent, rootless teenagers. And, as the father of a nineteen year old daughter, Decker must deal not only with the brutality of the killing but with his own parental terror.

I just really enjoy reading her Decker series, plenty of twists and turns without being terrifying to read.  Plenty of suspense in this one, while we can seem as sure as his friend is that he is not guilty of the murder, you do have to wonder if the main character really did it.
