Kellerman's original series about LAPD Detective Peter Decker has given birth to a new generation in which daughter Cindy follows in dad's footsteps. In this second of the series, young Decker finds a baby in a dumpster. Her search for the baby's parents leads to a developmentally disabled mother who was raped, a father who may have been murdered, and a gang that wants to get Decker off the case by putting her permanently out of commission. Still, Decker finds time to meet a near-perfect man, have wild sex, and deal with personal issues. Decker is fully realized through Nancy McKeon's characterization. Other characters are strongly individualized, and McKeon's Ethiopian accent, when called upon, is lovely. Yes, it does seem too good to be true, but who cares? It's all deeply satisfying. E.S.
