The desecration of Rina Lazarus and Peter Decker's synagogue leads Peter into a complex investigation of hate crimes, murder, and family secrets. The L.A. detective tracks the source of the crimes through a web of insidious deception. Barrett Whitener unfolds the mystery with care, portraying characters clearly and distinctly. He's particularly good with the teens, including privileged, troubled Ernesto and Decker's son, Jacob. Whitener has a slight Southern softness to his tone that does not always suit some of the Los Angeles characters. His timing and pace, however, will keep listeners on edge throughout the gripping story. R.F.W. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 02]
