As a lieutenant in the LAPD, homicide detective Peter Decker doesn't get many calls at 3 a.m. Someone has broken into the exclusive Coyote Ranch compound of billionaire developer Guy Kaffey and viciously gunned him down, along with his wife and four employees. A well-known figure on both the business and society pages, Kaffey, with his sons and his younger brother, Mace, built most of the shopping malls in Southern California and earned a reputation for philanthropy, donating millions to worthy causes. It doesn't take long for Peter and the rest of his homicide team to figure out that the gruesome killings must be an inside job.
Decker is plenty busy-and plenty thankful not to have to worry about his wife, Rina Lazarus, getting caught up in this deadly case. But then a chance encounter with a court translator who needs her help leads Rina into the terrifying heart of her husband's murder investigations.
