Street Dreams Paperback
When Cindy Decker finds a new-born baby in a rubbish bin, she can't imagine who would commit such a crime.
Surely abandoning a baby is the biggest taboo of motherhood?
The usual suspects - prostitutes, homeless women and drug abusers - aren't responsible. In fact, the culprit is a woman who appears almost as vulnerable as her own baby.
As the case continues, Cindy realises she's in deep - her own life in danger - and there's only one person who can help, her father and boss, Lieutenant Peter Decker.
They both know the key to a successful investigation is keeping a cool, professional head, but with a father and daughter detective team, can it ever be anything other than personal?

Review by cajela
Faye Kellerman's detective Pete Decker is joined in this one by his daughter Cindy, now also a police officer. The story is partly written in her first person perspective. She rescues a newborn baby from a dumpster, and the hunt is on to find the parents. It's a grim tale of dirty mean LA streets, gang rape, murder, and abuse of the mentally handicapped, but it's lightened by the cheerful soap opera of Decker's happy family of observant Jews, and Cindy's new love interest.
