Review by

The 16th Decker novel and the 2nd I have read. An interesting (albiet improbable) plot line involves an unidentifed body found (unearthed?) following a horrific plane crash and a missing stewardess who may or may not have been on the flight. An enjoyable read if not both a little predictable. the interesting part of the Decker series is the lead detective's healthy home life - this is clearly an important part of his character according to Kellerman but felt fairly 1 dimensional to me and as such dissapointed
