Decker and his team must work to find the missing flight attendant, as well as identify the body found under the rubble of the apartment building. There is very little glitz and glamour, and most of the work is a hard slog. This is a good addition to the Peter Decker series. Ak to nie je ona, kto je to? It tried to teach some morals every now and then but failed as the police officer kept on discussing with his wife the cases he was investigating. The problem is, there is no evidence to back any of it. I bit a reality here though it doesn't leave you feeling unsatisfied. As for the unidentified woman.
As they begin to unravel years of deception, Lieutenant Peter Decker and his team come closer and closer to the shocking truth - and a confrontation with a vicious killer. Good book for reading on a plane. An added bonus is that it, like many paperbacks lately, has a chapter at the end from the next book in the series, The Mercedes Coffin. And there's no sign of an airline employee whose name was on the passengers list. But to be honest, as I got into the book, I forgot that it was written by a female. Why then is she still missing? A plane carrying 40 odd passengers crashes into a residential area of Los Angeles.
I love her characters - their funny quirks and annoying characteristics make them entirely believable and real. The book is so well-written, combining police procedure with family life, that I felt completely at home with the characters.

The characters are excellently written and so vivid that you forget this is a novel and the relationships between those characters are brilliantly developed. Who is this nameless victim? Instead, he claims, she was most likely murdered by her abusive, unfaithful husband. The book is fast-paced and captivating.
The book is an airport page-turner for god sake, not Chaucer and your sanctimonious comments are not appreciated. After all the bodies have bee The author is among my favorite mystery writers because I appreciate the way she balances violence with ordinary busy family life. It is a fun who-done-it, not on the order of Agatha Christie fun, but a good story, well written, with a good ending. By the reviews , I take it she has some better. I also enjoy the bits and pieces about the Jewish faith that are interspersed all the way through the book. When Decker agonizes over a case, you feel for him, and when he makes headway in it, you are included in his rejoicing.
It brought back memories of my trips there. I had high hopes going into this book, considering it is a popular mystery series and a well known author, but I was somewhat disappointed that the mystery aspect of the book did not grab me and hold my attention. Surprisingly, tests show that the body is not from the crash at all, but is a body that has been buried in the building for some time. So who are these unidentified passengers? I may read more of her books, but may not. Her teeth - what's left of them - don't match up with the dental records of Roseanne Dresden, though, and now Decker and his officers have their work compounded for them.

It added something special to the novel, for me at least. Release date Aug 07, 2007. It's a long, winding path to uncover clues, evidence and suspects in both cases. I look forward to more books by this author.
As a writer, this makes me curious. The newspaper has her listed as being on the doomed flight but her father is adamant that though she is probably dead, she was never on that flight but was in fact killed by her husband. The dust jacket for hard covers may not be included. The Burnt House was a great read. The author does a nice job of tying together two seemingly unrelated homicides.
Instead of one missing persons and possible murder case to solve, now they have two. Under intense pressure from the department to come up with answers, Decker launches an investigation that carries him down a path of tragic history, dangerous secrets, and deadly liesand leads him to the corpse of a three-decades-missing murder victim. But the fate of the unaccounted-for flight attendant—twenty-eight-year-old Roseanne Dresden—remains a question mark more than a month after the horrific event, when the young woman's irate stepfather calls, insisting that she was never onboard the doomed plane.
