Sacred and Profane
by Faye Kellerman
Los Angeles Police Detective Peter Decker is camping in the foothills above L.A. with two young friends--the sons of Rina Lazarus--when the older boy stumbles on a truly horrifying sight: two charred human skeletons.

A forensic dentist determines that the victims were teenage girls. Decker, the father himself of a sixteen-year-old daughter, throws himself emotionally and professionally into the murder case. But the difficult investigation begins to pull him in two opposing directions: one toward a genteel suburban family; the other into the terrifying crack dens of Hollywood Boulevard. . .

The Blue Religion
by Michael Connelly
Taking us from smoggy Los Angeles to the woods of Idaho from Hawaii at the turn of the twentieth century to the post-Civil War frontier these riveting stories trace the perils and occasional triumphs of lawmen and -women who put themselves in harm's way to face down the bad guys. Some of them even walk the edge of becoming bad guys themselves. In T. Jefferson Parker's "Skinhead Central" an ex-cop and his wife find unexpected menace in the idyllic setting they have chosen for their retirement. In Alafair Burke's "Winning" a female officer who is attacked in the line of duty must protect her own husband from his worst impulses. In Michael Connelly's "Father's Day" Harry Bosch faces one of his most emotionally trying cases, investigating a young boy's death. These are hard-hitting thrilling, and utterly unforgettable stories from some of the best writers in the mystery world.
