Overview

In her work for the Ventura County Probation Department, Carolyn Sullivan interviews the most dangerous, depraved criminals - and Raphael Moreno is at the top of the list. The hardened street thug has been convicted in a series of gruesome and baffling murders, including the decapitation of his own mother. For the first time, Carolyn is face-to-face with a criminal who truly frightens her. But things are about to get much hotter - and much deadlier for Carolyn. A phone call from her brother, Neil, propels her into a nightmare.

A popular bachelor and successful artist, Neil has discovered the body of his girlfriend, Laurel, floating in his swimming pool. When her death is ruled a homicide, Neil becomes the prime suspect. But he has an alibi - he was in bed with Melody Asher, a seductive party girl and heiress. Their torrid affair is as steamy as it is addictive, a twisted game of manipulation and sexual blackmail. When Melody refuses to back up Neil’s story, the sensitive brother Carolyn thought she knew suddenly seems like a complete stranger. And then the most shattering news surfaces: Blood found in Neil’s expensive new car links him to Raphael Moreno and his unthinkable crimes. As the evidence against Neil mounts, Carolyn is forced to ask herself troubling questions. Is he an innocent victim, or could he be hiding a darker side, a sinister streak that connects him to the brutal murders of nine people? Could the brother she loves actually be a cold-hearted, ruthless killer?

The key to everything seems to be Moreno, but getting inside his head is a treacherous game. As the danger grows and shocking secrets are revealed, a shaken Carolyn must find the courage to make the ultimate decision - whether to risk the lives of innocent people or save herself and those she loves most.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
First introduced in Sullivan's Law, Ventura County probation officer Carolyn Sullivan is put to the test again as the body count-and list of suspects-quickly rises in Rosenberg's latest confidently plotted thriller. This 3o-something single mom with a narrow waist and wide-ranging intelligence has a special gift for getting perps to talk, and two days before Christmas, she faces an especially frightening inmate, Raphael Moreno, who decapitated his own mother, killed his sister and decimated a family of five. Though he's not talking, she thinks he had an accomplice. Before she has a chance to fully crack Moreno, however, the plot thickens: late that night, her younger brother, Neil, a meth addict but also a successful artist, calls for help, having just discovered his girlfriend Laurel's body floating in his swimming pool. Though Neil will be considered a suspect, his alibi, a rich, conniving, sexually avid ex-girlfriend who lured him into bed that night, refuses to clear his name. Soon, another woman is murdered just a few blocks from Neil's house, raising the prospect of serial killing, and a full-scale investigation begins to link the homicides to Moreno's case. Thriller enthusiasts will relish the intricate plot, accelerating action and novel climax of this gripping ride. Agent, Arthur Klebanoff. (May) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    Disappointing

    So many authors seem to be paid by the word once they become popular. I have read several Nancy Taylor Rosenberg novels..this was far from her best. Carolyn reads like superwoman but then makes ridiculous mistakes and choices for someone in her position. Her last act in this book takes the proverbial cake..after agonizing over whether to expose herself to the scary Moreno again(being a single mom after all)she drives a Ferrari......oops..don't want to ruin the ending for those who forge ahead and read this one..

    Sullivan's Justice a huge disappointment

    The plot of this novel is disjointed, as if it had been written by a committee, with each member writing a chapter. It is overloaded with unnecessary details, and reads more like a romance novel than a mystery. It was a big disappointment!

    Totally uperb

    Ventura County probation officer Carolyn Sullivan has an uncanny knack for getting prisoners to confess to her whey they won¿t speak to anyone else. She uses what they say to insure the judge gives them the maximum amount of prison time. Her latest subject is Raphael Moreno who was convicted of second degree murder in the deaths of his mother, sister and a family of five, one of which was a six month old baby. She plans to talk to him but her boss conducts the interview instead and winds up hospitalized........................ Carolyn gets sidetracked by her brother Neil, who saw the body of Laurel the woman he loves and planned to marry floating in his pool. The police think he killed her by lethal injection but Carolyn knows he couldn¿t hurt anyone. Another woman in the neighborhood was also killed by the lethal injection containing the same chemicals used to kill Laurel. When tests are done on her brother¿s car, blood is found that matches that of Raphael Moreno. The police want to find the link between the two men and ask Carolyn to talk Moreno again, a situation that almost leads too costing the probation officer her life................... There are many mystery and thriller writers that this reviewer admires for the work they produce with Nancy Taylor Rosenberg at the top of the must read list. Her latest tale is superb. There is plenty of action, the storyline is fast paced and there are enough suspects that readers have a good time wondering who the killer might be including considering the sibling. The heroine, who first appeared in SULLIVAN¿S LAW, is a valiant warrior in the fight against crime. ....................... Harriet Klausner
