Summoned to investigate the murder of a high school prom queen, LAPD detective Sergeant Peter Decker is immersed in a rootless world where young lives are punctuated by mindless sex, illicit drugs, and tenuous links to reality. When a prime suspect is identified, Decker has the feeling that the case has not been exhaustively covered--certain facts just don't add up.
The cruel and bizarre slaying of a beautiful teen leads Detective Decker into the dark heart of an exotic subculture: the seamy, sometimes violent world of Southern California's rootless, affluent youth. But even the confession of a disturbed kid with cold killer eyes cannot soothe Decker's inner torment. For he knows in his gut this crime goes much deeper and higher than anyone expects -- and that true justice, brutal and complete, has yet to be done.
