From Library Journal
This is another engrossing mystery in Kellerman's series featuring Rina and Peter Decker. While preoccupied with the birth of their first baby, a daughter, the couple are perturbed to learn of the disappearance of another newborn from the hospital nursery. While Rina recovers from the birthing, Peter sets out with his partner to investigate the events surrounding the missing baby girl. Chief suspect in the crime is a hard-working but stern nurse in the maternity ward who is also missing. This is a well-balanced tale, engaging the listener in an intricate plot and the details of the personal lives and relationships of the main characters. The reading by Buck Schirner is moderately paced, enabling the listener to absorb the author's detailed descriptions of characters, settings, and action. Recommended for mystery and general fiction collections.

Unlike some other crime solving couples in literature, Peter and Rina often don't work together on the crime. Peter is the detective and his colleagues do most of the detecting. Rina provides consult and insight in the process, and is sometimes personally involved in the story.
This story centers around a missing baby, in a situation where Rina herself has just given birth, with complications. Cindy, Peter's daughter from a first marriage, plays an important role in both the mystery and the family life.
I enjoy the relationship between Cindy and Decker, especially as she is nearing the time she actually becomes a cop.
Keep writing these books and I'll keep reading them.
Thanks for the opportunity to get into the stories and get some quiet time.
