Description
The battered body of a young woman is found floating in the still waters of a city canal. Police suspect a serial killer, which makes it a case for the newly formed Serious Crime Squad. Not Charlie Resnick's case, then; not his worry.But soon another body is found, and this time Charlie has a personal interest. His lover, Hannah, knew the murdered woman - knew, too, that her husband was insanely jealous. And very free with his fists. Arguing that her friend was the victim of domestic abuse, not the target of some serial killer, Hannah persuades Charlie to take on the case.In his ninth venture into urban mayhem, Resnick tackles the all-too-common problem of spousal violence. Investigating the murder, he runs head-on into deeply disturbing questions about the nature of love, about the relationship of abuser and abused, and about our complicity in our own destruction.

display_descriptionThis is the story of Rachel Glenn. She is, in almost every respect, an ordinary young college woman living in Los Angeles in the year 2018. She is the product of a broken home, a marginal Catholic who rarely if ever attends Mass, and attends UC Northridge on a combinations of loans and grants. Until her twenty-first birthday, it could be said that she had a bright--if rather uneventful--future ahead of her. It takes only a few hours to turn her life completely upside down. She becomes the unwitting victim of a devastating crime that ultimately leaves her totally confused, pregnant, homeless and without hope. In the moment of her deepest dispair she receives an offer to start a new life in a sanctuary for unwed mothers. This is a home sponsored by a mysterious man from her past. even in this protected environment, she continues to be plagued by a series of unfortunate events. Rachel Glenn overcomes her almost impossible situation when she finds strength in her newly restored faith. With the assistance of some very influential and supportive Christian friends she emerges a woman transformed.
