9780060750886: False Prophet (Peter Decker & Rina Lazarus Novels)

Even to case-hardened Detective Sergeant Pete Decker the brutal rape of Lilah Brecht, exquisite daughter of an aged Hollywood movie queen, is a disturbing act of violence. The only leads are provided by Lilah herself. However, Lilah's credibility is soon shattered when it emerges that she didn't physically see her rapist. It was only her 'gift' of second sight that enable her to 'image' her attacker. She claims that Decker is the only policeman who can truly understand and catch her attacker, who, she says, is still threatening her. Decker, however, is not so sure and is anxious to protect his heavily pregnant wife Rina from Lilah's alternately seductive and hysterical phone calls. But when Decker himself sees Lilah almost killed in a freak accident, he begins to think he may have judged her too harshly...

Product Description:

When Lilah Brecht, the beautiful if unstable owner of a popular health spa, is found beaten, raped, and robbed in her own home, L.A. detective Peter Decker takes the case. His heart goes out to Lilah, who doesn't make it easy.

Lilah claims to have psychic powers, which Decker finds difficult to believe. And when a family member is murdered, he gets the distinct impression that Lilah, her faded actress-mother, and even her brothers are all keeping secrets--and starring in their own home movie of deception and deadly betrayal. . . .
