Long Beach homicide detective Danny Beckett can't escape the pain. It's everywhere: in the injuries that earned him a year-long medical leave; in the suffering of every victim he's ever encountered; in the agony of his past. But he must keep the pain at bay to prove he still has what it takes to do the job. So it's only fitting that his first major case back is a gruesome one: a California congressman's daughter-in-law and grandchildren have been brutally murdered, and the carnage is some of the worst Danny's ever seen. Is it a mob hit? Political retribution? A random sex crime? Nothing quite adds up…until Danny and his partner, Jennifer Tanaka, begin scratching at the surface of the congressman's picture-perfect family. Beneath the shiny, camera-ready veneer, Danny discovers a dark, twisted tale of suffering — even as the pain of his own past threatens to derail the investigation.

How can a shattered ex-cop follow the rules when he's no longer sure of them? For sixteen years, Ben Shepard loyally served the Long Beach Police Department. Then he took a bullet to the head, and his life was shattered. No one expects much of anything from him anymore--except his father, an old man receding into a fog of his own. And except maybe his tenant, Grace, who's been a warm and friendly constant in his and his father's bleak lives. Until the day she vanishes. After an official investigation stalls, Ben moves forward on his own. But stepping into Grace's past--and all she was hiding--is a dangerous move for a man who can't trust his memories from one day to the next. The deeper he gets, the more he has to question whether he's being driven by the gut instincts of a suspicious former cop or by paranoia. Recognizing what's real can save Grace's life. If only he can trust himself to do it...

Obsessed with discovering the true identity of the victim, a gentle vagrant who may have been hiding a tortured past, Danny and his team start to uncover a high-reaching conspiracy that puts them all at risk—and threatens to open new wounds that could cut even deeper than Danny's old ones.

Treating the Changing Family The past quarter century has been a time of historic social and cultural upheaval, and nowhere is that more evident than in the changing face of the family. In an effort to keep pace with the many challenges that confront the modern family in all its varied new forms, this groundbreaking book offers a broad-ranging, carefully integrated review of contemporary trends in family therapy, research, and practice. In Treating the Changing Family, nearly twenty-five distinguished experts from across North America, including psychologists, marriage and family therapists, social workers, and others, reexamine the family and the many contemporary challenges to its function, and provide practical advice for therapists who treat troubled families. Comprehensive in scope, Treating the Changing Family deals with the full array of non-normative events confronting today’s family, including violence and abuse, addiction, long-term and chronic illness (with a special chapter on AIDS in the family), divorce, adoption, trauma, ethnicity, and others. It explores the impact these factors can have on family function and provides intervention strategies and techniques that have proven successful in the treatment of families affected by them. Receiving special attention are the structure, dynamics, and unique problems of families that do not fit the traditional mold. Experts in these areas share their findings and provide clinical guidelines for treating bi-nuclear, single-parent, gay and lesbian, and other nontraditional families. Offering the combined knowledge and expertise of some of the nation’s foremost researchers and practitioners in their fields, Treating the Changing Family: Handling Normative and Unusual Events is a valuable resource for couples and family therapists, counselors, clinical psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, and all mental health professionals who treat today’s changing family.
