2 1 y separately published work icon Splinter Michael MacConnell , ( trans. Rainer Schumacher with title Glassplitter : Thriller ) Cologne : Bastei Lübbe , 2010 Z1514044 2008 single work novel crime detective 'Sarah Reilly just brought down one of America's worst serial killers. Her father, FBI legend Harry Reilly, was kidnapped during the investigation, and the man she loved was murdered. Refusing offers of extended leave, Sarah launches herself back into her work in the Boston FBI field office. But the murder of a child in California sees her and her new partner assigned to a special taskforce to investigate. It's a high-profile case. The parents are famous, wealthy and, it seems, they are holding information back. The media and public sympathy that initially was directed to them at their son's senseless murder has turned to suspicion. The whispers about their guilt are growing. Sarah is right in the middle, looking for the truth, and she isn't going to let PR spin doctors or the LAPD get in her way. The taskforce, led by Sarah, starts to uncover evidence of something bigger than a domestic homicide. It seems over a number of years someone has been coldly and brutally extorting wealthy West Coast families. Whoever is behind the crimes is a master manipulator who will stop at nothing to evade capture. Sarah, haunted by her past and faced with the murder of another young boy.' (Publisher's blurb)
