of his daughter, Cindy Decker.
finds a newborn in an alley. Cindy feels a connection to the baby
and makes a connection to the male nurse caring for her. Although
not a detective, Cindy wants to find out who the baby belongs to.
Twists and turns lead her to a special young person in need, which
eventually leads to the conclusion of the unspeakable. Daddy Decker
plays the old wise one, and those following the series know he's
earned the title. Decker advises his daughter on how to handle not
only the case, but a shooting she and the male nurse are involved
in. Cindy and her dad make a great team. Let's hope they work together
more in the future.
Street Dreams, readers will be entertained by the police
action, energized by the suspense and truly saddened by an honest
look at racism and shabby treatment of the disabled.
Kellerman is one heck of a writer. Her plots are contemporary, daring
and never-ending, and I'm sure her fans are thrilled about that.
McKeon, known as "Jo" on the Facts of Life and
a regular on the Lifetime drama The Division, is the audio
book narrator. Although she does the reading well, her New York
accent does get in the way at times.
