Reviews of Street Dreams (2003)

Review by mojosmom (2004-08-23)
A Peter Decker/RIna Lazarus book, but the protagonist this time is Decker's daughter, Cynthia, also a police officer, who has ambitions to become a detective. When she finds an abandoned baby in a dumpster, she sets out to track down the developmentally disabled mother, suspecting that the child may have been the product of a rape.

The focus is the father-daughter relationship, as Decker learns to appreciate his daughter's abilities and accept her choice of profession, and she learns to appreciate his experience and expertise.

The writing is up to Kellerman's usual standards. However, I found her decision to alternate between a third-person and a first-person narrative a bit distracting
