The Burnt House by Faye Kellerman
Following the crash of a commuter plane into an apartment building, Los Angeles Police Lt. Peter Decker tried to calm the people of the community, although he had many unanswered questions. Was it terrorism or mechanical failure? Months afterward, he still had no answers. With all the bodies recovered except Roseanne Dresden, the flight attendant, Roseanne's parents insisted foul play was involved. The investigation leads Decker and Rina down dangerous pathways filled with dead ends and deadly consequences.
