At 8:15 in the morning, a small commuter plane carrying forty-seven passengers crashes into an apartment building in Granada Hills, California. Shock waves ripple through Los Angeles, as L.A.P.D. Lieutenant Peter Decker works overtime to calm rampant fears of a 9/11-type terror attack. But a grisly mystery lives inside the plane's charred and twisted wreckage: the unidentified bodies of four extra travelers. And there is no sign of an airline employee who was supposedly on the catastrophic flight. Decker and his wife, Rina, have personal reasons for being profoundly shaken by the tragedy, since the "accident" occurred frighteningly close to their daughter Hannah's school. Luckily, their child and her schoolmates escaped unscathed. But the fate of the unaccounted-for flight attendant--twenty-eight-year-old Roseanne Dresden--remains a question mark more than a month after the horrific event, when the young woman's irate stepfather calls, insisting that she was never onboard the doomed plane. Instead, he claims, she was most likely murdered by her abusive, unfaithful husband. But why, then, was Roseanne's name included on the passenger list? Under intense pressure from the department to come up with answers, Decker launches an investigation that carries him down a path of tragic history, dangerous secrets, and deadly lies--and leads him to the corpse of a three-decades-missing murder victim. And as the jagged pieces slowly fall into place, a frightening picture begins to form: a mind-searing portrait of unimaginable evil that will challenge Decker's and Rina's own beliefs about guilt and innocence and justice.… (mais)

Once again, started out good...then dragged along...I'm reading this out of desperation because I've loaned my Nook to my BFF so she can read the Shades of Grey books....I do have to say that the plot was an interesting one; just not a big fan of how she writes. Time to go back to the library LOL ( )

The Burnt House is a story that is believable. It illustrates the hard work and research of the police to be able to solve a crime with basically no clues. The Burnt House received four stars in this very short review and is recommended for a good story.. ( )

Ein Alptraum wird wahr für Pete Decker vom LAPD und seine Kollegen: der Absturz eines Passagierflugzeugs mitten in Los Angeles. Und als wäre das ausgebrochene Chaos nicht schon groß genug, meldet sich kurz darauf ein Ehepaar bei Decker und behauptet, die Liste der Opfer sei manipuliert worden. Ihre Tochter Roseanne Dresden, die als Stewardess an Bord des Todesfluges gewesen sein soll, sei in Wahrheit vor dem Flug von ihrem Ehemann ermordet worden. Tatsächlich gibt es seit dem Unglück keine Spur mehr von der jungen Frau. Als dann aber statt Roseannes Leichnam eine andere Tote auf dem Absturzgelände gefunden wird, muss Decker zusammen mit Marge Dunn und Scott Oliver zwei mysteriöse Fälle lösen – ohne einen einzigen konkreten Beweis.

I actually think this book is more like a 3.5, but I give it a 4 because of good writing. The good writing, not the plot, is what kept me engaged.

A small commuter plane crashes into an apartment building. Everyone aboard is killed. As authorities comb the wreckage to recover bodies, the body of a flight attendant comes up missing. Peter Decker is on the case, investigating the missing flight attendant. Then authorities find a body that has nothing to do with the crash and that looks like it had been under the apartment building for decades.

As Decker investigates both of these cases, his team is sent back and forth from Los Angeles to San Jose to New Mexico as they slowly gather enough details to solve both mysteries.

The story was good but not so engaging that I couldn't put the book down. Faye Kellerman is an excellent writer, and her writing is what elevated this novel despite the lack of character depth. It's possible that the character depth was lacking because it had already been dealt with in previous Decker/Lazarus novels, but it seemed noticeably shallow in this book.

Regardless, I did enjoy this book, just not as much as I usually enjoy Kellerman's books. ( )

Solid police procedural as Decker and his team work to identify a body found in an apartment building destroyed in a cataclysmic plane crash. Some confusion between the corpse and a missing flight attendant needs to get sorted out with the realization that they are investigating two murders. The cast of supporting characters stays interesting with the focus this time on the police rather than the family. ( )

One word of caveat. If you or your experts find a large amount of blood loss on a cushion of a couch or a chair, or on the bed, without any concomitant spatter to go with it, please proceed with caution. Men tend to forget that we woman sometimes leak during our periods. You don't want to arrest the man because Roseanne wore a faulty Tampex. [Said by judge issuing police a search warrant.]
Decker often wondered about the exact purpose of exercise. If it was just to elevate the heart rate, there were lots of other ways to do that without spending mind-numbing hours killing one's feet on a treadmill: sex, stress, and caffeine instantly came to mind.
