Performing a check on a prospective surrogate mother on the condition that she never learn who the contracting parents are, Tanner is amazed when she flees and discovers that the would-be adoptive parents harbor secrets involving incest, murder, and the family business.From Booklist:
Stuart and Millicent Colbert can't conceive a child, but they have the resources to hire a surrogate mother. San Francisco private eye Marsh Tanner is employed to investigate the surrogate, Greta Hammond. The catch: Hammond must never know the identity of the Colberts nor that she's being investigated. Meanwhile, the detective's significant other is pushing him toward parenthood, a step that, at age 48, Tanner believes impossible. Complications arise on both fronts when Tanner infiltrates Hammond's life and--against all better judgment--her bed. When Tanner finds a distant connection between the surrogate and Mr. Colbert, Greta, now pregnant with the Colbert's child, disappears. Tanner is the only one who knows all the elements of the case, and he's forced to make Solomon-like decisions as he factors in his own confused emotions regarding parenthood, the welfare of the unborn child, and the lives of the three adult principals. Tanner novels are never just mysteries; Greenleaf always weaves in a larger human dilemma, and here he does it more successfully than ever before. This tenth installment is easily the best of the Tanner series. Too many mysteries end with the scent of cordite in the air; here we end with a tear in the eye. It's a nice change. Wes Lukowsky
