"A murder committed in front of children is a crime that chills the heart of even a cool-headed NYPD homicide detective like Sigrid Harald. But beneath her icy facade, her feelings and sympathies run deep, and her emotional radar can spot hidden feelings faster than a cop can draw a gun. When a shadowy figure kills a dancer in a little Greenwich Village theater before an audience of horrified children, Sigrid is outraged-and soon has a gut feeling that passion pushed the murderer. With no physical evidence to back her up, she'll turn to the special dolls therapists use to help children talk about crimes against them. For the solution to this mystery lies in forbidden impulses, deadly desires. . . and what an innocent child saw."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
