Only in death book I will never read again ( )

All of these books are a fabulous read. Great characters with their individual personalities makes you feel like you are reading about friends. Lt. Eve Dallas has to deal with some of Rourke's past history and the very difficult task of finding the murder of two teachers at a very prestigious school. One was very well liked, the other very sleazy. Where the evidence was pointing was a direction that Eve did not wish to go. ( )

funnily enough, this was my first Dallas read, and one of my favourite. after it I got back to the beginning and introduced myself to this wonderful series. Really enjoyed listening to the audio book as well. ( )

This one actually creeped me out while reading it! Most of this series I would put under the cozy mystery heading but this one was a little more hard core. ( )

I loved both the subplot and the main mystery in this novel. The main mystery was a hard one, and I certainly did not predict the outcome myself. The subplot moved the Dallas/Roarke relationship along in a very real way. Add in a few great scenes with Mavis and Summerset, and the book was nearly perfect. ( )

Book description
New York Lieutenant Eve Dallas doesn't like to see innocent people murdered. And the death of Craig Foster is clearly a murder. He was seemingly ordinary history teacher, but uncovers some extraordinary surprises. Foster's death devastated his young wife, who'd sent him to work that day with a lovingly packed lunch. It shocked his colleagues at the private school, too, and as for the ten-year-old girls who found him in his classroom in a pool of bodily fluids-they may have been traumatized for life.

Eve soon determines that Foster's homemade lunch was tainted with deadly ricin, and that Mr. Foster's colleagues have some startling secrets of their own. It's Eve's job to sort it out- and discover why someone would have done this to a man who seemed so inoffensive, so pleasant... so innocent.

Now Magdalena Percell... there's someone Eve can picture as a murder victim. Possibly at Eve's own hands. The slinky blonde-an old flame of her billionaire husband, Roarke-has arrived in New York, and she's anything but innocent. Roarke seems blind to Magdalena's manipulation, and he insists that the occasional lunch or business meeting with her is nothing to worry about... and none of Eve's business. Consumed by her jealousy--and Roarke's indifference to it, she is unnerved by the situation that she finds it hard to focus on her case. Still, she'll have to put aside her feelings, for a while at least-because another man has just turned up dead.

Eve knows all too well that innocence can be a facade. Keeping that in mind may help her solve this case at last. But it may also tear apart her marriage.
