Another indictment of the foster care system. Even in the future they don't seem to get it right. ( )

Eve's past comes calling and it is not welcome. People should just have better manners than to kill at Christmas time. Usually I can sort out who the villain is by the middle of the book. I didn't know who this one was until nearly the end and I didn't at first follow Eve's reasoning. Like all of this series it is a great read for not only Eve Dallas fans but for all mystery lovers.

It's a much slower book in its pace, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. It was a good clash of minds without a lot of high octane action. ( )

Amazing! I think this one just made my top ten books in the series so far. Eve's background is always a touchy subject that gets some light in every book, but here it got pretty damn deep and we found out a lot more of what made Eve who she is now and why she does the things she does and why she thinks the way she thinks, at least some part of it. Roarke is always a pleasure to read, but here he took the prize of most swoony man in the series up until now. He was his thoughtful self, but had some moment where he just shook some sense into Eve and made her see things more clearly. Peabody is always a hoot, and though he doesn't get much 'screen' time, Summerset was great too. Really good to see that Mira and Eve really made up here after all they'd been through in Creation in Death. ( )

Another addictive installment to the In Death series. One of the better character development mysteries as it involves one of Eve's horrid foster mothers. ( )

Book description
New York Lieutenant Eve Dallas has walking a tightrope between her professional duties and her private demons.

Eve Dallas is one tough cop. She's got no problem dealing with a holiday reveler in a red suit who plunges thirty-seven stories and gives new meaning to the term "sidewalk Santa." But when she gets back to the station and Trudy Lombard shows up, it's all Eve can do to hold it together. Instantly, she's thrown back into the past, to the days when she was a vulnerable, traumatized girl-trapped in foster care with the twisted woman who now sits in front of her, smiling.

Trudy claims she just wanted to see how Eve was doing. But Eve's fiercely protective husband, Roarke, suspects otherwise-and his suspicions prove correct when Trudy arrives at his office, demanding money in exchange for keeping the ugly details of his wife's childhood a secret. Barely restraining himself, Roarke shows her the door-and makes it clear that she'd be wise to get out of New York and never bother him or his wife again.

Eve and Roarke just want the woman out of their lives, but someone else wants her dead. Just a few days later, Trudy's found on the floor of her hotel room, a mess of bruises and blood. A cop to the core, Eve is determined to solve the case, if only for the sake of Trudy's bereaved son. Unfortunately, Eve is not the only one to have suffered at this woman's hands, and she and Roarke will follow a circuitous, dangerous path to find out who turned this victimizer into a victim.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425210731, Mass Market Paperback)

View our feature on J.D. Robb’s Eve Dallas series.

Eve Dallas is one tough cop. It should take more than a seemingly ordinary middle-aged lady to make her fall apart. But when that lady is Trudy Lombard, all bets are off. Just seeing Trudy at the station plunges Eve back to the days when she was a vulnerable, traumatized young girl—and trapped in foster care with the twisted woman who now sits smiling in front of her.

Trudy claims she came all the way to New York just to see how Eve is doing. But Eve’s fiercely protective husband, Roarke, suspects otherwise—and a blackmail attempt by Trudy proves his suspicion correct. Eve and Roarke just want the woman out of their lives. But someone else wants her dead. And when her murder comes to pass, Eve and Roarke will follow a circuitous and dangerous path to find out who turned the victimizer into a victim.
