Interesting development in this series, as a nice year old girl survives a slaughter of her family in their house one night and takes refuge at Eve/Roarke's place., thus opening up the emotional floodgates throughout. ( )

Typical Eve-Roarke. If you are reading this book, you are committed to the series. Good, bad, or in-between. ( )

When a middle class, seemingly innocent urban family is murdered in their beds with no apparent motive and only one small survivor, Detective Eve Dallas is sure there's a motive. Good thing for her she has a crack team to back her up and mad skills to drive her on.

Hadn't read one of these for a while, and it was a kick to go back and re-discover the early Eve. Not a bad way to spend a summer evening. ( )

Book description
New York City of 2059 'Murder was always an insult, and had been since the first human hand had smashed a stone into the first human skull. But the murder, bloody and brutal, of an entire family in their own home, in there own beds, was a different form of evil.

No affairs. No criminal connections. No DNA. No clues. Eve Dallas may be the best cop in the city--not to mention having the lavish resources of her husband, Roarke, at her disposal--but the Swisher case has her baffled. On the surface Keelie and Grant Swisher seem unlikely targets for an assassin; an average couple living in a nice neighbourhood and working hard to raise their two kids. But when Eve Dallas is called to a multiple homicide at the Swisher family home, she discovers a blood-bath. There are five dead - including two children - in what seems to be a professional hit. The killers breached an elaborate state-of-the-art security system, and the killers used night-vision equipment to find their way through the cozy, middle-class house. With brutal, military precision, they slashed the throat of each victim while they slept in their beds; and were in and out of the house in less than ten minutes. Clearly, Eve is dealing with pros. In fact they made only one mistake... they left a survivor. They overlooked the nine-year-old girl cowering in the darkened kitchen. Nixie Swisher's sudden urge for a midnight snack may just have saved her life. While her parents, brother and best-friend lay in their beds, oblivious to the threat, Nixie was downstairs in the kitchen getting a soda... and she saw far too much.

Kids are not Dallas's strong suit. But Now Nixie Swisher is an orphan-and the sole eyewitness to a seemingly inexplicable crime, and Dallas needs to solve this case. Eve knows that her priority is to keep her safe. Offering her a temporary refuge is easy, but dealing with the emotional needs of a nine-year-old girl who has lost everything isn't. Not only for the cause of justice. With her partner, Peabody, back on the job-and her husband, Roarke, providing the kind of help that only he can give-Lieutenant Eve Dallas is running after shadows, and dead-set on finding out who's behind them. But also to put to rest some of her own darkest memories--and deepest fears. But she's chasing professionals who don't like leaving loose ends. And leaving Nixie Swisher alive is one loose end too many....
