When a cop is murdered in her own apartment building with her own weapon, Eve Dallas is called on the scene to investigate one of her own. Death is never easy, but when it effects the ones you care about in your line of work and personal life...it takes its toll. Will Eve's friends ever be able to come back from this and do their job again. ( )

A great entry in the series. Morris has been one of my favorite minor characters, and it was great to see him featured prominently in this one. I wish she'd bring Roarke's family more regularly into the mix, or find out something new about Eve's family. But even without those, this one was still very good. ( )

A friend is hurt, a cop is dead, Eve has been threatened. Lt. Eve Dallas does not take kindly to threats. She is determined to break this case and that is a promise. This one in the "In Death" series had it all. I really find Eve's terror at the smallest everyday things quite amusing. I'm usually pretty good at fingering the bad guy but this one came as a complete surprise. Another very good read from J.D. Robb ( )

The next installment of the Eve Dallas series. Eve and her various cohorts are on the hunt for a cop killer. As usual, for fans, this book does not disappoint. ( )

Book description
A Eve Dallas Investigation In Death

Every cop gets angry when a police officer is killed. And Lieutenant Eve Dallas is no exception. Detective Amarylis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she's been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she's taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn't just "one of us."

But Amarylis Coltraine was also in a relationship with one of Eve's closest colleagues and friend, the Chief Medical Examiner Li Morris, who had started a serious relationship, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the terrible news to Morris, she throws every resource she has into finding the killer.

Eve starts questioning everyone from Coltraine's squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve's husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on Coltraine's life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts, when they find a link to the son of a criminal she and her Roarke had put behind bars, the case heats up even further. Alex Ricker was romantically involved with Amarylis ? Did she leak information to him and then have a change of heart? Eve puts herself in danger to get to the truth? But she can't prevent another death before she learns who betrayed both the criminal's son and the police officer he loved...

The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve containing Coltraine's guns, badge, and a note from her killer: "You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I'll be sending yours to somebody else." But Eve Dallas doesn't take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that's a promise.
