Another in the Eve Dallas series. On her first day back on the job after a vacation in Ireland Eve becomes the primary on the murder of a Limo driver. It soon becomes apparent that this murder was not random and there is a serial killer murdering service providers in NYC. Worse yet … it looks like it could be a game being played by some very wealthy New York elites. The kind with which Rourke, Eve’s husband is familiar.

I have enjoyed this series since the first book and YES they do follow a distinct pattern and YES they become a little predictable, but I enjoy them. They are my guilty pleasure and this one was a little better than some.

Another great addition to the In Death series. ( )

I'm slowly learning to adjust my expectations for these novels. While I'm still slightly disappointed in the lack of strife between Eve and Roarke, I'm coming to terms with the change in their relationship.

I enjoyed the case here. It's always interesting to me to watch Eve figure out who or why.

The secondary characters were all at play here, though a large chunk of the book was focused solely on Eve and Roarke, which was nice.

Another good, if not great, entry in the series. ( )

As always I was not let down by this new JD Robb book! I love it! I wanted to get the bad guys myself!

Good! Good! Good! Admittedly, I'm biased about this series. I love the characters. I love the stories. I even love J.D. Robb's (ok, Queen Nora's) view of the future.

This one is a little bit different. Eve isn't tortured by the case or nasty dreams/memories. She doesn't even have a serious threat to her life. After a few really violent, vicious books, it's a pleasant turn. ( )

The road was a killer, hardly wider than a decent stream of spit and snaking like a cobra between giant bushes loaded with strange flowers that resembled drops of blood.

Book description
First it was a limo driver shot through the neck with a crossbow. Then it was a high-priced escort stabbed through the heart with a bayonet.

Random hits, thrill kills, murderers with a taste for the finer things in life - and death - are making NYPSD Lieutenant Eve Dallas angry. And an angry Eve can be just as an efficient and dangerous predator as the killer.

As time runs out on another innocent victim's life, Eve's investigation will take her into the rarified circle that her husband, Roarke, travels in - and into the perverted heart of madness....
