In this gritty and gripping new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, Eve Dallas fights to save the innocent--and serve justice to the guilty--on the streets of New York. Homicide cop Eve Dallas and her billionaire husband, Roarke, are building a brand-new school and youth shelter. They know that the hard life can lead kids toward dangerous crossroads--and with this new project, they hope to nudge a few more of them onto the right path. For expert help, they hire child psychologist Dr. Rochelle Pickering--whose own brother pulled himself out of a spiral of addiction and crime with Rochelle's support. Lyle is living with Rochelle while he gets his life together, and he's thrilled to hear about his sister's new job offer. But within hours, triumph is followed by tragedy. Returning from a celebratory dinner with her boyfriend, she finds Lyle dead with a syringe in his lap, and Eve's investigation confirms that this wasn't just another OD. After all his work to get clean, Lyle's been pumped full of poison--and a neighbor with a peephole reports seeing a scruffy, pink-haired girl fleeing the scene. Now Eve and Roarke must venture into the gang territory where Lyle used to run, and the ugly underground world of tattoo parlors and strip joints where everyone has taken a wrong turn somewhere. They both believe in giving people a second chance. Maybe even a third or fourth. But as far as they're concerned, whoever gave the order on Lyle Pickering's murder has run out of chances...… (more)

Fun, entertaining, and solid as always. ( )

The latest murder that Eve investigates has a very loose connection to Roake by way of he had just hired the victim’s sister. That and Eve had met her the evening before at a party and her date was Crack. The opening chapter was nice since you got to see almost everyone of the secondary characters in the series. Trina’s name does get mentioned but Eve is lucky enough to escape her for this book. The murder is staged as an OD but it doesn’t fool Eve and it quickly looks like part of something else. Most of the criminals in this one are overconfident and not too bright. A nice easy murder case to solve and the streets of NYC are made a bit safer due to Eve and her department. ( )

A cocktail party to celebrate Nadine’s Oscar has all the many characters show and mingle. We are introduced to Crack’s date Rochelle Pickering who Roarke is considering to head up his new boys and girls shelter An Didean. She will bring Eve her next case when her brother Lyle is murdered. A murder that could lead to a gangland war.

You can never go wrong with Eve Dallas, Roarke and the NYPSD. ( )

Read it last week, out of my mind by today. Fast read, always entertaining when Eve Dallas and her mega-zillionaire husband Roarke team up to beat the bad guy. But what the actual plot was, I haven't a clue at this point. If you like Dallas and company, you'll be engaged in the story line. ( )

An excellent installment in the In Death series. This was more of a procedural than a mystery and that was fine. Lots of suspense and a fair amount of action, fleeting meetings with some of the other recurring characters and more time with others. Once I started this one I didn't want to put it down. I'm glad that this series stays fresh. ( )
