A driver, working for a leading limousine service, dies with a crossbow shot through his neck. The executive who’d booked the car had had his identity stolen.

A high-priced escort dies with a bayonet stuck in her heart. The CEO who’d arranged for her services had had his identity stolen.

New York Police and Security Department homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas fears the criminal she seeks is a thrill killer with a taste for the more exclusive in both life and death. With no motive, Eve has no way to predict who will become the next victim or where the next murder will occur. Where will Eve’s search for the killer take her? And will the killer strike again before she can put an end to the heinous murders?

This, the thirty-first entry in the “In Death” canon, begins with a special trip to Ireland for Eve and Roarke where they visit with Roarke’s family and Eve has a surprise present for her husband. [Cue the happy tears.] And before they return to New York, Eve becomes peripherally involved in solving the murder of a young woman.

But the focus of this story is the murder spree in New York City after they return from their trip. Anchored in the world of the near-future by a strong sense of place, the unfolding narrative takes several twists and turns as Eve investigates, but, in this case, readers will identify the culprit early in the telling of the tale. Still, the intrigue is in watching Eve work the complex case with her cohorts.

As always, the relationships between the well-defined, nuanced characters lie at the heart of the story. As the narrative evolves, there’s plenty of camaraderie, humor, banter, repartee, and romance to accompany the determined police work.

Readers will find much to appreciate here and are likely to find it difficult to set this book aside before turning the final page.

Highly recommended. ( )

Police adventure mystery in which the killers leave a trail in their contest to kill with no penalty. ( )

We get to start with Eve and Rourke actually on vacation for their anniversary, which I thought was cool. Even on vacation Eve finds herself involved in a murder scene. That is quickly resolved and the story moves quickly to their return from their trip only for Dallas to be called out her first day back. As Dallas works to put the pieces together she finds she has more than one murderer on her hands and they are smug bastards. I enjoy this series even though it tends to be the same formula, the characters are so engaging I don't care.

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.
