Eve Dallas does it again
This was a very good story with more than one line going on at once.

Another super Eve Dallas book. the subject in this one is close to the heart of anyone who has lost a loved one to treachery. Eve Dallas is a cop in a million, gritty story, great sex/love theme as always, the details are very precise and the climax always worth the wait. All the characters (Rourke/Peabody/McNab/Mavis/Dr Mira etc) are consistent to each story's different aspect.
Really good read. The overall staging, from the abusive and poor background Eve has had to the riches she now has with Rourke, are remarkable as she still gets the bad guy, or sometimes bad woman.

Awesome!!!! I love the ability of Lt Eve Dallas to have risen above all the abuse to make herself a stuning and appealing person. She makes me want to read more.

I'm one of her biggest fans...so...that's says it all
Publishers Weekly, 2000-08-18 Written under the pen name J.D. Robb, this futuristic mysteryDset in New York City, year 2059Dshowcases veteran writer Nora Roberts's skills at their best. It's as tough, smart, sassy and successful as its heroine, police lieutenant Eve Dallas. The story opens in the upscale nightclub Purgatory, where Dallas discovers the brutally slain body of a fellow officer; another cop is murdered soon thereafter. Both men, it appears, were on the take, and both were connected to elusive criminal Max Ricker. Dallas's investigation, which exposes crime and police corruption, puts both her reputation and life in danger. To make matters worse, Purgatory is owned by her own millionaire husband, RoarkeDa business associate of Ricker's before turning legitimateDand the overlap of professional and personal lives adds extra fireworks to an already tempestuous marriage. Robb's plotting is precise and fast paced, creating a satisfying mystery full of lively, credible twists. Secondary charactersDa troubled female police captain, an Internal Affairs cop with a leftover crush on DallasDare as well-drawn as Dallas herself, a tough but endearing 21st-century woman. Sexy, surprising and often funny power struggles between Dallas and Roarke are the tasty icing on this extremely well-made fictional "cake," which is just the right confection for lazy late-summer reading.
