'We've got a corpse that looks like one of the investigators, a houseful of Hollywood and a media machine that's going to eat it like gooey chocolate.' Lieutenant Eve Dallas is panicking - and she's not at a crime scene. Forced to attend a celeb-packed party for a new movie based on her most famous case, she is surrounded by actors who look like everyone in her life. Just as the end is in sight, brutal reality crashes through the sparkly facade. There's been a murder. The obnoxious actress playing Eve's partner, Peabody, has been found face down in the pool. As Eve hastily interviews the guests, it's hard to find anyone who didn't have a motive for the crime. But with a murdered Personal Investigator, a missing tape recording and a hugely expensive movie in the mix, Eve must fight to keep a clear head and stop a calculated killer.

Publishers Weekly, 2011-11-21 Murder, sex, and blackmail all figure in bestseller Robb's smart, well-crafted 35th Eve Dallas novel set in mid-21st-century New York City (after 2011's Dallas to New York). Lt. Eve Dallas feels a little uneasy attending a party at Hollywood mogul Mason Roundtree's Park Avenue townhouse to celebrate The Icove Agenda, the movie adaptation of a high-profile murder case solved by Eve and her police cohorts. Eve has even more cause for concern after 28-year-old actress K.T. Harris, who makes a drunken scene at dinner, later turns up dead in the lap pool on the townhouse roof. Could K.T. have fallen into the pool by accident? Or was it foul play? K.T. had plenty of enemies, including Marlo Durn, who plays Eve in the film and could pass for Eve's sister: "I hated her. She was a sick, bitter bully." Eve's wealthy and charming husband, Rourke, lends support while Eve and Detective Peabody pursue yet another gripping case. Agent: Amy Berkower. (Feb.)
