A phone call from up high interrupts Eve's plans to have a lazy day with her husband: The teenage daughter of Captain Jonah McMasters, head of the NYPD drug squad, has been found raped and strangled in her bedroom. A terrifying video of Deena, bloody and beaten beyond recognition, hints at a link between her death and a criminal in McMasters's own past, someone determined to exact revenge in the cruelest way possible. Searching through McMasters' cases leads Eve nowhere - until another rape-murder, and another video, reveals the killers deadly intent: to target every single person involved in his family's case over a decade ago. With barely anything to go on except a tangle of dead ends, Eve and her team must work fast to identify the next victim of a killer with who will stop at nothing ...

Another great Eve Dallas mystery
As usual, Nora Roberts, writing as J D Robb delivers. First a disclaimer - I am a hard core fan of the NR-J D Robb 'In Death' mysteries. This one did not disappoint. It is dark and somewhat gruesome but it also serves as a cautionary tale for innocent young people. This mystery, like so many for Eve Dallas is like peeling an onion and its layers lead to old and unfortunate connections.
The first victim is an NYPSD Captain's only teenage daughter and her murder is any parent's worst nightmare. The investigation leads to the world of local collegians and it features Roark's protege Jamie Lingstrom, who is now a college student. His computer genius helps Eve, Roark, and Feeney to ultimately solve the case.
As usual with Eve's cases, there is also a Roark connection and as the investigation goes on, their fantastic relationship deepens and continues to evolve even as he helps her and her team to solve the crime.
It's also really nice to see the evolution of the other people in Eve and Roark's world and to see Charles and Louise reach a major milestone.
I've added this one to my collection and can't wait for the next one.

Always love these books and am waiting eagely for the next one. What an imagination without the ridiculousness of most futuristic books!

Kindred in Death
Great book by a FABULOUS author! Arrived in great condition, and fast too.
Publishers Weekly, 2009-09-14 New York City law officers have more technological weapons at their disposal in bestseller Robb's snappy near-future series, but so do criminals, including the sadistic rapist killer who strikes down Deena MacMasters, the 16-year-old daughter of police captain Jonah MacMasters, in the 30th full-length novel to feature homicide detective Lt. Eve Dallas (after Promises in Death). MacMasters specifically asks that Dallas, who has a knack for clever insights and deductions, lead the investigation into his daughter's murder. An impressive team of professionals-augmented by Dallas's husband, Roarke, and his young protege, Jaime Lingstrom-begins the arduous task of collecting and analyzing data. Clues suggest Deena may not be the only victim targeted by her killer and increase the pressure on Dallas and her cohorts. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) combines sex, horrific crime, forensics and technological wizardry for another winner sure to please her many fans. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
