'The heat was murder. July flexed her sweaty muscles, eyed the goal, and drop-kicked New York into the sweltering steambath of summer. Some managed to escape. But most just had to live through it.' Louie Cogburn has spent three days holed up in his apartment, staring at his computer screen. His pounding headache is unbearable...like spikes drilling into his brain. And it's getting worse. Finally, when someone knocks at his door, Louie picks up a baseball bat, opens the door, and starts swinging...The first cop on the scene fires his stunner twice and Louie dies instantly. Detective Eve Dallas takes over the investigation, but there's nothing to explain the man's sudden rage or death. The only clue is a bizarre message left on his computer screen: Absolute Purity Achieved. And when a second man dies under nearly identical circumstances, Dallas starts racking her brain for answers and for courage to face the impossible...that this might be a computer virus able to spread from machine to man...

My only caution with this series is that once you get started it is hard to stop. There must be almost 30 books about Eve and her sexy husband. It has been hard hunting down all the books so that I can say I have read them all but finally I have managed it. Alibris was a big help since some of her books are out of print - I think. These books have mystery with a touch of science fiction and lots of romance.
Publishers Weekly, 2002-08-12 "A sick computer can and does infect other computers, but not its operator," claims Roarke, dreamboat husband of New York's hotshot futuristic cop, Lieutenant Eve Dallas, in the 15th installment in Robb's `Death' series (after Reunion in Death). Roarke's theory is put to the test when pedophiles and drug dealers begin dying from a computer-generated virus that literally blows the mind of its victims. It doesn't take long for Eve to figure out that a vigilante terrorist organization with superior tech knowledge is meting out its own form of justice the group even leaves the message "absolute purity achieved" on victims' computer screens. Pinpointing the group is more of a challenge. Suspects could be anyone from members of the justice system to formerly abused children, the latter of which strikes a personal and painful nerve in Eve, who was abused as a child. Readers familiar with Eve's history and the sea of characters brought over from her previous books will be more comfortable than first- timers attempting to wade through this sluggish installment. Despite Robb's smooth-as-glass prose, her latest isn't likely to win new converts to the series. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
