She can take on purse snatchers, drug dealers, and worse. But when Trudy Lombard - a seemingly ordinary middle-aged lady - shows up at the station instantly, she is plunged back to the days when she was a vulnerable, traumatized young girl -and trapped in foster care with the twisted woman now in front of her. Trudy claims she came all the way to New York just to see how Eve was doing. But Eve's fiercely protective husband Roarke suspects otherwise - and his suspicion proves correct when Trudy shows up at his office demanding money in exchange for keeping the ugly details of Eve's childhood a secret. He shows her the door - and makes it clear that she'd be wise to get out of the city and never bother them again. Eve and Roarke will be satisfied if Trudy Lombard just heads back to Texas. Somebody else, though, wants her dead - and just a few days later, she's found on the floor of her hotel room. A cop to the core, Eve is determined to solve the case. Unfortunately, Eve was not the only one who ever suffered at this woman's hands - and she and Roarke will follow a dangerous path to find out who turned the victimiser into a victim.
