In chapter four of Glory in Death, by J. D. Robb, Eve is in Cecily Tower's apartment talking to Feeney about Cecily's last hours.  The last two sentences on page 49 of the copy I was reading (hardback published by G. P. Putnam's Sons) are "The associate tells me that her mood was calm but upbeat.  She'd had a good day in court."  The paragraph at the top of page 50 is "Fluentes is going up.  She laid the groundwork.  Taking her out won't change that."  That doesn't make sense to me.  Is some of the text missing?  Are things just out of order?  I have looked at a paperback copy of the same book and the text is identical.  I don't want to skim through the book to see if that is the case in case I accidentally read something that gives the rest of the story away.  I would really like to read the book but can't get myself past that part because it doesn't make sense to me which drives me crazy.  I hope someone who has read the book or listened to the audio book can fill in the missing part or explain that part to me.


Thanks to "NellieBly", I have figured it out.  The problem was not with the text in the book; the problem was how I was thinking about it.  Once I thought about it from a different angle, it made sense.

I think they were both brainstorming..Eve was going over recent and then what's-his-face referred back to the earlier statement about someone from a previous case.
