I love powerful Lt. Eve Dallas and how the complex New York City crimes are solved. If you don't wanna bite her husband, don't read these books! Nora Robert's best writing is as JD Robb in this "In Death" series of some 30+ stories to date. I collect all of the JD Robb books, but skip the Roberts, whose stories are not as tight as those about Lt. Eve Dallas - ass kicker! If the future of New York is like this, I fear these futuristic killers who are sneaky and complex.
Reva Ewing, a security expert and former secret service agent, finds out her husband is cheating on her with her best friend. When she breaks into the friend's home to confront them, she finds them already dead. Or so she says when Roarke and Eve arrive after receiving a call from her mother, Roarke's admin assistant. Reva is also an employee of Roarke's, so from the very beginning, Lt. Eve Dallas has to deal with concerns for the personal connections as she tries to solve these murders. As the investigation digs into the past of the victims, new details of Eve's own past surface and Roarke and Eve face the toughest challenge of their marriage so far - can their love survive the difference in their views of right and wrong?
I found this book to be particularly gut-wrenching to read in several places - the intensity of the disagreement between Roarke and Eve, the scene where she confronts Mira with a lie about Mira's past, and the scenes between Feeney and Roarke all added layers to some of my very favorite characters ever.
I'll say it again. Everyone of these is better than the last. Love this series so much I read the book sparingly so I can enjoy them and not get to the end.
spys, espionage and a security specialist for Roarke Enterprises. This along with a serious riff between Eve and Roarke which starts to endanger their marriage. J.D. Robb at her norm.
A former member of the Secret Service, and security specialist for Roarke Emterprises was thought to have killed her husband and her best friend. Lieutenant Eve Dallas doesn't think it is a jealousy killing, she thinks it has to do with techno-terrorist
