This is one of my favorite series. Everything about these books are great. They are set in the future, they have the richest man in the world, Eve Dallas a terrific dective and all the characters are so real you begin to think you actually know them.
Police Lt. Eve Dallas is on the trail of a serial killer in New York City. The killer is imitating famous killers throughout history...starting with Jack the Ripper. On the body of his latest victim, he has left a note for Eve, taunting her with the murders. But the note leads Eve and Peabody to a list of high profile suspects. None of them will co-operate with the police investigation. Eve has to find the murderer before he strikes again.
Another great police procedural. The killer imitates Jack the Ripper, the Boston Strangler and Ted Bundy. The series moves forward with Eve learning a little more about Eve's past and Peabody takes her Detectives Exam. There is also a funny scene with Eve and Roarke attending their first cookout. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
