A pretty good mystery. But if it were not for the slightly advanced technology it could be easily be set today
Eve and Roarke are awsome together Eve is always a kick ass cop with Roarke at her side.love love love this author
What appears to start out as a random brutal crime quickly turns into a web of revenge and horror as a brutal killer is systematically killing the loved ones of people he blames for ruining his life. With the impending nuptials of Louise and Charles and Eveís near panic at the thought of her matron of honor duties, she has very little time to find the killer but our Eve would much rather get bloody and chase down a killer than be subjected to the rituals of marriage and being within 100 miles of Trina and her devices of female torture.
As always, I loved this book and canít get enough of Eve, Roark and the gang. However, I was expecting a more intense takedown of the subject. As usual, it played out flawlessly, but with the level of brutality the killer demonstrates, I expected him to go down fighting. Perhaps the author didnít want her beaten and bloodied right before the wedding. Even so, Eve does get her hands dirty a few times and takes a few hits for the team. Not enough snark with Summerset this go around, but these two pace themselves beautifully and donít disappoint when they do take the gloves off. I love how Peabody is developing as a character. Sheís really coming into her own as a detective and with Eveís mentoring, she will be a force to be reckoned with. What can I say about Roark that hasnít been said a million times already? As Peabody and Mavis would say, heís mag. I always enjoy seeing him getting to use his computer geek skills working with Feeney and McNab to assist Eve.
With 29 books in the series and no indication of slowing down, I am excited to see what Eve and the gang gets into next.
