A spectacular beginning to a blockbuster series. It's 2058 and, though prostitution is now legal and regulated, it can still be a dangerous profession. Eve Dallas, a lieutenant in the modern version of the NYPD, gets the job of finding out who killed a very beautiful, very expensive prostitute in her own luxurious apartment. The woman is a member of a very wealthy influential family. The prime suspect seems to be the richest man in the world. He also happens to be handsome, sexy, determined and very interested in the lieutenant, a woman who has a past with a lot of holes in it that has left her with, among other things, nightmares and a reluctance to form relationships. The pacing is good, the characters are pretty well rounded, the dialogue is engaging and the book is hard to put down. If you're into murder mysteries give it a try. You'll probably like it. I certainly did. And do. I tend to read my way from beginning to end of the series about once a year.
