Publisher Comments:

Eve Dallas deals with a homicide—and the holiday season—in the latest from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.

Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didnt count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest.

                      Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women whod been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Zieglers enemies, shes also dealing with her Christmas shopping list—plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husbands upcoming holiday bash.

                      Feeling less than festive, Dallas tries to put aside her distaste for the victim and solve the mystery of his death. There are just a few investigating days left before Christmas, and as New Years 2061 approaches, this homicide cop is resolved to stop a cold-blooded killer.

Review:

"Apart from references to such things as advanced robots and 'vids' (the new name for theatrical movies), 2060 New York City is indistinguishable from present-day Gotham in bestseller Robb's 38th full-length Eve Dallas thriller (after 2013's Calculated in Death). In addition, nothing in the cookie-cutter plot couldn't have happened in the present or near past. On impulse, 26-year-old Jerald Reinhold, an unemployed loser, stabs his mother, Barbara, to death in his parents' Manhattan apartment, where he waits until his father, Carl, comes home so he can bludgeon Carl with a baseball bat. Lt. Eve Dallas, of the New York Police and Security Department, gets on Reinhold's trail, but the savvy veteran makes a rookie mistake by not warning a clear target of Reinhold's rage that she could be the next victim. Eve also has trouble assessing her quarry. At one point she calls Reinhold 'a fucking moron,' then adds 'he's cannier than I gave him credit for initially.' Readers will have to judge for themselves.

Synopsis:

The incomparable J. D. Robb presents the latest moving and suspenseful novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling Eve Dallas series.

Leading the demolition of a long-empty New York building that once housed a makeshift shelter for troubled teenagers, Lieutenant Eve Dallasand#8217;s husband uncovers two skeletons wrapped in plastic. And by the time Eveand#8217;s done with the crime scene, there are twelve murders to be solved.

The victims are all young girls. A tattooed tough girl who dealt in illegal drugs. The runaway daughter of a pair of well-to-do doctors. They all had their stories. And they all lost their chance for a better life.

Then Eve discovers a connection between the victims and someone she knows. And she grows even more determined to reveal the secrets of the place that was called The Sanctuaryand#151;and the evil concealed in one human heart.

Synopsis:

In the latest suspense thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, the deepest hatreds seethe within the closest relationships, and blood flows faster than water…

Lieutenant Eve Dallas has plenty to be grateful for, especially Roarkes big Irish family, which is a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.

Other couples arent as lucky. The Reinholds, for example, are lying in their home stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned—and heartbroken by the evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

Turns out that twenty-six-year-old Jerry is not only capable of brutality but has taking a liking to it. With the money hes stolen from his parents and a long list of grievances, he intends to finally make his mark on the world. Eve and her team already know the who, how, and why of this murder. What they need to pinpoint is where Jerrys going to strike next.
