In her years at the NYPSD, Eve Dallas has solved some truly appalling homicides. But some cases are worse than others.

On Manhattanand#8217;s East Side a woman lies dead at the bottom of the stairs, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.

A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesnand#8217;t seem the type to be on anyoneand#8217;s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, the lieutenant knows Martaand#8217;s murder was the work of a killer whoand#8217;s trained, but not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

But when someone steals the files out of Martaand#8217;s office, Eve must immerse herself in her billionaire husband Roarkeand#8217;s world of big business to figure out whoand#8217;s cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman.

The founder of the computer gaming giant U-Play is found decapitated in his locked, private playroom. And now Eve Dallas and her team are about to enter the next level of police work, in a world where fantasy is the ultimate seduction--and the price of defeat is death.

Synopsis:

On Manhattan's Upper East Side a woman lies dead at the bottom of the stairs, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better.

A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone's hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the building, the lieutenant knows Marta's murder was the work of a killer who's trained, but not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

But when someone steals the files out of Marta's office, Eve must immerse herself in her billionaire husband Roarke's world of big business to figure out who's cruel and callous enough to hire a hit on an innocent woman. And as the killer's violent streak begins to escalate, Eve knows she has to draw him out, even if it means using herself as bait. . . .

Synopsis:

It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks . . .until something went terribly wrong. And after twelve minutes of chaos and violence, eighty people lay dead.

Lieutenant Eve Dallas is trying to sort out the inexplicable events. Surviving witnesses talk about seeing things—monsters and swarms of bees. They describe sudden, overwhelming feelings of fear and rage and paranoia. When forensics gives its report, the mass delusions make more sense: It appears the

bar patrons were exposed to a cocktail of chemicals and illegal drugs that could drive anyone to temporary insanity—if not kill them outright.

But that doesn’t explain who would unleash such horror—or why. And if Eve can’t figure it out fast, it could happen again, anytime, anywhere. Because it’s airborne. . . .
