#1 New York Times bestselling author J. D. Robb takes us to the New York City of 2060, where Lieutenant Eve Dallas faces down a cop killer.
A Amarylis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but shes been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When shes taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isnt just one of us.
Dallass friend Chief Medical Examiner Morris and Coltraine had started a serious relationship, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone from Coltraines squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eves husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on Coltraines life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts.
The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve containing Coltraines guns, badge, and a note from her killer: You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, Ill be sending yours to somebody else.
But Eve Dallas doesnt take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And thats a promise.
"At the start of bestseller Robb's megablast 28th novel to feature Lt. Eve Dallas (after Salvation in Death), Eve is dismayed to discover at a Manhattan crime scene that the victim is a friend, Det. Amaryllis Coltraine, who's been fatally zapped by her own stun gun. Dallas uncovers a connection to Coltraine's ex-boyfriend, Alex Ricker, whose father, a notorious criminal serving a life sentence at the Omega Penal Colony, blames Dallas and her husband, Roarke, for his imprisonment. Humorous touches, like the wild poolside wedding shower Dallas must abruptly leave after receiving word of a prime suspect found shot to death, provide relief from the intensity of the murder investigation. In a nice paranormal twist, Dallas uses dream visits with Coltraine to help expose a devious killer whose identity is a stunner. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) has a real gift for keeping this long-running thriller series fresh." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
