No affairs. No criminal connections. No DNA. No clues. Lieutenant Eve Dallas may be the best cop in the city not to mention having the lavish resources of her husband Roarke at her disposal but the Swisher case has her baffled. The family members were murdered in their beds with brutal, military precision. The state-of-the-art security was breached, and the killers used night vision to find their way through the cozy middle-class house. Clearly, Dallas is dealing with pros. The only mistake they made was to overlook the nine-year-old girl cowering in the dark in the kitchen
