In the latest suspense thriller in the #1 New York Times bestselling series, the year 2060 is drawing to a close in New York City and loved ones are coming together for Thanksgiving. But sometimes the deepest hatreds seethe within the closest relationships, and blood flows faster than water
Lieutenant Eve Dallas has plenty to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarkes big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but its a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood.
Other couples arent as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying in their home stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunnedand heartbroken by the evidence that they were murdered by their own son. Twenty-six-year-old Jerry hadnt made a great impression on the bosses who fired him or the girlfriend who dumped himbut they didnt think he was capable of this.
Turns out Jerry is not only capable of brutality but 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.
