Summary:

Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she's been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she's taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn't just "one of us." Dallas's friend Chief Medical Examiner Morris had started a serious relationship with Coltraine, 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, including Coltraine's squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve's husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on the dead woman's 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 Coltraine's guns, badge, and a note from her killer: "You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I'll be sending yours to somebody else." But Eve Dallas doesn't take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that's a promise.

    Awesome book, but of cousre, it's a JD Robb book. This story is a great one as is all her books as JD Robb. I just hope I don't run out of her books. Susan Erikson makes all the characters come to life in vivid color.

    Dr Morris's girlfriend, a police officer, has been murdered and Lt Dallas is on the case. The action is fast and the plot twists around. I must admit I did not guess the right person as the doer at the end of the book. Eve is hosting Dr Louise DeMoto's bridal shower which adds some humor to the book. I can relate to Eve's dislike of parties, as I feel the same. Susan Ericksen does a great job as the reader. She has been the voice for the series and it would not be the same with out her.

    As always, JD Robb's books are top of the line. If I don't have any other books, I will often replay the book several times. I never tire of reading them. I wish they would be made into Lifetime movies.
