Summary:

No affairs. No criminal connections. No DNA. No clues. 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. . . Now Nixie Swisher is an orphan - and the sole eyewitness to a seemingly inexplicable crime. Kids are not Dallas's strong suit. But Nixie needs a safe place to stay, and Dallas needs to solve this case. Not only because of the promise she made to Nixie. Not only for the cause of justice. But also to put to rest some of her own darkest memories - and deepest fears. With her partner Peabody on the job, and watching her back - and with Roarke providing the kind of help only he can give - Lieutenant Eve Dallas is running after shadows, and dead-set on finding out who's behind them.

Genres:

  • Karen Boswell

    I love all the characters, and Erickson is the perfect reader for this series. I wish the ebooks had their order included in the book description.

  • Angela Jones

    Another keep you guessing murder mystery. I enjoy being familiar with the characters and being involved with their lives. This series keeps you guessing and wanting more.

  • Jamie McDonald

    I didn't start out liking this book. I expected it to be a terribly gory story, but I kept with it and enjoyed it completely. Dallas is now a character I'll look forward to reading about.

    Another great book. The author keeps Eve Dallas' nature consistent when she could easily soften her. The book ends how it should end; but, not necessarily how I wanted it to end... The author is realistic.. Great book.

  • Dan Pressley

    I really like Nora Roberts writing style and the detail she puts worth in all her "In Death" books. This one did not disappoint. The story was very powerful and moving and left me feeling sad in parts as I empathized with the victim.

    I think that Mavis' pregnancy has gone on for too many books. It's time to move some of these characters further along. Hopefully the next book will have more on Peabody and McNab.

    I'm a big fan of this series. The narrator does a great job reading the novel and Peabody provides the comic relief. Definitely enjoyed this novel.

  • Kellie

    This book is yet again another fantastic book - kept you hanging until the end! The narration is also wonderful - that can make or break a audio book. This Series is one to listen too over and over again!

    Love to listen to J.D. Robb and also read most of her books. I can picture what she is writing about. Would recommend the books and tapes, highly to anyone who likes futuristic books and tapes.

    I can't get enough J.D. Robb. And I was extremely impressed with the audio on this one. Another wonderful plot with colorful characters with just enough humor to make it enjoyable.
