It is 2058, New York City. In a world where technology can reveal the darkest of secrets, there's only one place to hide a crime of passion-in the heart.

Even in the mid-twenty-first century, during a time when genetic testing usually weeds out any violent hereditary traits before they can take over, murder still happens. The first victim is found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second is murdered in her own apartment building. Police Lieutenant Eve Dallas has no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provide Eve with a long list of suspects-including her own lover, Roarke.

My Rating:

My Review:
Eve is once again embroiled in a high profile case when a high powered assistant DA is murdered in a vicious way.  There are no suspects and Eve's boss is hopelessly personally connected to the case.  Eve and Roarke's relationship skids to a stop when he is once again connected to the women in the case.  But things soon get worse when an unlikely suspect is found and Eve's cop instincts get her in trouble with the department and the media.  Eve is desperate to find the murderer before this case ends both her relationship and her career.

These barks are so easy and quick to read.  I can't believe that I'm just now reading this series when it has been available forever!  I enjoyed getting to know Eve and Roarke more.  The tension in their relationship was my favorite part of the book.  I'm seeing the technological advances more.  The change in laws we all know and hold dear are becoming more apparent, making this series quite refreshing and it stands apart from others.  Though I loved this installment, a few elements of this mystery irked me.  It just seemed too similar in theme to the first one.  The low opinion of women and Roarke as a suspect is a trend that I hope stops right now.  Or at least give it a break.  That being said, it was a fun read and I had no idea of the killer at all.  The drama between the characters kept me turning each page and wanting more.

I am quite addicted to this series now.

  1. Oh, I'm SO excited you're reading these books! (I missed several blogging days due to report cards) It's my absolute favorite series, and I'm of the opinion that Roarke should be in every single book, ever. And don't worry that the crimes and Roarke being a suspect repeat in every book - that ends quickly.

    The later books can get a bit formulaic but the characters are so engaging that the books are still enjoyable. In fact, the most recent book was one of my favorites of the series. I'm so happy you like them - can't wait to see what you think of the rest of the series!

    1. I'm planning to join a challenge just for this series. Lol. I'm really enjoying them.

  2. Must read about Roarke!! One of these days you know

  3. Glad to know this series is still delivering and didn't suffer the infamous sophomore slump. Eve and Roarke sound like great characters to get to know.

    1. They are both great. I think the test will be the later books in the series since it has such a long run.
