NYPSD Homicide Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband Roarke go to Ireland on a needed vacation; their first in quite a while. When they return to New York City, Eve finds her unit struggling with an apparent serial killer (or more) who changes his or her weapon of choice; always using something that seems arcane.

First the predator murdered chauffeur Jamal Houston sitting in his limo at La Guardia with a crossbow. That is followed with the killing of prostitute Ava Crampton at Coney Island's House of Horrors using a bayonet. Soon afterward celebrity chef Luc Delaflote falls to a harpoon. Finally, a bullwhip around her neck strangled Adrianne Jonas to death. Even as they become targets, Eve, her top assistant Detective Delia Peabody and Roarke find clues that frighten them with the apparent psychopathic implications.

The long running Dallas-Roarke futuristic police procedural (see Kindred in Death and Fantasy in Death) is made fresh by the killer(s) who will remind readers of Leopold and Loeb (see the movie Compulsion) though the implication has been used in other novels. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with action as the inquiry turns macabre and twp cops and their civilian ally become the prey of deadly predators. Sub-genre fans will enjoy this exciting entry.

    Love that Eve Dallas!

    As always, an absolutely stellar read from Nora Roberts AKA J.D. Robb. I love to follow the adventures of Eve Dallas and her hubby, Roarke. Can't wait for the next one!

    Recommend

    I am a big fan of the In Death Series, however, I was disappointed that the storyline was similar to a previous story already told. I fear that Ms. Robb is running out of inspiration! Say it isn't so please. Looking forward to your next book. I do recommend the book as it is well written.

    Loved reading it

    Once again J D Robb writes a book that I could not put down. It is a fast paced and intriguing story. I can't wait for the nest one

    This book sucks

    I got through the first 20 pages and gave it away. I don't really read J. D. Robb books and the fact that it takes place in 2030 is really bizzare. Anyway, by 2030 you won't need detectives solving cases they will send that job to India too!

    better

    I used to love this series. This book was better than some of the recent entries in this series like Stranger in Death and Fantasy in Death. I love how it started in Ireland. I expected it to end with the barbecue. If that had happened, I would feel good about this book.

    Sweet Indulgence

    Maybe you just have to love JD Robb books, but I enjoyed this one as much of the others. I like when she knows early on who the murderers are, after all, it's the machinations of her mind that brings the smile and the satisfaction.

    Another Winner from Robb.

    This plot was one of her best and included all my favorite characters. Although several, Nadine and Mavis, didn't have a speaking role, they were part of the story line. Also Roarke didn't spend all his time helping the police and actually did some of his own work. Her relationship with Summerset seems to have settled into mutually bantering jabs toward each other and she doesn't appear so rude and obnoxious when dealing with him. All in all, this was a great read and couldn't put it down until finished. Waiting for her next "In Death" novel.
