The latest fast-paced, gripping crime novel from Nora Roberts writing under her J.D. Robb pseudonym. Yet again, the author has her finger on the pulse and delivers maximum tension with some terrific characters. Youâ€™ll be rewarded handsomely when you finish the book with a real feel-good feeling. Brilliant.
Eve Dallas has a grisly double homicide to solve when two young lovers - both employees of the same prestigious accounting firm - are brutally killed on the same night. It doesn't leave Eve a lot of leftover time to put together a baby shower for her best-friend Mavis, but that's supposedly what friends are for. Now Mavis needs another favour. Tandy Willowby, one of the mothers-to-be in Mavis's birthing class, didn't show up for the shower. Having only recently arrived from London, Tandy has few friends in New York, and no family - and she was really looking forward to the party. And when Eve enters Tandy's apartment and finds a gift for Mavis wrapped and ready on the table - and a packed bag for the hospital still on the floor next to it she realises something is wrong. Normally, such a case would be turned over to Missing Persons. But Mavis asks for Eveâ€™s - and she can't say no. She'll have to track Tandy down while simultaneously investigating the deals and double-crosses hidden in the files of some of the city's richest and most secretive citizens, in a race against this particularly vicious killer.
