This is an interesting series of which there are 20 so far so lots to get hooked into. They are police procedural stuff with a difference for they are set in 2058. I think they are great. Easy escapist fun with a sassy female detective, Eve Dallas, lots of blood and emotions, they carry you through tight plots at a swift pace.
Comparison: Sue Grafton, Sara Paretsky.

The killers breached an elaborate security system, slashed the throat of each victim while they slept and were in and out of the house in less than ten minutes. Bu they did make one mistake. They left a survivor…
Nine-year-old Nixie Swisher’s sudden urge for a midnight snack may just have saved her life. While her parents, brother and best-friend lay in their beds, oblivious to the danger, Nixie was in the kitchen and saw far too much.
