I just can't get enough of this series. Eve's cases are suspenseful and emotional. add a little sideline of jealousy , just to mix it up and you've got another great book.
In this book the police procedural is second to the relationship issues between Eve & Roarke. These two characters have growth and development scenes in ever book in the series but this one if often gut wrenching.
The plot didn't keep me on the edge of my seat as much as the tension, fear, and, trust issues between Eve and Roarke. I often wanted to fast forward to the next Eve & Roarke scene but there are too many subtle hints of their problems within the procedural that you must listen.
She is one of the best narrators male or female. He voice, inflections, and emotions come through and, regardless of whether she is reading a male or female part, you totally believe she is that character telling the story. The best.
I cried several tears because Eve hurt so much. I also cried with the murderers family because of their pain and revelations. Roarke made me angry at times to the point that I wanted to punch him and yell but in true Roarke fashion he had those sweet, loving moments that only Roarke can deliver.
I love this series both in print and in audio format and hope it continues long into the future.
In the New York of 2060, the appearance of Magdalena Percell, an ex-lover and ex-colleague of Roarke's, shakes Lieutenant Eve Dallas's life to its foundations. She can't seem to hit her stride while investigating a series of sudden deaths at a high-profile private school. Once the conflicts in her personal life are resolved, Dallas defies the conclusions of both her computer and profiler Dr. Mira to prevent a sociopath killer from ever being able to strike again.
Well, this is an interesting case. A senseless murder with a bit of the classic triangle romance. A old flame wants Rooke back. Well let's guess what Dallas will do and who will win out. The solving of the murder might be disturbing. Still it is the author great style. I liked it.
