    In a New York City fifty years in the future, Detective Eve Dallas tracks down those who break the law - including the ones sworn to uphold it. Eve Dallas and her partner, Peabody, are following up on a brutal, senseless crime - an elderly grocery owner killed by three stoned punks for nothing more than kicks and snacks. And for the first time, Peabody is primary detective on the case, which means she has to get used to a new level of authority and responsibility. Good thing she learned the ropes from a master like Eve. But after rounding up the perps, Peabody stumbles upon a much trickier situation.

    Overall

    New to this series and very much wanted to like it. Though the story moves along at a good pace, the story was what I would expect out of a one-hour, police procedural (and not a clever one at that). The characters are one-dimensional with the villan barely fleshed out. The dialogue is mostly predictable. Character motivations are easy stereotypes and the futuristic setting seems like an unnecessary plot device as the story could be set in the present and not suffer for it. The narrator is talented but given the material (or perhaps the direction of the production?) the narration - of the heroine in particular - is at times strident.

    Having said that, the series could be a fun beach read.
