Her career in homicide has taken her into the darkest depths of New York City’s underground - and sometimes Lieutenant Eve Dallas feels more comfortable in those kinds of places than in the high-rise, high-society world of her billionaire husband, Roarke. But while she’s no party girl, she’s managing to have a reasonably good time at the celebrity-packed bash celebrating the debut of The Icove Agenda. This time it’s Eve, not Roarke, who’s a guest of honor, since the film is based on one of her famous cases. Her partner, Peabody, is practically giddy over rubbing shoulders with Hollywood royalty. Eve, on the other hand, is more likely to roll her eyes than have stars in them. But she has to admit it’s a little spooky seeing the actress playing her, who looks almost like her long-lost twin. Not as unsettling, though, as seeing K. T. Harris, the actress who plays Peabody - drowned in the lap pool on the roof of the director’s luxury building. Talented but rude, and widely disliked, K.T. had made an embarrassing scene during dinner. She clearly liked being the center of attention. Now she’s at the center of a crime scene - and Eve is more than ready to get out of her high heels and strap on her holster, to step into the role she was born to play: cop.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Good story in the series. Fast paced and interesting. Explores the relationships between the characters a bit more. Highly recommend this book and the entire series. This one touched on the movie industry in the future, which was interesting. Pretty mellow but a good one!
Had I known that J.D. Robb was a nom de plume for Nora Roberts, I would never have bought it. That said, the phony lingo- wrist unit for watch, blocker for pain medication, etc. is off-putting and pretentious. The narrator is good - that's about all I can say.
No. Dragged for too long.
It needed more action.
Eve and Roark.
JD Robb will always be a buy. I think this book could have been better. I love that the main characters are developing and evolving. Her place in the department needs to go to the next level.
I hope the next book will have more exciting plot. This had too many characters and I wasn't interested enough to keep up with them.
