Beneath the façade of glamour, Eve found that the world of high fashion thrived on an all-consuming obsession for youth and fame. One that led from the runway to the dark underworld of New York City where drugs could be found to fulfill any desire - for a price.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Really deserves 2.5 stars. It's a female detective story that just happens to be set in the future. The problems for me were many. Characters that were very monodimensional , formulaic and too predictable. The future was not used in any innovative way, it just serves as a backdrop. The author failed to present any vision of the future. Just imagine any TV crime show but instead of being in NY today its in a city in the future. Contrast this to China Mieville's " the City and the City" to see how an immaginitive mind can develop an idea and reshape the traditional detective genre based on a new paradigm. Third problem is that I'm male and this seemed to be pitched towards a female audience, as opposed to being a book by a female author written to appeal to either gender equally.
Love the series. Love the romance, mystery, and love scenes. Love Eve and Roarke and their times together. I find myself waiting for Roarke to appear and am impatient for him as the story progresses.
Long haul Expeditor that loves listening to books and make the miles fly by.
Just started this series and I'm glad I stumbled across it. It's a great listen has plenty of action and Eve's sense of humor is great! Her and Roarke make a great pair! Can't wait to finish listening to this series.
