Even though Eve can't quite see it that way, it's supposed to be at least partly a vacation. But work intrudes in the form of a bloody homicide, and Eve is off and running. The case is complicated by Eve's personal history with the victim - and by the killer's history with Roarke. As danger closes in and the body count rises, Eve must find a way to stop the cycle of violence and revenge, and shove the past back where it belongs.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

This is a fast read, but yet still interesting. Dallas comes up against a murder that she solves with an off-planet female cop and the plot is pretty good. Dialog is typically witty JD Robb style with the sense of humor that has some bite to it. Susan Erickson has managed to maintain the integrity of the voices, which is nice after having read a few where she was somewhat off. I'm not sure why the length was so short, but still it was a good read. Readers who have read several Eve Dallas novels will wonder if they have read the love scenes before. They have -- the writing of those segments is very similar to other novels in the series. But they don't take up too much of the novel. JD Robb pretty much sticks to the plot in this one.
All the characters that make Eve's "family" were there doing what they do best.
Susan has become one of the best parts of the In Death series. I miss hear when I read the books.
Yes! I know it was a short book but that helped me listen to it in one evening.
Don't pass on this book because of the size. You would miss a enjoyable time with old friends. If you are new to the series you will meet most of the clan.
Once again, I was able to spend a few hours with my NYPSD family. How I love these characters. This story, while less deep than the full length books, doesn't disappoint. I recommend it. And Susan Erickson is the BOMB!!
Always after books that read well in the tractor!
I had a bit of sticker shock, paying full price for only a few hours, but did not regret it! The plot was simple (not many surprises), but I loved the interaction with the characters. It was enjoyable, and worth the money for fans of the series!
Not one of my favorite Eve Dallas tales. The plot was weak. The bad guy realized the error of his ways too suddenly in the last few minutes of the book. I'm also getting a little tired of all the sex scenes between Eve and Roarke. If I was reading this book, I would have skipped through those scenes and finished it in 30 minutes.
JD ROBB is a fabulous writer! Eve and Roark do it again in this fast paced book! Lots of twists and turns that cannot be guessed! A good book any day of the year!
