It was one of Eve Dallas’s earliest takedowns, back in her uniform days. A monster named Isaac McQueen had been abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. Thanks to Eve, he wound up where he belonged, removed from civilized society in Rikers. But he’s not behind bars anymore.
After his escape, McQueen has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, preying on the young and innocent - when necessary, with the help of a female partner all too willing to be manipulated and to aid and abet his crimes. His other goal: to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago, now a high-profile lieutenant in the NYPSD and married to one of the city’s richest men.
Commanding Eve’s attention with a chilling and brazen crime, McQueen sets off the chase - forcing Eve down a road marked with blood and tears, a road that eventually leads southwest to Dallas, Texas, the home Eve fled long ago. And each new twist brings her closer to the harrowing memory of when she wasn’t a hardened detective but a vulnerable girl just like McQueen’s innocent prey. As her husband, Roarke, tries to rescue her from the nightmares that claw at her mind, and her partner, Peabody, doggedly works to support her, Eve must confront - and call upon - the darkest parts of her own soul in order to survive.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

I found this book difficult and disturbing to listen to at times. Not having any molestation or abuse in my past, I found it hard to continue listening. I can't imagine what someone who has been through a tramatic experience in their life would feel while listening to this selection. It made the hair on the back of my neck stand up listening to the cries and pleadings of the girls involved. Maybe I am overly sensitive to others suffering but I don't think I'll listen to this one again. I enjoyed her previous book much more.
this was another book about the life of Eve Dallas, -- most of the book is set in Dallas. One of her first arrests a very evil guy called the collector escapes from prison and it after Eve.
It is a little different since is set in Dallas. A lot of regulars are not in the book just on the "link" -- I could have used a little more of those guys. She seemed to be on her own with her support group far away
this was a good one in the a long line of good ones.
I am a huge Nora Roberts/JD Robb fan and have read them all. This was the first book I did not like. The topic of a pedophile criminal was hard to take and her continued failure to catch him was even worse...this was a dark book. Although, I hear often of these criminals in the news... I would have liked the suffering of the victims and her main character to end sooner. I love the suspense in her other books and know that there will be twists and turns in any Nora Roberts book; however, the last chapter of this book was not even a good/happy one as expected. Really a darker venture in writing for JD Robb. On a positive note, the narrator was very good.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
The story was a little too self centered on Eve, much more than usual. I love the series and can hardly wait to get the lastest in the series. This story was good but there was a lot of whining from Eve about her past. Enough all ready on the childhood stuff. Eve is a wonderful detective and the rest of the cast of characters are wonderful. Why not keep to the great stories? All that aside, it is an exciting story and I would recommend it.
It is getting harder to find a new adventure for these two but I liked it because they work together and work things out. It is nice to see a stable relationship when most of what is in books, movies and on TV is about people not making a relationship work.
This one picks up where Treachery in Death left off. Eve deals with the past in the latest Eve Dallas story. She chases an escaped prisoner from her early cop days. And her childhood memories return with a vengeance. Her relationship with husband Roarke is stronger than ever as they both deal with her past. Susan Ericksen is fantastic as usual.
I fear that the end is coming very soon to the in Death series
This is the first main book without the word "death" in the title. That is because this book is not only about death, but more about the birth and the road to salvation of the present day Eve Dallas whom we come to love so much
Most of the book takes place in Dallas, so we don't get to read much about her regular crew except Dr.Mira. But because Eve is what she is now, we feel the their presence with her. We know she can survive because of them. There is a touching scene with Galahad that almost made me cry.
This book is a MUST for fans
Once again JD Robb has done it. Kept me totally involved and focused on the story and as always waiting impatiently for the next one. Just can't wait. Susan Ericksen I love you. Thank you
J.D.Robb and Susan Ericksen, oh my !! These two talents are just the alt, I mean they are frigid!! Ok, now that I got that out of my system LOL, I just can't say enough about the In Death series. I mean 33 books and still fresh, intriging, not one character has gotten boring. Each one stays themselves but also evolves as time goes by. No one and I mean NO ONE could have pulled off each and every character in this series as well as Susan Ericksen. That is not to say I don't love and enjoy other narrators but for this Susan you are ice. Again, Robb and Ericksen you are great and great together PLEASE keep up the good work.
