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 absolutely loved having my favorite characters in a new setting. Keep up the great work Nora Roberts!
Once again J. D. Robb has lead us down an intriguing path with twists and turns that keep the story going until the very end. It is amazing that book #33 is as fresh as #1. The characters continue to develop, growing stronger and more interesting with each novel. Additionally, I can't imagine these books without Susan Erickson reading them. I was introduced to Dallas and Rourke and the many cast of characters through Audible. On the rare occasion that I have had to "read" an In Death book, some of the novellas, Erickson is in my head!
This book was great, it had everything one expects from a JD Robb novel and kept me awake one night to listen to the whole thing.
This book was so intriguing that it was extremely difficult to stop listening. It was a fresh approach of the ongoing story line. It’s hard to believe that this book could be better than many of the others in this series. It leaves you wanting more and anxiously awaiting the next “In Death” book. The narrator is fantastic.
Just when I think I will get tired of the series...J.D. Robb proves me wrong - again!! I am happy to report - J.D. Robb proves she is still at the top of her game!!!! Woohoo - gotta say - glad to be wrong on this one ;) - although, I kinda knew I would be!!!!
I usually really enjoy this series but there wasn't much story in this book. There was a whole lot of Eve working through her issues. It got kind of old after a while. I'll be happy when the next book comes along since hopefully Eve has all this out of her system.
Nothing ... the story line was barely entertaining, there was too much emotive dialogue and angst, and the narration - especially the "Irish" accent - was only tolerable.
Draft a better story line, eliminate about a third of the angst (yea, Eve Dallas had a tough childhood, but the story obsessed over it so much that her qualifications as a detective were seriously questionable.
Stay in character ... there were times when Eve Dallas spoke in an Irish accent when the narrator had to switch between her and Roark.
This was the first book I have read from the " I Death" series an I thoroughly enjoyed it. The characters were interesting and the story was exciting! It was an interesting mix of science fiction in a detective novel. Now I'm going back to the beginning of the series and plan to listen or read all of them as this was book 33 I have a ways to go.
A totally sappy and absurd, endless story. The narrator was way over dramatic, the relationships ridiculous, and the "love story" part particularly nauseating. I will never again read or listen to a book written by J D Robb and will try to avoid books narrated by Susan Ericksen.
