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.
71-year-old grandmother who has been an avid reader all my life. I have recently retired from being a litigation attorney (for Plaintiffs).
I really like the Eve Dallas series. I would never have expected to enjoy a futuristic detective novel, but J D Robb makes the conveniences of the future like ordering a Starbucks coffee every day. In this book, Eve returns to her past, at least in her mind, and in some fashion, reconciles what happened to her at age 6 with her life today. It helps that she has a millionaire husband who has enough money to satisfy her every desire, but that simply makes things easier for her, not more extravagant. She is not a spoiled rich wife, but a serious police detective accompanied by her somewhat serious side-kick, Peabody. This book is a good read with a great narrator.
I seem to always return to this series. Narration is spot on and storyline melds together with easy flow.
