Publisher's Summary

Amaryllis Coltraine may have recently transferred to the New York City police force from Atlanta, but she's been a cop long enough to know how to defend herself against an assailant. When she's taken down just steps away from her apartment, killed with her own weapon, for Eve the victim isn't just "one of us."

Dallas's friend, Chief Medical Examiner Morris, had started a serious relationship with Coltraine, and from all accounts the two were headed for a happy future together. But someone has put an end to all that. After breaking the news to Morris, Eve starts questioning everyone, including Coltraine's squad, informants, and neighbors, while Eve's husband, Roarke, digs into computer data on the dead woman's life back in Atlanta. To their shock, they discover a connection between this case and their own painful, shadowy pasts.

The truth will need to be uncovered one layer at a time, starting with the box that arrives at Cop Central addressed to Eve, containing Coltraine's guns, badge, and a note from her killer: "You can have them back. Maybe someday soon, I'll be sending yours to somebody else." But Eve Dallas doesn't take too kindly to personal threats, and she is going to break this case, whatever it takes. And that's a promise.

    "Amazingly Touching."

    WOW. I didnt think I would be able to pick a favorite. I thought they were all on the same great level for me but this one was awesome. I cried boo hoo tears and I laughed out loud laughter. This one had all the elements and alll of the charcters played their role. Big props to Susan Ericksen she makes the whole stories come to life for me again and again. I felt so bad for Morris and Alex hopefully they will find another love to heal their aching heart.
    The ending epilogue was amazing, Butterflies are very significant for me as I lost a loved one a few years ago and she loved butterflies so to say this one was touching is not saying enough. Keep em' coming JD you have me hooked.

    "Promises in Death"

    I love all of the In Death. I loved this one also. The one thing I didn't like was Peabody's voice. I don't remember her voice sounding like this from other books I have listened to. Other than that I really liked the book.

    "Wonderful narrator, Great series"

    I have been a Nora Roberts fan since she first came on the scene writing for series romances (oh, so many year ago!). When she started writing her "in death" series I was hooked. Haven't missed a one and since they became available on audio my father-in-law has also become a fan. Listening to Susan Ericksen is a joy and a pleasure, her idividual voices bring the story to life. I hope she continues to narrate the J.D. Robb series because she is the best I have ever heard. Thank you!

    "Spotlighting Medical Examiner Morris"

    This was a good story line that brought more of ME Morris to the surface. I think I would have liked more about a life outside of the morgue for him though. Now the "dead" Doctor is dead inside, appropriate but sad. On the other hand, this showed more dynamics for all of the characters relating more with Eve and Roark.

    "Heartbreaking Story!"

    As always the narration is on point. If you've read/listened to each book up until now, these characters are practically family. And this story brings death a little too close to home. You just want to reach in and hug & comfort them!
