Publisher's Summary

With the precision of a surgeon, a serial killer preys on the most vulnerable souls of the world's city streets. The first victim: a sidewalk sleeper, found dead in New York City. No bruises, no signs of struggle. Just a laser-perfect, fist-sized hole where his heart had once been. Lieutenant Eve Dallas is assigned to investigate. But in the heat of a cat-and-mouse game with the killer, Dallas' job is suddenly on the line. Now her hands are tied...between a struggle for justice - and a fight for her career.
Crack another case with Eve Dallas.

Keeps getting better and better

Any additional comments?

Every book just keeps getting better and better.  Once again I found myself not knowing who the bad guy was, which made the suspense and the story so much better. <br/><br/>A few of the novels I’ve guessed right away, this time I had no clue.  It was great.  I love listening as the story unfolds never knowing what direction things are heading but never wanting to stop listening.  This is a series I love and I can’t wait to dive back in.  <br/>

Cop Down to Her Bones

Even in 2059, New York has homeless. When Lieutenant Eve Dallas is called to the scene of the death of a sidewalk sleeper, she doesn't recognize Officer Bowers, but departmental problem child Bowers recognizes Dallas. The boulder sized chip on Bowers's shoulders is something Dallas could without. The victim, Snooks, is missing his heart. As Eve hunts for the killer, the vicious Bowers keeps getting in her way. And more disenfranchised show up with internal organs surgical removed. However, when Bowers turns up dead, Eve becomes the prime suspect and temporarily looses her badge. But the killer won't get Eve off his scent that easily. The cop inside Eve is more a matter of heart than official authority. With Roarke's help, and the help of her team still inside the department, Eve will find justice for the dead.

Still loving it

This is probably one of my favorite books in the series. Not only do we meet Louise but we get to watch Eve grow into a more rounded individual. And you have to love her reaction when Roarke suggests they could start a family! I love when those two talk about kids and babies!

This book had energy from beginning to end. I have to say Peabody has to be one of my favorite characters of all the books I've read in the past 😊

Eve and Roarke hit the wall and come out the other side

Being new to the Eve Dallas series this yea, I am enjoying the series a lot. It can feel a bit same/same if I overdose on more than one at a time but I am enjoying all the relationships Eve is building. I do love Roarke and Mavis and Peabody the best of the character who aren't Eve.

I sometimes want to smack Eve for some of her behaviour toward the people who love her but in this novel she really "gets" that she has people. Who she has become is so tied up with what she is - a great cop "standing for the dead" - that this particular story is truly harrowing. It costs her and those around her dearly.

It is a creepy story which I know will have its basis in reality because it seems like we have all been waiting for the scientists to come up with just this scenario.

I won't spoil it by saying any more. I have had two weeks off and am ready to go again.

My enjoyment of the books is, I know, doubled because of the expert work of Susan Erickson. Her narration, voices and pacing are superb.
