THE #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING SERIES...
The chilling suspense novel from the author of Brotherhood in Death.
After a party in New York, Lieutenant Eve Dallas rides home with her billionaire husband, Roarke, happy to be done with cocktails and small talk.
After another party, not far away, a woman retires to her bedroom with her husband - and walks into a brutal nightmare.
Their paths are about to collide...
When the young woman - dazed, naked, and bloody - wanders in front of their car, Roarke slams on the brakes just in time, and Eve, still in glittering gown and heels, springs into action. It's been a long night for the tired homicide cop, and it's far from over.
Daphne Strazza is rushed to the ER, but it's too late for Dr. Anthony Strazza. A brilliant orthopedic surgeon, he now lies dead amid the wreckage of his obsessively organized town house, his three safes opened and emptied. Daphne would be a valuable witness, but in her terror and shock the only description of the perp she can offer is repeatedly calling him "the devil"...
While it emerges that Dr. Strazza was cold, controlling, and widely disliked - and that he treated Daphne like a trophy wife - this is one case where the evidence doesn't point to the spouse as the first suspect. So Eve and her team must get started on the legwork, interviewing everyone from dinner-party guests to professional colleagues to caterers, in a desperate race to answer some crucial questions:
What does the devil look like? And where will he show up next?
Story was exceptional, as always. Must read or listen too. Absolutely love these characters the book is beautifully written. Enjoyed it
Same old, same old, same old.....you can almost predict what is going to occur.....the characters are so likeable that it gives one the added incentive to continue......a interesting look into Eve's past....not quite sure how she relates this to the victims in this story....
The end has a interesting twist.....an unexpected answer to "Who Done It"
I own every one of the in death series and I have loved them from the beginning. This is the 1st time I purchased the audio version and will be the last. This narrator really did not do the author's words or the characters justice. That terrible accent used when relaying Roarke's words was atrocious.
