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.

Great story

I love the continuation of the story line in these novels. I’ve read all in order and this one is a
re-read through my audible books. If I gave any negative input it would be with Dallas I know she is gifted at her job and that is a strong part of the story line. But, by now, I have to be honest and say her way of looking at life and her self centered way is getting hard to hear. I find her to be clueless and almost so classless I can hardly say I even like her. It passed cute and acceptable and has moved on to self centered and with lack of maturity She doesn’t learn from the strong group of friends she has remains socially and personally immature. I’m finding her cute?? Quirks ??? Make her hard to like. But I must be one of few because her friends and especially her husband find her quirks cute and appealing I find her clueless and sometimes down right stupid.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
