The first book of the In Death series, featuring New York City homicide detective Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke.
It is the year 2058, and technology now completely rules the world. But New York City Detective Eve Dallas knows that the irresistible impulses of the human heart are still ruled by just one thing-passion. When a senator’s daughter is killed, the secret life of prostitution she’d been leading is revealed. The high-profile case takes Lieutenant Eve Dallas into the rarefied circles of Washing-ton politics and society.
Further complicating matters is Eve’s growing attraction to Roarke, who is one of the wealthiest and most influential men on the planet, devilishly handsome . . . and the leading suspect in the investigation.
Someone has begun killing licensed companions, aka legal prostitutes, in New York. The first of the six – the grand daughter of a prominent senator – has been murdered promised by the unsub, two more would follow closely. Lieutenant Eve Dallas has been made investigating officer on the case and it becomes clear to her how almost unerringly close how the murders resemble her horrible childhood. No evidence linking to the perp was left at each crime scene except a different hand gun which was used to do the deed. Soon enough Eve gets personal with one of the first suspects, the enigmatic, handsome and very successful tycoon Roark and this could seriously compromise her position in the investigation.
