(excellent)


Setting: NYC, 2058


First Sentence:

“The business of murder took time, patience, skill, and a tolerance for the monotonous.”

Synopsis (from Barnes&Noble.com): He is an expert with the latest technology . . . a madman with the mind of a genius and the heart of a killer. He quietly stalks his prey. Then he haunts the police with cryptic riddles about the crimes he is about to commit - always solved moments too late to save the victims' lives.

Police lieutenant Eve Dallas found the first victim butchered in his own home. The second lost his life in a vacant luxury apartment. The two men had little in common. Both suffered unspeakable torture before their deaths. And both had ties to an ugly secret of ten years past - a secret shared by none other than Eve's new husband, Roarke.


Random Thoughts: I really enjoyed this Eve Dallas story. The murders are connected to Roarke’s past making them much more personal for Eve. On to book #7…

This is one of my favorite J.D. Robb books as we finally get insight into Roarke's past and why he is the way he is.
