The number-one New York Times-bestselling author J. D. Robb presents an intense and terrifying new case for New York homicide cop Eve Dallas, one that will take her all the way to the city that gave her her name-and plunge her into the nightmares of her childhood.
When a monster named Isaac McQueen-taken down by Eve back in her uniform days-escapes from Rikers, he has two things in mind. One is to pick up where he left off, abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. The other is to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago.
I love this series, while admittedly there have been books that I thought were good, there have been others that I thought were excellent and have re-read several times. This is one of those books.
Isaac was Eve’s very first collar. She was a beat cop when she literally stumbled on him and his atrocities. It was at this case that she comes into Feeney’s view and he see’s something in her. Setting her on the path that she was made for.
Issac has escaped from prison and is taunting Eve. If she doesn’t follow him to Dallas well then some really bad stuff is going to happen. She has no choice so she and her expert civilian consultant head there. It is in a word a cluster F*%$ for her.
Things that she thought that she’d dealt with come racing to the surface, the cop shop looks and smells nothing like hers, oh and the feds are involved as well. There are some tense moments with Roarke, but what else is new with these two right?
There is a secondary story line that I won’t reveal anything about that I thought was written the only way it could be and make complete sense for the people that are involved in it. If it had been written any other way it would have been false to these characters.
This is one of those books where I will tell you that if you like Eve and Roarke you HAVE to read this book. In fact I have placed it in the top 5 of my favorite books in this series.
