Technology may be different in 2060 New York, yet the city is still a place of many cultures and great divides. But as ever, some murders receive more attention than others-especially those in which the victim is a prominent businessman, found in his Park Avenue apartment, tied to the bed-and strangled-with cords of black velvet.
It doesn’t surprise Lieutenant Eve Dallas that Thomas Anders’s scandalous death is a source of titillation and speculation to the public-and of humiliation to his family. But while people in the city are talking about it, those close to Anders aren’t so anxious to do the same. With some help from her billionaire husband, Roarke, Eve’s soon knocking on doors-or barging through them-to find answers.
But the facts don’t add up. Physical evidence suggests that the victim didn’t struggle. The security breach in the apartment indicates that the killer was someone known to the family, but everyone’s alibi checks out. Was this a crime of passion in a kinky game gone wrong-or a meticulously planned execution? It’s up to Dallas to solve a case in which strangers may be connected in unexpected, and deadly, ways…Review: This is a series that constantly surpirses. Just when you think that it can’t get better it does. In this book Robb once again shows us that there is no perfect crime or in Eve’s case murder. The thing that I think makes this book and this series great is all the little side stories, one in each book, about the cast of characters she has created. The thing that keeps me coming back to this series is the way she created Eve and Roarke and has shaped and changed them, taking them from solitary people to a couple that has an amazing group of close friends that have become family. If you haven’t read the others in this series than I recommend picking them up, if you have read them than this won’t let you down.
